Combinatorial Explosion

The other day someone asked if it were possible for two people to settle on the same prompt and then get the same end result. Technically the answer is yes, because numbers always have a limit, however, the probability here is insanely rare. It’s kind of a trippy thing to think about. So get this…

When you enter a prompt it is assigned a random seed, and the seed creates the random noise from which the image generates from. A seed can be from 0 to 4,294,967,295. So let’s round and say chances are 1 in 4,294,967,296 since 0 is an option - but that’s not it. One generation gives you 4 images, so technically now the chances are 4 times that now. But wait, what about parameters? If Stylize is from 0 to 1000 in V4, that is now 1000 more options per seed, per grid. Then add Chaos into the mix and we have 0 to 100 more options per seed, per stylize. Now if you multiply all of the options together we are looking at something like 1 in 174,000,000,000,000,000. I didn’t know this but that number is 174 quintillion.

The problem is that we are not even done yet. We could use 4a or 4b, V2 or V3, and even toss in aspect ratios. The combinational explosion is too large for me to even contemplate. So basically the amount of variation and randomness is so freakin’ high that it would be amazing if two people not only landed on the same exact prompt, but also got the same final image… I’m not going to do that math, so let’s call this chat done.

Fonts In MidJourney

Months ago I came up with a method to spell words in MidJourney using image prompt, but it takes a lot of time because you need to design a letter in Photoshop, save it, upload it, and prompt it - for every single letter! I had an idea to automatically batch an...

Don’t Use GTP

A little warning on this post. Usually I am a nice and helpful guy, but time to time I need to go on an angry rant, lol... GPT is an amazing AI technology, and incredibly helpful for everything from communication to coding, but it is NOT for MidJourney. When I posted...

Willow Dog Runs

I have a little corgi puppy that I adore, but she is a bit crazy. We like taking her for hikes in the woods, but she seems to think the point of hiking is to run at full speed, like it's a race, gotta win! It makes me laugh, and so I wanted to make a flicker animation...

Tutorial: Batcher, For Batching

So I just made a new tool in Prompter called… Batcher… and It does exactly what you'd think, you know, it batches, duh. If a prompt builder is designed to create one prompt, why not have one to create TONS of prompts to pick from?! Typing sucks. Check a box next to...
