Midjourney V6 Alpha Upgrade🔥

After refinements, v6 will become the default Midjourney model later this month. The much-anticipated features: Inpainting and Outpainting (Zoom and Pan) have arrived!

Inpainting and Outpainting is Here🎨

These beloved long-awaited capabilities: inpainting, pan, and zoom-out have arrived!

  • Vary Region(Inpainting): Enable removing unwanted elements or changing parts of an image.

  • Zoom Out: Provides greater control over cropping and perspective (1.5 / 2 / Custom).

  • Pan: Extend your image in four different directions

These options are now available under V6 Bot Upscale:

New Pan Feature ⭐️

The old Pan increased resolution when panning sideways but often caused concept repetition and loss of coherence. It aimed more at storyboarding usage.

New pan to keep image resolution and coherence, mimicking zoom functionality.

The New Pan Works more like Zoom with:

  • More coherence & less repetition of concepts

  • Pan now works with upscale/vary/remix but doesn’t infinitely increase resolution anymore.

  • Preserve the quality and seamlessly reframe the scene when panning.

  • Easier to use: Straightforward left-right-up-down sliding without compromising image integrity.

  • Users can also upscale post-panning

Use cases like extending a character’s body vertically now work smoothly.

Overall, this rebuilt Pan aims for greatly increased ease of use via intuitive operation like Zoom.

Coming Next Week 🚀

Upcoming, expect to see

  1. Style Reference: A new style consistency feature

  2. Niji 6: For anime

  3. A new /describe

1. Style Reference

Style consistency that maintains aesthetics across prompts will be landing soon. Character consistency follows afterward.

  • Replicate a Style: It will function similarly to an image prompt, but instead of replicating the content, it will replicate the style.

  • The release of style tuners is upcoming, and testing for style references will begin soon.

2. Niji 6

Niji 6 is currently in the final testing and tuning phase. It will be rolled out next Monday!

Initially, it may not support drawing text due to the complexity involved with multiple languages.

3. New /describe

The new /describe feature is currently in development and might be available as early as next week if successful.

New Style Tuner 🎨

A New Style Tuner will be released in February.

Performance and Quality Improvements 🚀

  • Speed Increase: V6 optimizations anticipated

  • Upscale Feature Evaluation: Potential enhancements under review

  • Training Algorithm Enhancement: New “/describe” algorithm aims to boost image accuracy

  • GPU Shortage Management: Ensuring service quality for current user base

Video 🎥

Video generation is in active development

The initial video features are nearing release in a basic version. These features will likely be limited and may be connected to an image upscaler, with minimal control available to the user.

V6 may soon become the default, and there are considerations for additional updates or a potential transition to V7.
