You must have TikTok v31.1.0 or a later version to use this template.

The Art Maker template allows you to use generative technology to turn your camera feed into unique artwork. This template contains an Art Maker object that allows you to configure settings to create generative artwork. It can not be added to any other Effect House project and only exists within the Art Maker template.

The Art Maker Slide template is a separate template that works the same way as Art Maker, but with a sliding transition animation. Learn more about how to use the Art Maker Slide template.

Configure the following settings to customize your generative artwork:

  • Text Prompt: Enter the details of your desired artwork. Use precise and descriptive language to describe your desired outcome. Make sure the prompt details follow our Community Guidelines.
  • Style: Choose one style. Select from Classic Anime, Retro Anime, Fantasy, Collage, Abstraction, Pop Art, or Cool Tone Anime.
  • Text Strength: Determine how closely the output matches your text prompt. A higher value indicates greater fidelity to the text prompt.
  • Test Image: Upload a test image to test your generated artwork on.
  • Preview Count: Control the number of preview images that are generated.

Once you have entered your specifications, click Generate image. After loading, preview images will populate the window.

Customize Your Scene

You can add 3D objects, images, and other assets to the scene. Art Maker will detect these and incorporate them into the final output. Adding different props greatly influences what Art Maker can do with your image!
