Is it possible to tilt-shift the focal plane using post processing software?

Hi Antonio, 

This is possible with the technology, but we have not announced any public plans about that specific feature.

Currently only rotate is supported as a post-processing feature while still remaining a living picture, which means still being able to refocus after the fact.  Other editing features are planned, but we don't have a specific list of what will be supported in the future yet.

The addition of tilt-shift in post processing would be very exciting!

I wouldd also find shift capability useful!

This would definitely be a really neat effect to support; please feel free to suggest it in our features and feedback forum, our product managers follow what's going on there.

I'd recommend posting it here:  http://support.lytro.com/forums/20612908-living-pictures

You could maybe hold up a colored filter or two to the camera itself and create some experimental tilt shifts.

Some Lytro pictures already have Tilt shift effect working. How come it is not available on my? When are you going to apply to all piictures? When can I access it from Lytro desctop app W64?

Thanks

Hi @Dawn and @Pavel

I understood this thread to be asking about techniques such as those described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt%E2%80%93shift_photography

 

However, it sounds like you might be talking about something else. Please feel free to include links to the information you're discussing, and I'll be happy to respond further.

Ian;

You had me going.  Could a true tilt/shift function be built into the camera's firmware?  If you do that, please include some sort of level.  I am currently learning how to use a true shift lens I found used that fits on a medium format camera.  I've included one of my tries on a basic shift function. It has 16mm vertical shift. I don't think there is such a thing as an optical zoom shift lens.
