The good folks at Adobe are busy cooking up some experimental new video software for manipulating, compositing and interacting with digital video. Photographers might want to think of the new software as one part Vanishing Point, one part photo merge and two parts magic.
The compositing feature shown at the end of the movie raises some obvious questions for newspaper use and the software seems to be at least a couple years out.
What I find partiularly intriguing about the video are the automatically-generated edge points. This could evolve into new ways of selectively adjusting video, extrapolating three, dimensions from video to minimize depth of field or as a new method of masking still photos.
