Lytro Ceasing its Living Pictures Site
Lytro—the U.S.-based company that develops light-field cameras—is attempting to move away from consumer gear toward professional cinema hardware. The company is thus, putting an end to the site that once hosted its living pictures. These living photographs included still photographs that were taken with its cameras, which could be refocused after the fact. The putting out of this website will turn, convert the handful of pictures that are embedded on the web over the past few years, into empty frames. If one wishes to view light field images, here on, they would be able to do so in the desktop app.
The Lytro software is limited to browsing photos and grouping them into stories as well as being able to upload them directly to Lytro, which will serve them for you hope.
The company might record a limited number of active users of its service. Lytro left the consumer camera market two years ago when there proved to be little demand for its technically amazing, although ultimately gimmicky cameras.
One should not consider trusting services that offer little flexibility in how one can access and serve your own data, however, Lytro’s tech was unique in that it essentially required a special plug-in to view properly. If someone wanted to use the living pictures, it was essential that they use these plug-ins, which was a rather clumsy solution that contributed to the usability problems endemic to the whole Lytro proposition, according to critics. Now that the site has been shut down, remaining users would be required to export to ordinary stills or movie files in the desktop app.
