If you ever wanted paint a photorealistic landscape portrait Bob Ross would be proud of, but you have almost no artistic ability, the new Canvas app from Nvidia to will make those dreams come true.
Using GauGAN, a AI paint tool, the Canvas application allows users to paint by drawing lines and shapes on a virtual canvas. And then, AI will transform each brushstroke into the material you want to produce, like clouds and grass.
Canvas uses “materials” instead of colors, what you accelerates the artistic process and see your finished product much faster. So, for example, if you created a body of water but wanted add some big rocks to the image, the Canvas application will allow you to draw the shape of a rock and paint it with the appropriate material color. In this way, the AI will generate the object in the image in real time and will include appropriate water reflections.
The Canvas app is located currently in beta and includes 15 materials and 9 styles Y is available to download right now. Unfortunately, the application only available to RTX graphics card owners, like an RTX 20 series, 20 Super variants, the Titan or Quadro RTX and the RTX 30 series (as long as you were lucky enough to get one).
In other Nvidia news, we remind you that the company has already unveiled the latest RTX 30 series graphics cards. More specifically, the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. You can read more about them in this article. Also, last week we learned that Nvidia will stop supporting GeForce GTX 600/700 graphics soon. That means Kepler GPU owners will not receive new ‘Game Ready’ driver updates. You can read all the details, as well as the affected cards, here.
