Hedra’s Character-1

Hedra’s Character-1 model allows users to create lip-synced videos from a still image, adding expressive movements and greater levels of animation. It’s currently free during the research preview, allowing users to experiment and help test the model and moderation tools.

Despite a 30-second video cap and low resolution, Hedra is one of those rare things that makes me go ‘wow.’ Future plans include creating a multimodal studio for fully controllable and realistic characters capable of expressive dialogue, movement, etc.
