The technology that powers TikTok might be a great way to get a quick peek at the kind of technologies that power DALL-E if you're still waiting to try it out and just want a quick look at what it's all about.

Although TikTok's latest filter has been around for a few days now, our attention was brought to the company's new artificial intelligence-powered text-to-image generator filter on Sunday when we found out about the new filter.

The service is called AI Greenscreen, and it allows you to create painterly images based on the words you input on your own. Moreover, the images you generate can also be used as the background of your TikTok videos, similar to a green screen.

Although a DALL-E Greenscreen filter can generate artwork by entering words, it is different from TikTok's AI Greenscreen filter. It does generate art, but it isn't anywhere close to the high-quality images you'd get with DALL-E. 

Even though TikTok's filter doesn't always produce clear images that perfectly correspond with your words, they're still fairly aesthetically pleasing, especially if you're a fan of watercolors and Impressionist-style art.

As soon as you open the TikTok app, you will see the icon with a plus sign next to it. Select this icon to continue.

The red record button can be found to the left of the Effects icon, which is just under it. It is surrounded by a yellow triangle with a black outline.

The purple AI icon can be found in the Effects menu. If you want to search for an effect, you can also select the magnifying glass icon. Use the term 'AI Greenscreen' as your search term.

The AI Greenscreen effect screen allows you to enter words into the text box below the phrase Enter a few words to generate art. It is also possible to use any of the phrases TikTok suggests in those text boxes. 

When you're doing the latter, type in your phrase and then click on the button that says Create as soon as you're finished typing.

As the image loads, it will take a few seconds for the whole thing to load, but once it does, you will be able to use it as a green screen background for your TikTok video.
