SORA By OpenAI: A Text-To-Video Generator

OpenAI has garnered significant attention in the market with ChatGPT, and now they have unveiled SORA. another innovative text-to-video generator. SORA converts written user prompts into interactive real-time videos up to a minute while maintaining visual quality.

AI tools are a must in today’s time, so why lag behind others? Join Be10X AI Tools Workshop to become a 10X version of yourselves. In this blog, we will explore all about SORA, its features, limitations and many more. 


SORA is a smart text-to-video generator that can convert text into video within seconds and that too into one that resembles real-world elements. According to OpenAI SORA aims to solve problems that require real-world interactions


According to Open AI, SORA has a deep understanding of human language, enabling it to accurately interpret user prompts and generate compelling characters that express vibrant emotions. It can also create multiple shots within a single generated video that accurately portray characters and visual style.

Key Features of SORA By Open AI

Semantic Understanding- It goes beyond simple keyword matching. Instead, it comprehensively understands the meaning and context of the input text, allowing for more nuanced and accurate video generation.

Realistic Generations- It can not just create videos from text but it creates videos with elements that highly resemble real-world entities making it look real.

Object Recognition- It can identify objects mentioned in the text and incorporate them seamlessly into the generated videos. This includes both static objects and dynamic elements such as moving vehicles or animated characters.

Better Understanding- It can generate complex scenes with multiple characters, specific types of motion, and accurate details of the subject and background. It can create videos up to a minute long.

Safety and Ethics- Open AI has stated that this model will reject text input prompts that violate our usage policies, like those that request extreme violence, sexual content, hateful imagery, celebrity likeness, or the IP of others. 

Limitations of SORA

While Open AI’s SORA has some commendable capabilities, it’s important to acknowledge some of its following limitations

Accuracy- One of the limitations it faces is with accuracy as it may struggle with accurately stimulating or understanding the physics of a complex scene and may not be able to understand its cause or effect. For example, if we want to generate a video where a person is biting a cookie it will be able to do that but, may not be able to show the bite mark on the cookie in the next instance.

Spatial Confusion- Another challenge that SORA can face is that it can get confused with the spatial details of the prompt. For instance, if we give a prompt for creating a video where two people are walking, then it can get confused and may mix up the left or right, or may not be able to catch up with the event over time and get a specific camera trajectory.

Another limitation may not be one of the technical ones, but it is concerned with the safety and ethics of humans and the misuse of SORA. In the AI-driven world, we can’t overlook the fact that it can be used as a tool to harm another person’s sentiment. 

Open AI is well aware of these limitations and has addressed them in its official post and is working on continuous improvements. We can expect significant improvements in SORA.



As of now, SORA is under development at its early stages so its accessibility is highly limited and only available to “Red Teamers”. It consists of domain experts in areas like misinformation, hateful content, and bias who will work on the testing and improvement of SORA.

As per reports, Open AI will include policymakers, educators and artists around the world to understand their concerns and to identify positive use cases for this new technology. 


The unveiling of SORA has marked a significant change in the world of Content Creation using AI. With its ability to seamlessly convert user prompts to videos that resemble the real world, SORA can change the future of video generation. 

With its marketable qualities come some limitations that may concern humans and their lives. Although these limitations are being worked on, it is in the hands of humans to understand the ethical use of such technology and how it can be used for our betterment.
