When my yearly subscription to Creative Fabrica was ending I decided to update it again for another year. The reason for this was so I could continue using the AI generators to create graphics. One of the generators in particular has always been my favorite; “Spark”. And wouldn’t you know it? It just happens to be the one that they are modifying. They are going to be adding it to the new Flow AI generator online tool.
Now I have tried out the beta of the Flow generator and I have to say; I’m not the least bit impressed by it. There are several reasons for that but the main reason is; WHY keep messing with things when they are working as intended? I can understand updating things to make them better and easier to use, but the Flow AI generator does neither.
First of all the images it generates are small in comparison to the original Spark generator. The generated images using spark are a whopping 4000 pixels (and sometimes larger) compared to Flow which generates images that are only 512 pixels on either side. So, I wouldn’t exactly call that an improvement, lol. And yes, I realize that this is the BETA but seriously, 512 pixels? What were they thinking?
Anyway. Since they have created this new AI generator called Flow the old Spark AI generator now seems to be broken. Convenient huh? Well, at least it will work to a degree. It’s supposed to generate 4 images at a time but now, it only generates the last 2 images every time. Seems odd considering it gives the error saying that the image couldn’t be created due to a generator error. Which got me thinking. If it IS a generator error like it says, then why does it create the last 2 images ONLY? I mean if it really was broken why would it create anything at all for that matter. It just seems weird to me.
In any case, I created a screen shot so you can see what I’m talking about. And as you can see, it gives an error each time you use it. And ONLY for the first 2 images it creates:
