Scenario API Pricing

The Scenario API is a versatile tool for image generation and training models. It's highly adaptable, making it easy to incorporate into games or third-party software. The flexible pricing structure operates on a pay-per-use system with a monthly billing cycle and cost management options.

Pricing Structure

The API pricing is designed for flexibility and affordability and begins at a simple rate of $0.004 per image for SD1.5 model family at 30 steps and a resolution of 512x512. The cost per image varies based on resolution, number of steps, or the use of advanced features.

The cost per image includes indexing, searching, and hosting services.

Please refer to the tables below.

Images used for training

You don't pay for the image you upload for a training

Only pay for what you use

API billing occurs when generating images or training generators with the API.

The total cost (billed in dollars) depends on the number of images generated and the compute required to generate them (specifically, their step count and pixel dimensions, and additional improvements such as upscaling)

Free Tier

Gain free, hands-on experience with the Scenario platform, products, and services.

Benefit every month from the equivalent of 125 SD15 images in 30 steps 512x512 or 15 SDXL 1024x1024 images.

Billing system

After depleting your initial free API images, additional usage will be billed to your card (via Stripe) on a monthly, pay-as-you-go basis.

Scenario's billing system generates an itemized monthly statement including each feature's cost and any applied discounts. The billing cycle runs from the first to the last day of each month, and the charges are billed within the first few days of the following month.

Managing Costs and Budget

Easily visualize and manage your API usage in the "Dashboard" section of the Workspace to optimize costs and stay within user-defined budgets. You can also access your API usage with the GET /usage call.

If you have bulk image generation or higher performance requirements, we offer tailored plans designed for large-scale usage and accommodating a high volume of image generations. These plans include volume discounts, savings plans, reserved instances, and spot instances.

Example: Mobile game backend

Let's assume you are a mobile game developer building the next hit game with custom-tailored generated assets based on your users' choices. A user can create their very own props based on the style of your game.

For simplicity, let's assume your game generates 100 000 props per month. The props are generated at 30 steps on a model you trained on SD1.5 family at a 512x512 resolution.

One time costs:

Training: $5

Image generation testing: 1000 * 0.004 = $4

Monthly costs:

Image generation: 100 000 * 0.004 = $400
