How to Install animatediff-cli Prompt Travel on Windows

animatediff-cli is a command line tool to help you generate animation using Stable Diffusion models. animatediff-cli-prompt-travel adds prompt travel feature to make it even more powerful. Follow the instructions to install this powerful AI animation tool on Windows.



  • Open up a command prompt and change directory to where you want to install animatediff-cli-prompt-travel.
  • Enter the following commads to install it.
    git clone
    cd animatediff-cli-prompt-travel
    python -m venv venv
    set PYTHONUTF8=1
    python -m pip install --upgrade pip
    python -m pip install torch torchvision torchaudio --index-url
    python -m pip install -e .
    python -m pip install -e .[stylize]
    python -m pip install -e .[dwpose]
    pip install pytorch_lightning
  • Download Stable Diffusion models and put them in data\models\sd .  If you already have some Stable Diffusion models, you can use mklink to make it available to animatediff-cli-prompt-travel. For example, I entered this in an elevated command prompt under the data\models\sd directory.
    mklink MeinaV11.safetensors d:\stable-diffusion-webui\models\Stable-diffusion\MeinaV11.safetensors
  • Download Lora models and put them in data\share\Lora. Note that you have to create this directory.
  • Download VAE models and put them in data\share\VAE. Note that you have to create this directory.
  • Download motion module models and put them in data\models\motion-module. Links can be found here:
  • Download embeddings and put them in data\embeddings.


  • Use a text editor to create a file called Meina.json and save it under config\prompts

  • Open up a command prompt and change directory to animatediff-cli-prompt-travel.
  • Activate the venv.
  • Type the following to run it.
    animatediff generate -c config\prompts\Meina.json -W 512 -H 640 -L 128 -C 16
  • When it’s done, the generated video and images are in output folder. It takes about 16 minutes for a Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti.
  • Output


  • Not all the Stable Diffusion models and Lora models work with animatediff. You have to try them to find the best models for you. I have good results with the following models:
  • You can follow my other post to upscale the video and increase the frame rate.
