OpenMMLab Image and Video Restoration, Editing and Generation Toolbox

Project README

English | 简体中文


MMEditing is an open-source image and video editing toolbox based on PyTorch. It is a part of the OpenMMLab project. Currently, MMEditing supports:

The master branch works with PyTorch 1.5+.

Some Demos:

Major features
  • Modular design

    We decompose the editing framework into different components and one can easily construct a customized editor framework by combining different modules.

  • Support of multiple tasks in editing

    The toolbox directly supports popular and contemporary inpainting, matting, super-resolution and generation tasks.

  • State of the art

    The toolbox provides state-of-the-art methods in inpainting/matting/super-resolution/generation.

Note that MMSR has been merged into this repo, as a part of MMEditing. With elaborate designs of the new framework and careful implementations, hope MMEditing could provide better experience.

What's New

MMEditing maintains both master and 1.x branches. See more details in Branch Maintenance Plan.

💎 Stable version

0.16.0 was released in 31/10/2022:

  • VisualizationHook is deprecated. Users should use MMEditVisualizationHook instead.
  • Fix FLAVR register.
  • Fix the number of channels in RDB.

Please refer to for details and release history.

🌟 Preview of 1.x version

A brand new version of MMEditing v1.0.0rc1 was released in 24/09/2022:

  • Support all the tasks, models, metrics, and losses in MMGeneration 😍。
  • Unifies interfaces of all components based on MMEngine.
  • Refactored and more flexible architecture.

Find more new features in 1.x branch. Issues and PRs are welcome!


MMEditing depends on PyTorch and MMCV. Below are quick steps for installation.

Step 1. Install PyTorch following official instructions.

Step 2. Install MMCV with MIM.

pip3 install openmim
mim install mmcv-full

Step 3. Install MMEditing from source.

git clone
cd mmediting
pip3 install -e .

Please refer to for more detailed instruction.

We appreciate all contributions to improve MMEditing. Please refer to our contributing guidelines.


MMEditing is an open source project that is contributed by researchers and engineers from various colleges and companies. We appreciate all the contributors who implement their methods or add new features, as well as users who give valuable feedbacks. We wish that the toolbox and benchmark could serve the growing research community by providing a flexible toolkit to reimplement existing methods and develop their own new methods.

Branch Maintenance Plan

MMEditing currently has two branches, the master and 1.x branches, which go through the following three phases.

Phase Time Branch description
RC Period 2022/9/1 - 2022.12.31 Release candidate code (1.x version) will be released on 1.x branch. Default master branch is still 0.x version Master and 1.x branches iterate normally
Compatibility Period 2023/1/1 - 2023.12.31 Default master branch will be switched to 1.x branch, and 0.x branch will correspond to 0.x version We still maintain the old version 0.x, respond to user needs, but try not to introduce changes that break compatibility; master branch iterates normally
Maintenance Period From 2024/1/1 Default master branch corresponds to 1.x version and 0.x branch is 0.x version 0.x branch is in maintenance phase, no more new feature support; master branch is iterating normally
