Unleashing Creativity with AI Video Tools
A Closer Look at Genmo's Replay, Runway's Gen-2 & Pika
Total reading time is about 4 minutes.
A revolution is taking place in video creation, spearheaded by cutting-edge AI tools, and we’ve seen a huge improvement in the capability of GenmoAI, RunwayML’s Gen-2, and Pika’s animation features.
I’m excited about the improving text-to-video and image-to-video technology. I never thought I would make video content, but I am learning how to generate many different types of animation for multiple platforms.
Now, you can do it too.
Genmo Updates Replay Video Tool
Genmo's AI innovation continues to shine bright in Replay v0.2:
Replay is a new text-to-video tool on Genmo's multi-modal AI platform. The latest features include:
Drag or drop images to use as style references
Create up to 3 videos at the same time
Generate longer videos of up to 6 seconds
The image quality is outstanding. Try Genmo Replay here.

Comparing Runway Gen-2, Pika, and Genmo
Which video tool works best?
It depends on what you are trying to create and your preferences.
Each one allows you to upload a starting image to animate, generate a new image, or a combination of an uploaded image plus a text prompt.
Other features to consider when comparing these tools:
Pika, Genmo, and Runway’s Gen-2 have the ability to control angles, speed, and rotation.
Pika - 3 seconds
Genmo - 6 seconds
Runway - 18 seconds (each video is 4 seconds and can be extended 4 times, but quality and composition are difficult to maintain after the first extension.
Pika is only available in Discord.
Gen-2 and Genmo exist on their individual brand platforms.
Pika is free for everyone.
Genmo’s free plan includes unlimited video generation and a paid option for unlimited fast generation.
Runway has a limited free plan and requires a paid subscription for continued use.
Here is a comparison of each one with the same starting image:
