Using the platform, users can create new tools for camera control and light field image processing using the Python-based tools and Android Debug Bridge (ADB) command line interface. With LPT Beta, you can generate time-lapse video as well as panoramic video that can be viewed with virtual reality headsets like Google® Cardboard® and Samsung® Gear VR®. Check out more here:.
This time-lapse video demonstrates the capabilities of Lytro Power Tools Beta. Shot at f/2, the video goes from full color to black and white and back to full color, and the focus moves from the back, left, front and right points and then reverses. Transport Living Pictures into Virtual Reality with Just 3 Steps. With the release of Lytro Desktop 4. 3, we introduced a very important new feature, 3D Side-by-Side Animations of Living Pictures. On the surface this is simply a new export option, but in reality it opens an entirely new distribution channel for Lytro ILLUM photographers. It capitalizes on the inherent benefits of light field photography, allowing you to create stereoscopic Virtual Reality (VR) content from any Living Picture.
3D Side-by-Side Animations of Living Pictures are ideal for viewing on Oculus Rift®, Samsung® Gear VR® and Google® Cardboard head mounted displays (HMD). To produce VR content from a Living Picture in Lytro Desktop, simply select the 3D Side-by-Side export option to generate an H. 264 Side-by-Side video file that can be viewed in your favorite HMD.
The actual production process is straightforward. The most important starting point is your subject matter and composition.
Be sure to create an image that has a rich three-dimensional content with close foreground subjects for a full range of refocusable depth and maximum parallax. Step 1: Animate Your Living Picture. Once you’ve captured a suitable light field image with your ILLUM, open the file in Lytro Desktop and process it into a Living Picture.
Alternatively, with our new 2. 0 firmware update the ILLUM can process Living Pictures within the camera as soon as you view them. Open your image in Lytro Desktop’s one-up view and hit play to see the default animation sequence.
It’s a great starting point, however, you may want to tweak your animated movie further, or create it from scratch using Lytro Desktop’s animation tools. Once you’re happy with the animation, move onto Step 2. Step 2: Export Your Living Picture. OSX Instructions.
From the File pull down menu, select “Export Animation as a Movie”. Select a Size, 1080p or 720p. Select “Fast” as the Render Quality. Select a Compression option. Select a Frames Per Second (FPS) option; “60” is recommended.
In the Stereo Field choose “3D Side-by-Side”. Click “Export”. Windows Instructions. From the File pull down menu, select Export > “H. 264 movie”.
Select a Size, 1080p or 720p. Select “Fast” as the Render Quality. Select a Compression option.
Select a Frames Per Second (FPS) option; “60” is recommended. In the Stereo Field choose “3D Side-by-Side”. Click “Export”. In minutes you’ll have your first VR ready 3D movie.
Of the three most popular VR HMD systems, we’ll highlight getting your 3D movie into the Samsung® Gear VR®, powered by the Samsung® Note 4®, Galaxy S6® or S6 Edge® mobile phones. Step 3: Transfer Your Living Picture to a VR HMD for Viewing. To transfer your movie file to the phone’s Micro SD card, there are a couple of options. The easiest is to plug the phone in via a USB cable to gain access to the folders on the Micro SD card. Alternatively, shut down the phone and remove the Micro SD card, or unmount the Micro SD card via the phone’s Settings. Once removed, insert the Micro SD card into a card reader on your computer. Open the Micro SD card on your computer and locate the Oculus directory.
Inside you’ll find Movies/My Video. Within the My Video folder, create a new folder and call it 3D. Copy your 3D Side-by-Side movie into that folder. Eject the Micro SD, or safely unplug the USB cable connecting your phone to the computer.
Insert the MicroSD card back into the phone, and either restart if you shut it down, or let the card remount in the phone. With the phone placed back into your Samsung® Gear VR®, navigate to Oculus Cinema and find the My Videos category. Your movie will now be available to play in full 3D Side-by-Side Animation.
Creating Living Pictures for Virtual Reality is incredibly easy with Lytro Desktop, and adds a whole new dimension to your photography. Editing, Processing and Managing Your Living Pictures Just Got Even Better. When creating the feature set for our latest update to the Lytro Desktop, we factored in feedback from a wide range of sources from ILLUM photographers and image editing professionals to light field researchers and digital content producers. Based on that feedback we identified some key areas to focus our development efforts. A common request was to make it easier to edit Living Picture Depth Maps; another was to improve integration with Adobe Photoshop and a third was to enable importing from the memory card without processing.
These significant new capabilities are included along with other features and a host of workflow improvements in this free update. The power to edit. Image editing is both a creative and critical part of every photographer’s process.
When working with traditional 2D images the tools are fairly straightforward, as are the elements you edit. Very few would dispute that the most common 2D editing tool today is Photoshop. When you add in dimensionality and depth from a light field, there are new editing possibilities to consider. Edit in Photoshop: With Lytro Desktop 4. 3 you’ll be able to export your Living Pictures as editable image stacks, with individual layers, in one step. Once you’ve edited any of the layers in Photoshop and saved the file, those changes are automatically propagated back into your Living Picture in Lytro Desktop.
The Photoshop editing process for Living Pictures used to be tedious and complicated, but now it’s achieved by simply selecting “Edit in Photoshop” which enables you to process pixels in Photoshop and retain the interactivity of your Living Picture. Note that once a Living Picture is modified in Photoshop, its editability in Lytro Desktop is limited.
From the Pictures pull down menu, select Edit in Photoshop, and Lytro Desktop will create a copy of your original raw light field image and a stack of 8 editable layers in Photoshop. Changes made to these layers will flow direct into the copy of your original image, in Lytro Desktop. Depth Map Editing: Living Pictures provide an additional option for personal creativity with their gray scale Depth Map, created from the Light-Field data.
Reasons for editing Depth Maps include touching up in areas that may have been missed, cleaning up the contours of objects in the scene, artifact removal, or fixing cloud and sky scenes. In Lytro Desktop 4. 3 we provide direct editing of Depth Maps with a set of user adjustable brushes.
Change the settings to control your brush size, softness and hardness, and opacity, plus there’s a blur brush and history brush for undo. Depth Map editing allows light field photographers to make adjustments to depth and see the results instantly without ever leaving Lytro Desktop. In the Adjust mode, simply click Edit in the Depth Map Editor to edit, clean up or tweak your depth with tools and brushes that you can quickly customize. Click on the Done button to view your changes in minutes. The freedom to import without processing your Living Pictures.
If you’ve captured a large number of images with your ILLUM and it’s time to import those into Lytro Desktop you may not want to wait for your computer to process those images. Lytro Desktop now gives you the option to choose a more convenient time to process your Living Pictures. Fast Import: We now provide you the ability to simply import images without processing so you can choose when to put your computer to work generating Living Pictures. Unprocessed images are shown with a thumbnail preview, and can be selected later for processing individually, or in bulk. Combined with the new interactive player support in the ILLUM 2. 0 firmware update, you can preview all attributes of your Living Picture in camera, including focus, depth of field, and perspective shift.
Fast Import is a very useful feature, especially when you’re in the field, filling up a SD card with content, and you don’t want your system to spend time processing all those images. Fast Import lets you choose whether to process your captures into Living Pictures as they are imported or process those imported light field captures later. This gives you the freedom to import quickly and then manage your computer’s processing cycles to fit your schedule. Capitalizing on Light Field advantages. By nature, light field images provide dimensionality not found in traditional flat 2D images.
The depth captured by your ILLUM can produce some very unique effects. Lytro Desktop 4. 3 makes it easier to bring that depth to life.
The following two new features will surface that dimensionality in ways that no other editing tool can. Side-by-Side 3D Animation: Create stereoscopic Side-by-Side 3D animations directly from the export menu. These animations are initially keyframed in Lytro Desktop. Stereoscopic Left/Right parallax views are generated automatically from the Living Picture. You’ll be able to create stereoscopic animations suitable for playback in VR goggles such as Oculus Rift, Samsung GearVR, Google Cardboard or stereo viewers. In the H264 Movie Export dialog, select 3D Side by Side in the Stereo Mode to export a full color stereoscopic animation that can be viewed in VR head mounted displays. All the keyframed animation you’ve created will be exported in the 3D stereo movie file.
Lenticular Printing: Another compelling use of Living Picture content can be found in Lenticular prints. Lytro Desktop will automatically export a series of images with the captured focus range that can be provided to a lenticular printing service for the creation of 3D lenticular prints. There’s something very compelling about seeing your Living Pictures pop to life when printed as lenticulars. Living Pictures are great for creating 3D Lenticular prints. Select the Lenticular option on Export to create a series of sliced and anti-aliased images that you can share with your service provider to produce animated Lenticular prints. Improved Workflow.
Sometimes it’s expanded functionality that makes a difference; other times it’s the subtle improvements that shine. In Lytro Desktop 4. 3 we’ve delivered both. Here are a few workflow updates that will dramatically improve how you use Lytro Desktop in your creative process. Picture States Communication: Lytro Desktop is now smarter when it encounters images that are not editable, such as images in the LFP format.
View info about those images so you know how edit-able they are. Lytro Desktop is smarter now and will provide useful information when you encounter images with limited editability. File naming consistency: For consistency, Lytro Desktop now preserves your file names when exporting or importing. This allows you keep track of your images with consistency from card, to camera, to computer. Duplicating a picture: When editing images in an outside tool such as Photoshop, creating a duplicate of that image is a smart practice.
You can experiment and edit copies of your original Living Pictures while preserving the original. Lytro Desktop now supports picture duplication. Download Lytro Desktop 4. 3 today ; it’s a significant update to our powerful cross platform editing system, and it’s free. LYTRO ILLUM 2.
0 DELIVERS MOST POWERFUL UPDATES YET. The Lytro ILLUM is more than just a camera; it’s a powerful light field image capture system and computing platform, with the ability to expand its capabilities with each firmware release. ILLUM 2. 0 is a substantial update that delivers on that promise. It includes new features, interface improvements and menu customization. ILLUM 2. 0 also introduces improved auto focus during image capture with speeds up to three times faster than before, and enables post-capture interactive aperture and perspective shift in Playback Mode.
This is the most powerful firmware update we’ve released, and is a significant step forward in the advancement of light field imaging and the ILLUM platform. Combined with the new Lytro Desktop 4. 3 and our Lytro Power Tools, we have produced a complete eco-system surrounding the capturing of light field content and creation of interactive Living Pictures. ILLUM 2. Performance. New Features.
Interactivity. ILLUM 2. 0 gives your camera a cleaner, easier to customize interface, with full screen views and improved focus range tools to assist in composition. Combined with the new features listed below, ILLUM 2. 0 opens up a new level of creative interaction and control with your camera. It’s free, and it’s available for download.
Here is a list of what’s new in ILLUM 2. 0:. Refreshed Interface.
From the Info Bar to the progress indicator ILLUM 2. 0 imparts a visually pleasing refresh to your camera’s on-screen controls. Our design team has created a look and feel update that is more than just a facelift; it’s an update that makes the ILLUM more useful in your creative process. It’s faster to respond, crisper to the eye, and easier to read in bright light conditions. The ILLUM 2. 0 interface update makes it easier to view your camera’s on screen controls. Interactive Living Picture Playback.
In our Lytro Desktop application, our pictures. lytro. com website, and in our iOS and Android mobile apps, you can view and interact with your Living Pictures. With ILLUM 2. 0 we bring advanced Lytro player functionality directly to the ILLUM playback experience, even before you import it into your computer. Simply capture your light field pictures, and then let the ILLUM create a Living Picture to preview focus and depth of field, all within the camera.
In addition to interactive refocusing, the update enables previewing Virtual Aperture with a two-finger gesture and Perspective Shift by tapping and swiping side-to-side, a feature exclusive to Light Field imagery and the ILLUM camera. ILLUM 2. 0 processes your Light Field captures into Living Pictures that support Lytro’s interactive Virtual Aperture. A clockwise two-finger gesture on the camera’s Playback Screen opens the aperture to a maximum of f1; the opposite counter clockwise gesture tightens the Virtual Aperture to f16. Living Pictures in ILLUM 2. 0 support Perspective Shift in the Playback Screen. A single finger gesture can be used to select your refocus area.
Pause slightly while touching the screen to start the Perspective Shift mode. By dragging on the Living Picture, the image’s perspective will interactively shift on screen. Redesigned Focus Aid. We’ve updated our interactive Focus Aid in the Capture Mode preview to make it easier to select the optimal refocusing range. As you change the ILLUM’s focal length or focus distance, the new preview more clearly indicates the physical distance and total range of focus from foreground to background.
With the lens set at a focal length of 52mm, the Focus Aid shows the #1 pool ball at 28cm from the camera, with a refocusing range from 23cm for closest to 37cm for the furthest refocusable point. With the same 52mm lens setting but focused on the #8 ball 99cm away, refocusing distances of 48cm for closest to infinity for furthest distance. Improved Auto Focus. With ILLUM 2. 0 we’re rolling out a faster auto focus system that crisply and precisely resolves scenes up to three times faster than in the original ILLUM.
This will enable light field photographers to compose and capture a wider array of fast paced action scenes such as wildlife, children and sports. Simply touch anywhere on the screen to select the subject or the region you want, and the ILLUM focuses in fractions of second so you can capture the perfect Living Picture. New Full Screen. View Click a single icon on-screen to hide all menus and information bars and provide a clean, uninterrupted preview of the scene you are capturing, or the captured Living Picture you want to preview or interact with.
This will help you compose your images with a full display, or preview and interact with your light field images post capture. For a full scene view in either the Capture or Playback modes, simply click the expander icon to hide menus and info data. Rearrange Menu Shortcut. With a single click on the Menu Display, you can customize and reorder Menu display items, putting your most important options up top for quicker access.

Click the Wrench icon in the main menu to customize your ILLUM. Also as a quick reminder, for optimal performance use a Class 10, 95MB/second SD card in the Lytro ILLUM. Strength in Numbers. Last week, my colleague and I attended a pre-graduation dinner at East Palo Alto Phoenix Academy (Phoenix Academy) honoring its 2015 high school graduates. We were preparing for our volunteer photo shoot at their upcoming high school graduation ceremony, and I’ll admit with some guilt that I was distracted by the fact that the Golden State Warriors were currently losing in Game 3 of the NBA finals. Just a few minutes into the post-dinner program, however, all thoughts of the game dissipated and I was totally riveted by what I heard.
Phoenix Academy is a public charter school that has had phenomenal success serving over 300 hundred students in grades 9-12. With almost 100% of its students graduating from high school and going on to college every year, their results are in stark contrast to the bleak reality of a 60% high school dropout rate in East Palo Alto.
The school is guided by the practical belief that a college degree will provide its graduates with the opportunity to earn a family-sustaining income and make a positive impact on their community. Essentially, their goal is to break the cycle of poverty by preparing their students for college, and they are succeeding. The post-dinner program was simple and understated, but there was a palpable feeling of something unique and bigger than the marking of a milestone. They were celebrating the perseverance and sacrifice of individuals, families, and an entire community.
Throughout the event, Administrators inspired the audience, speaking of kids who had touched their lives, worked harder than they thought possible, and accomplished so much. The kids then spoke, thanking their parents, their student advisors, and the school community for their support in helping change their lives. I am an outsider to this group, yet I was completely engrossed, witnessing the power of the community that underlies Phoenix Academy. After the dinner event, I confess again that I hopped on my phone and was jolted by the news that the Cleveland Cavaliers were decidedly heading towards a win and 2-1 series lead. At this point, I’d had enough of playoff basketball and was happy to turn my focus towards interviewing three graduating Seniors. They reflected on their plans for the future and their experiences at Phoenix Academy.
While each of their personal circumstances, backgrounds and stories were vastly different, there was incredible strength and consistency in their perspectives when describing the school. Juan Mendez shared his intense struggle to stay motivated and continue in school after losing three close friends, two due to gang violence. Phoenix Academy provided a real community for him when he truly needed it, and his teachers and classmates gave him hope and inspiration just to show up at school every day and not give up. His family believed in him and supported him through four years of hard work, adversity and dedication.
Not only did Juan make it through, he will be attending UC Berkeley on a full scholarship. Jailene Mendoza shared a different set of challenges, as her family struggled financially to put food on the table, and her mom battled breast cancer. Like Juan, with the unconditional care of her family, teachers and friends, she was able to beat the odds and get the grades she needed to go to college, something she wasn’t sure she could do on her own. Phoenix Academy taught her that she’s never alone in her struggles, that there is a community and extended family around her that understands what she is going through and is there to support her through it. “A lot of my friends are going through really tough situations. We all support each other,” says Jailene as she described how one of her classmates lost her sibling in her senior year, and how the whole school community came together to help her through this tragedy. They were like family, a lifeline of support and hope.
Jailene will be attending Cal State University-Stanislaus where she plans on studying social work and criminology. Juan Mendez and Jailene Mendoza. Phoenix Academy teaches and inspires perseverance. It helps its students find their confidence and potential. Cristian Jimenez sums up his experience at the school as “a second chance. ” In other schools, he struggled to get his work done and keep his grades up. His teachers and peers at Phoenix pushed him to do his homework and not give up, and he worked his way up to a 3.
8 GPA. Today he confidently proclaims: “I now know how far I can go.
” Over and over again, in the speeches I heard, kids thanked their teachers for their constant reminders to get their homework done, to never to give up, and when life hits you hardest, to put your head down and hit the books. Cristian speaks with pride of his Dad who worked two jobs to support the family. With a look of steely determination, he says that he can’t wait to look his parents in the eyes one day and thank them for everything they’ve done by showing them his college degree.
This isn’t just a wish - you can see in his eyes that it’s a promise he intends to keep. Cristian will be attending Ridley Community College in Fresno, and after 2 years of good grades, he intends to transfer to UC Santa Cruz on a full scholarship. Cristian’s advice to incoming Phoenix Academy freshmen is to “have an open mindset. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t be afraid to fail.
” He was encouraged by a teacher to try a computer science course, something he had never considered. This course opened his eyes to the possibilities and more important, he found something he truly enjoyed and was good at. As a Junior, he began attending computer hackathons in Silicon Valley. As a Hispanic student he felt out of place. This inspired him to set up similar events at Phoenix Academy, and kids who didn’t know anything about computer science got to participate and thrive in something totally new to them. Cristian Jimenez.
When I asked students what they might want to do with their lives after college, I was struck by how, without hesitation, each responded emphatically that they would be coming back to East Palo Alto to contribute to the community that shaped their own success. Jailene Mendoza wants to work with kids guiding and counseling them, citing with hope and enthusiasm that “kids deserve everything.
” Juan Mendez envisions a career in criminal justice. Cristian Jimenez sees a future for himself in technology.
All three want to work in East Palo Alto, to “help open up doors to others the same way we had doors opened up to us. ” Phoenix Academy’s mission of building a generation of students who will make a positive impact on the community is coming full circle. Over a week has passed since the Phoenix Academy pre-graduation dinner, and I’m thrilled to report that in the meantime, the Golden State Warriors have captured the NBA Championship.
They did it with an extraordinary team effort. The students at Phoenix Academy have achieved a far more meaningful and important victory than an NBA championship as they graduate from high school and move on to college, and I can’t help but think about the ultimate team effort that got them there. This dedicated community of East Palo Alto students, parents, families, teachers, and administrators are all pulling towards a common goal and proving year after year that when you put your mind to something, anything is possible. The 2015 graduating class of Phoenix Academy and their community are a shining example of the strength of teamwork of the highest order. They bring real meaning to NBA champions’ mantra: Strength in Numbers. - Omer Cohen, Chief Operating Officer. Looking for Alpha Users.
