Good day to all!
As some of you will know @deeppppp is the leader of the DreamPower project, this project is the heart of DreamTime since it is the program in charge of analyzing and nudifying the photos that you pass to DreamTime. Today @deeppppp has opened an account in Patreon to raise the money needed to acquire better equipment for the development of the next version, more specifically the acquisition of a powerful GPU that is capable of analyzing hundreds and thousands of photos in order to improve the transformation algorithm and be able to nudify photos of people in different poses and at a higher resolution (bye 512x512).

💝 Thank you very much for your support, we are working to make this project and this technology advance.
To clarify certain doubts:
What will happen to the DreamNet Patreon? (patreon.com/deepmanyy)
This Patreon account is managed by me and covers the expenses of DreamTime and the servers for the Chat, Forum, CDN (file hosting) and other services. An exclusive Patreon for DreamPower has been created in order to accelerate development and for you to choose which project you want to give your help to.
DreamTime is not the same as DreamPower?
They are holding hands but in reality they are separate projects. DreamPower as I mentioned at the beginning is the program responsible for analyzing and nudifying the photos, it is a heavy program that can reach up to 3 GB of space and can only be used from a command line interface. DreamTime instead is a user interface that allows you to use DreamPower without having command line knowledge, just a few clicks and you have your photo ready. DreamTime depends on DreamPower to work.
Why is an expensive GPU needed?
DreamPower uses a fairly amazing technology called Deep Learning, in very short words you could say that it is the way a program/computer can learn almost by itself to do something (in this case, learn to nudify), however Deep Learning is a very slow process and that requires a very high level of processing, a GPU such as an NVIDIA TITAN RTX with 24GB of memory is recommended to work with this type of technology since it is capable of storing, analyzing and learning from hundreds of pictures.
Why not only rent a GPU of this type?
It is an alternative however it could be more expensive than buying the GPU itself. Sometimes you have to repeat the process several times and also having it at home will guarantee that we can work on a new version without additional costs.
If all this is achieved, what could I expect for DreamPower and DreamTime?
The most criticized problem since the launch of DeepNude will be solved: Only photos of dimensions 512x512, larger photos can be transformed without losing quality, with this we could also open to new functions as a better transformation into photos with different poses and even when there is more than one person.
