Awesome idea! The capturing is a bit slow, obviously. But it's pretty cool to be able to focus later. From a UX perspective: I was a bit confused that I always have to tap on the "tick" button after snapping a photo. I would expect it to always save it when I push the capture button.

@dylan36032 Yes! you're right. Auto saving feature will be added in the next version!

@gitmerge very nice! πŸ˜„

Very interesting. @gitmerge, how did you manage to emulate what I always assumed was a Lyto hardware feature with existing smartphone cameras? Is it taking multiple exposures for later manipulation, or actually capturing raw data and somehow rendering everything?

@gitmerge
@alexdbauer ya, actually capturing. But it is impossible to create full resolution image that cause of performance limitation. So we create only max but smaller images(about 750*1000 size in iphone 6) Maybe, I imagine(and very hope!!) apple readying simillar api in the future.

@gitmerge that's a fascinating approach! Excited to give it a try, though I imagine it probably won't be quite as exciting on an old iPhone 5S

@alexdbauer I want the perfect "parallel" capture!

@pallav_agarwal Hey, Pallav Agarwal. Please send me DM now~ I'll send a promo code to you! (ah, I found your comment in below! I sent it.)

@gitmerge So I tried out the app. I really like the GIF feature and thought that was an interesting touch! However I think that the GIF should be made to go in and then out of focus so that it looks looped instead of going from one focus to another and then jumping back to the original position.

Good feedback! Pallav Agarwal. Ya, In fact we initially think that exporting GIF is very optional feature in our app, it was not important. Because We thought main purpose of Live Focus is creating best 1 photo. But soon we've seen that many users really regard GIF export feature is important. First of all, Boomerang-like reverse animation effect will be added(you can immediately see it in the next version). And, your suggestion "point-to-point frame-jumping animation" is very welcome. 😍 We strongly consider to modify that!!πŸ‘Œ Additionally, We tell you that the result of the Full Range LF mode is more smoother than Multi Point Mode maybe you know. Because Multi Point Mode have not serial focused positions. So If you want to make GIF, We're recommend to use Full Range Mode instead of that mode until add new enhanced GIF exporting feature. Very thanks for your feedback! If you have additional opinion, please message any time.
