Welcome to another edition of VP Land.
Midjourney has a great new feature that adds a lot more control over the image style. Also, how does an iPhone 15 hold up against a BMPCC?
Got a virtual production related event coming up? Let us know so we can add it to the calendar.
Runway & Midjourney Add Better Output Controls
Tuning Midjourney images to an 11
Midjourney just rolled out a new feature with lots of potential: Tune.
With Tune, you can quickly train a style to match the look you want. Plus you can use it across any prompt to keep generated images looking consistent.
Here’s the quick rundown of how it works:
Run the /tune command in MJ
Type in a simple prompt
You’ll then get sent to a Style Tuner page, where you can choose between 16, 32, 64, or 128 pairs of image grids
Run through the pairs and pick the style you like more
The style tuner generates a code you add to your prompt (
Run your prompt as you normally would with the style code to generate consistent looking images.

Other tips to keep in mind:
Already seen some great uses with Tune for moodboard generation:
Runway updates their model to also take generated videos to an 11
I swear, I didn’t just watch Spinal Tap, I’m just low on puns today.
Runway rolled out an update to their text2vid and img2vid generation. Oliver has a great comparison of the outputs on the new model vs the old one.
Also, if you want to see Runway generation in action, trying to create a marketing video in an hour (and hitting tons of content moderation roadblocks), check out our new video.

How does Apple LOG on the iPhone 15 hold up against that e BMDCC? From the reveal that the Apple Keynote was shot entirely on an iPhone, we know what it’s capable of. But the setup in this test gave away the limitations of the iPhone vs a bigger sensor camera.
