will start my training soon! haha.
Now, I understand what you all are talking about.
About content creation, When I worked on Nano Canvas, it used an NNW and your own Paintings only, meaning, you had to make the effort to create something using unique brushes and animations.
then the APP, will random it, so basically it is all you. you will then have to choose your best paintings, so the computer will learn.
Mid Journey, for example, shows something that for me is really valid as everything in AI should, true it takes from known projects and master arts of other people, BUT!
it is never like anything created before, making it a new Form of Artwork, that was not seen, and no one could really trace it to the original, HOWEVER, if you used it, you will never have to worry about the Original, as
IT will never be the same, you won't even know where the original came from, and who is the creator of any kind of art that was used in order to create a new sample.
Therefore, even the owner of the original can not know it is his strokes on the paint shop, or even if Devinchi was alive today, he would have no idea that this was taken from his work as it looks too different.
The only thing Devinci would have figured out, is, "ok.. it looks like something I would do" meaning, Themed as something he would do
with that said, how many people saw Devinchi paintings and tried to mimic it? the atmosphere of his art that is, so if someone wanted to create something by his favorite artists or just something that looks like it still does not mean
he was copying it from him, but just learning how to achieve something that someone else really made him feel comfortable and familiar with.
Therefore, Let's go into the Car industry, do not you hate that all cars have a windshield, 4 wheels, doors, and a Gasoline engine?
So then Tesla comes with an electric one, and now everyone has it, is that stealing? or just improving your own factory results into new energy and concepts that might look the same?
Would you say, that all Nascar cars look a bit the same just from different factories or branding?
Would you say, all Airplanes from Boieng to all other factories look the same?
would you say, that if they all have wings, and a cockpit and all cockpits have 500 buttons, probably the same buttons, so what did everyone just steal from the Reich brothers? (I think that was their name)
same with boats, but wait, we all have Laptops, the first one I presume was IBM, so what did anyone steal from IBM?
Do you see my point? even if it is Hand labored it still can be considered a Steal.
How about Marvel and DC? it is a long competition, and every time Marvel created a new Hero, DC tried to Mimic it just giving it slightly different powers and a different name.
If I create a new movie, staring Will Farrel about a really dumb boat idea that can never float and someone else sees it, falls in love with the move, and decided he can do better just with an Animal Robot dumb idea and use another actor, it is basically the same dumb movie idea, both went to Box Office, both made millions, is that stealing? just because the actors were different? and the Script changed? well, Hollywood is making these for years now.
Why? well they make money.
So, my opinion is really solid, USE AI as you want.
But, I do agree with everyone here, maybe the first thing if decided by TGC to go in this direction, is to use it mainly (at start) for bug fixes, feature requests, etc so they would have less time concerning how to fix stuff, more time to actually fix them.
One last note,
Unreal was the first presented Engine for game making that was AAA on the market.
Then comes Unity another AAA just more lightweight, they say, I do not really believe it, both are really heavy.
This is called completion. basically, because Unity was released, Unreal made more money. Competition. that's the idea I am talking about.
If I modeled a really cool 3d warrior, and I can use Ai, to show me different Shader Technics, even if was suggested by people's hard work before, no matter what I do or do not do with it, the Model, the Code, the Game are my own heart and logic, even if it is just Waking up in the morning, saying I have this really cool game idea of bla bla bla, and I use Ai to generate a preview, even upload to Youtube something that was taken from other places but became originally mine, as the idea was mine, plus all content DOES NOT look like the originals.
It is not about not appreciating the hard work of others, if they did not do that work, we would not have AI.
Then again, My Nano Canvas app, which was later Patentised by a stealing "asshole" (yeah I understand everything you say... lost my wife because of that theft.. ) and today is even used inside PS 5 Tech,
I/ just returned from Asia, it was really fun, knowing I got some "Guards" from all kinds of Asian countries. good experience in Asia, you should all go visit, they are Tech savvy.
For example, I did not know, they are giving Mobile Power Banks for 1.5 USD so you can charge your phone on 7/11 and then return it to them. really special.
I am actually fighting a lot of people for that patent theft. but eventually, I realized, I really like to just raise a family, it is more important. regardless of the money issues, smiling and dancing, is funnier.
So it is obvious, I need to find a Ballerina that will accept me as an Ai enthusiast. so I will do more Emotional work, and less talk on the forum about why AI IS SO IMPORTANT TO HAVE, no matter what you do with it, let the people decide, and present it.
