Text-to-image AI is all the rage right now with both Google and Meta pushing out their own versions on top of the OpenAI’s impressive DALL-E offerings.

The TikTok filter, AI Greenscreen has been live on the app for a few days now and it brings with it some interesting capabilities. The idea behind the app is that you type in a prompt and it will then turn the text into an image that represents the text, and you then use that image as the background for your TikTok videos.

It has to be said that the quality of the images that AI Greenscreen creates are not as good as those you will get from DALL-E or the Meta or Google offerings but the fact that is essentially giving TikTok users a chance to try out cutting-edge AI technology as a filter for their social media videos is impressive. If you want to give it a try, keep reading.
