Working out ways to bring AI tools into your workflow is one of the most current dilemmas facing many digital artists. As Martin Nebelong argues in his opinion piece on ‘AI art is only a threat if we let prompt-jockeys take control’, learning ways to make AI work for us and not replace us is crucial.


One of these new AI tools that can be a useful addition to your workflow is Immersity AI (formerly LeiaPix), which quickly turns 2D illustrations into 3D animation, ideal for bringing a sketch, painting or scene to life. Immersity AI is akin to turning your 2D art into short animations that simulate the motion of a 3D camera moving through an image using next-gen depth maps.


So who is LeiaPix for? The idea for creating the platform is to enable non-3D users the chance to give their 2D art a new level of depth, and offers a glimpse of how art can be experienced in VR. It’s an ideal way to get images into AR and VR, such as the best VR headsets, including Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3.
