Nov 7, 2023
Base Model
SD 1.5

Added symbolic link feature so you no longer have to duplicate your models from your web UI!

DiffEx is an easy to use Desktop UI for AnimateDiff CLI Prompt Travel. It takes out a lot of the headache and labor needed to create animations by doing most of the work for you. A detailed readme is included to get you up and running!

New Features in v1.5

  • Console-less! A cool new progress bar has taken the place of the console for a less cluttered user experience.

  • Folder walking! Any sub folders in your Stable Diffusion directories will now be detected and added to DiffEx.

  • Added a refresh button so you no longer have to restart DiffEx after downloading new models.

  • Added the ability to use a video as an IP-Adapter for better coherence especially when using Stylize.

  • Added the Canvas to the Region tab so you can now draw your masks inside of DiffEx.

  • Added a Separate feature to Regions for better layer separation in the final output.

  • Added support for Ckpt and Pt files.

  • More bug fixes and optimizations of course.


  • Stylize mode added (vid2vid) DiffEx will automatically create prompts out of your videos. You can select them from your hard drive or automatically download them using yt-dlp (built in).

  • LoRA mapping allows you to isolate LoRAs to a specific region and ramp its strength along the duration of your animation.
