About Decoherence

Video creation is undergoing a massive transition. When video started, only studios with large budgets could create compelling videos. Then, with handheld cameras and smartphones, millions of people gained the ability to create great videos. Sites like Youtube, Tiktok, and Instagram are flooded with wonderful user-created videos today.

Generative AI is continuing this 100+ year trend of democratizing video creation to all. Instead of needing to go out and film, users can create videos from just text prompts! However, it's not easy to use this technology... There are complicated hardware requirements, constant research improvements, and too much randomness with the outputs.

Decoherence is building a purpose-built tool for video creation to solve all these problems. Our tool gives users an intuitive interface and unique controls over the video generation process. It eliminates all requirements and lets our users simply get to work creating their ideal video.
