Indian Developers Build AI Tool to Convert any Image or Video Into a Cartoon. Since the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI), we have seen the technology in use in every sector of the market. From assisting the military in controlling a full-scale ship, companies are using AI to its full potential in conjunction with existing technology. Now, two Indian developers have used technology to create a tool that can turn any picture or video into a cartoon.
The cartoonist, created by Tejas Mahajan and Niraj Pondkar, is basically an AI tool that can convert any video or image into cartoons using the AI method. The tool was developed by two Indian developers using a research paper by researchers Jinrui Wang and Jinje Yu from the University of Tokyo. The authors from Kitub used the open source official function of the paper by giving them appropriate credit for their works.
To test the tool, Niraj Pondkar, one of the developers of “Cartoonizer”, took some videos and turned them into animated versions. One of the videos is a 4 minute scene from the Marvel Avengers movie, which you can watch below.
Now, if you want to convert your videos using the tool, keep in mind that the length of the video should not exceed 10 seconds and the maximum size of the video should be 30MB.

To test the tool’s image conversion capability, it only takes .JPG and .PNG files, I fed it to one of my pictures, “Cartoonizer”. After a few seconds of processing, the tool gave me an animated version of the image, and you can see the difference below.
So, I’m very happy to find that the tool works well and as TNW points out in their report, “Cartoonizer” works well on people of color.
According to the device’s developers, “Cartoonizer” is currently an early version of the AI tool and can be used to “clear clues” of games and anime. This tool is also used to create minimalist art images, and can help graphic designers and animators in their work.
You can try the tool to revive yourself or your loved ones on its official website.
