With light-field technology from Fraunhofer IIS. Developers can integrate real life 3D objects into Virtual Reality without the need to spend the time and effort to fully draw and model them in 3D.

What is Light-Field?

A light-field is defined by the number of light rays within a specific area. If all light rays are captured within a scene, this makes it possible to generate a perspective from any position, including the reconstruction of all depth of field information.

Demo at CES 2017

In the demo at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The HTC Vive was used to view a 3D generated room that contained a real life image captured from the light-field camera then added into the 3D generated environment.


If you want to try this out, you will need to contact [Fraunhofer](https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/en/kontakt.html), and you’ll be able to integrate this with [Nuke](https://www.foundry.com/products/nuke).
