Now even easier to run Disco Diffusion 5.6 on RunPod

BY ZHEN LU - JULY 16, 2022
While the entmike fork on RunPod is pretty rad, we do get that some of you may want to try the latest and greatest features and can't wait for the 10 seconds it takes Mike to catch up ;). While running vanilla DD on RunPod has always been an option, we've decided to make it even easier to get started by integrating the notebook into our default run template.

This is going to be a really short one - since it's so easy!

All you have to do is spin up a new pod. Then, instead of picking one of our notebook files, fire up the one called "DISCO_DIFFUSION_5.6_VANILLA.ipynb". It's that easy!

NOTE*: It's a pretty trivial change for us to bundle this with our template, so we'll be updating the version as DD gets updated. If it's out of date, feel free to let us know and we'll update it asap! :)

This notebook file is identical to the one in the alembics repository, with one small pathing change to take advantage of our pre-downloaded model files. This way, you don't have to wait a long time for the gigs of models to be downloaded. You can just choose your settings and start rendering!
