Introduction to a new AI product with a canvas interface, allowing users to create and interact with prompts and images.

The platform offers basic access similar to other AI platforms like Leonardo, MidJourney, Dolly 3, and Stable Diffusion.

Users can view and drag desired results onto the canvas, with each image displaying information about the prompt, dimensions, guidance, and seed used for generation.

The ability to adjust the scale of the view and move the canvas to engage with the images provides a unique interactive experience.

Selection tools are available for moving items around or selecting them, and holding the space bar allows for moving images for better visual assessment.

Different models can be chosen for guidance, including CRE models, uploaded models, and community models.

The platform showcases various interpretations of images, ranging from photorealistic to animated or illustrated styles.

While the quality may not match some other platforms like MidJourney or Dolly 3, the platform's real-time generation feature sets it apart.

Real-time generation allows users to see fast renders and manipulate visual elements on the fly, with changes reflected instantly in the final image.

The ability to select individual drawing elements and manipulate them in real-time provides a dynamic and interactive creative experience.

Users can change colors and make adjustments to the entire canvas, with real-time renders updating to reflect these changes.

The platform offers an enhance beta feature, allowing users to refine their creations further and download the enhanced files.

An external program integration feature enables users to work within familiar software like Photoshop, with CRE interpreting and adjusting the image in real-time based on the user's actions.

CRE is expected to be a valuable tool for creatives, offering a range of possibilities for exploration and creation.

The demonstration highlights the potential for users to develop their own prompts and see how the AI interprets and visualizes them.
