Adobe demos refocusable images

At NVIDIA’s technology conference this week, Adobe researcher Todor Georgiev demonstrated GPU-accelerated processing of plenoptic images. As Engadget puts it, “Basically, a plenoptic lens is composed of a litany of tiny “sub-lenses,” which allow those precious photons you’re capturing to be recorded from multiple perspectives.” Plenoptic image capture could open the door to easier object matting/removal (as the scene can be segmented by depth), variable perspective after capture, and more.

This brief demo takes a little while to get going, but I still think it’s interesting enough to share.
