Wow, that's pretty cool. I didn't get it at first and kept clicking in the same spot,  :o

I thought it was one of those A/B click deals.

Wow, impressive find JC.
That's a really nifty thing to have, being able to shift focus after taking the shot...

why not to set overall focus as a default instead of pretending as if it was a regular camera and choosing focus points? or is it just for demonstration?

being able to shift focus after taking the shot...

lol ;D

in the meantime, you make a circle shaped focus with a gradient that is a "shape burst" to the outside and you have a perfectly good Flash file :)

That's all well and good, but when are they going to be able to magnify a still image 100X and not only maintain, but improve, the pixel quality? Just like on CSI:

oops, major necro.

Looks to me like there are selection layers for 3 different depth field examples. the selection boxes aren't all that detailed though (IE the space between the front beaker and it's support stand is included in the top layer)

T, I'm not sure what you mean.

It looks like to me the focus changes to where to click. although hard to tell when you click way back.

But if you click the little square cutouts on the front base and the base of say the fourth one back you can see the change top to bottom and front to rear.

The beaker on the left is held by a clamp, follow that clamp left to the edge of the screen and below that is a small triangle where you can see a bit of hair and shelf in the background. clicking that should take you to far focus but it keeps you at close focus. suggests to me that they forgot to exclude that area from the top layer selection box they traced around the beaker.

ah, ok, I see what you mean now.

I suppose this is just a rough example anyway.
