The work was created specifically to discuss the acute issue of artificial intelligence and witch-hunting.
The topic of AI works in 3d galleries has hit some users very hard. And it is understandable, now it is possible to create good quality works much faster than ever before. And someone will simply use them as a new tool, and someone will sharpen pitchforks and in each work to look for malicious provocateurs, demanding a grid work.
The truth is, over time, AI will enter every artist's pipelines through the development of familiar tools, rather than moving to something radically new. And it's not about creating a project with the "make pretty" button. Already many people are using AI tools in Photoshop for various micro-tasks. For example, to remove a group of people in the middle ground from the ready frame on the re-rendering will take 20 minutes, to smear with a stamp a couple of minutes, and AI Remove tool in Ps it can be done in a few seconds. You can get steamy and be a 3dschnik, or you can just solve the problem in a couple of clicks, saving time on pointless work.
Some will think, this is a disparate comparison. It's one thing to solve a micro problem, it's another to create a synthetic visualization based on an empty dummy. But where is that clear line of what is acceptable within 3D and what is not?
There have been comments on my past work: https://render.ru/ru/gallery/artwork/233687 that it doesn't belong in a 3d gallery. This may be a very fair comment, as the final shots really do show almost everything not at 3D level. But in the current work is the opposite ratio, the work was initially made in Full CG (2020), and only then 5% processed by neuronka. Is this work appropriate for a 3d gallery? What if I had only processed people or a couple plants?
I'll agree with the suggestion of the people whose feelings were hurt. It would be great to create a separate category on the site for AI works, where works with the use of AI of any degree of impact on the project would be posted. This way there will be no offended, unnecessary disputes about belonging to the section. And also to simplify the filtering of works by interest to other visitors of the site, who want or do not want to see such works.
I invite those who are not indifferent to this topic to join the discussion. Perhaps collectively we can find a better solution to the problem.
P.S. On Behance I briefly described a service for finalizing rendering details. Who is interested in cooperation, contact me in any convenient way. https://www.behance.net/gallery/179352113/AI-Case-45-Mountain-viewpoint
