Abstract: In this work, we present CogVideo, a 9B-parameter transformer for text-to-video generation. The CogVideo model has been trained by inheriting a pretrained text-to-image model, CogView2, which significantly reduces the training cost and alleviates the problem of scarcity and weak relevance. We also propose a multi-frame-rate training strategy for better aligning text and video clips. CogVideo achieves state-of-the-art performance in machine evaluation and outperforms publicly available models by a large margin in human evaluation. Its codes and model are also publicly available at
