This insanely cool camera captures all the light in the field before it as well as the precise path that light takes.
That means all the light information is captured in 3D and you are actually able to refocus any part of the image in post.
Or you could arbitrarily select a section of the background and replace it with another image. That would create a green screen effect without the need for a physical green screen.
As this 3D space captured by the camera can be combined with animated or augmented reality, this new light field technology offers filmmakers an extraordinary new tool to make movies and virtual reality even more amazing.
