The very unique Lytro Light Field Camera which allows you to focus your photographs after you’ve taken, has received an update that is added Perspective Shift and Living Filters to its arsenal of features.
The new features have been added to the Lytro Desktop software, and have been developed to provide users with even more powerful focus-shifting capabilities. Check out the video after the jump to see the new features in action.
Perspective Shift enables users to change a photographs centre of perspective, and the new Living Filters are interactive image effects that allow you to customise your photographs even further. Lytro explains a little more about the new features:
“The new Perspective Shift from Lytro is fun and artistic! I’ve had a wonderful time running around with my Lytro camera to grab little scenes and bend them into this new way of seeing living photos. The idea that you can take any little scene and make it like interactive Matrix-bullet-time is really cool,” said Trey Ratcliff, renowned landscape photographer and Lytro pro-shooter team member.”
New Living Filters include:
– Carnival: Twist and distort your picture as you refocus and change perspective as if you’re in a funhouse of mirrors.
– Crayon: Add a touch of color to a monochrome version of your picture. Click to focus and add color into your scene, or change your perspective and add color back into your scene as you explore.
– Glass: Put a sheet of virtual glass into your scene. Everything in front of where you click will be unchanged, and everything behind will appear to be behind a piece of frosted glass.
– Line Art: Reduce your scene to a grayscale outline, seeing more detailed lines where you refocus.
– Mosaic: Create a tiled mosaic in the out-of-focus parts of your scene as you click or change your perspective.
– Blur+: Significantly enhance the amount of blur in the out-of-focus parts of your scene.
– Pop: Make parts of your scene pop out with extra detail and vibrancy when those areas are clicked.
– Film Noir: Add a moody and stylized black and white look to your pictures, with a little bit of extra detail and color where you click.
– 8-Track: Bring back the ’70s with this filter that adds an aged, vignetted look to your pictures. Click to un-age parts of your scene and see them come back to life, disco suit not required.
