  • Added skybox export functionality for PNG, HDRI (exr, hdr), Depth Map, Cube Map and Video (portrait, landscape, square). Explained in more detail in the Skybox Exports section of the documentation.
  • Depth map is now always generated when using the Generate Skybox request.

# July 28, 2023.

  • Added enhance_prompt as a request parameter in the Generate Skybox API route

When sent as true, it will take a short prompt parameter like “wildflower meadow” and turn it into something like:

“a vibrant expanse of wildflower meadow, painted with vivid hues of nature, under the serene blue sky, kissed by the soft sunlight, buzzing with tiny insects”

Enhance Prompt mode also, for the first time, makes it possible to ask Skybox AI for what you want rather than prompting it. Without this new feature, typing in “Hey please create me a really cool river scene” will result in a sub-par result since really only the word “river” is giving the AI the context it needs to create, while the Prompt Enhancer will turn that into a prompt like

“tranquil serenade of a babbling crystal-clear river snaking its way through a verdant valley, sun-dappled leaves whispering overhead, colorful birds flitting through the sky, a soothing tableau of nature”

This new parameter allows anyone to have an AI automatically improve their prompt to generate pro-level results every time.
