HTC releases preview SDK to allow developers to access One M8's dual cameras

HTC launched an SDK for its Dual Lens camera. Still in the preview mode, the SDK contains two APIs: DualLense and DimensionPlus. The former supports obtaining and managing so called “bokeh” strength map mask for requested strength values; while the latter adds support for the DimensionPlus file format, and includes a DimensionPlusView class for rendering DimensionPlus photos and a DimensionPlusUtility class for exporting images in the DimensionPlus format. Each API is demonstrated with a corresponding sample code project, and the DimensionPlusDemo project does not require a HTC One M8.

Using these tools, developers will be able to build new effects for the camera and use the dual-camera set-up in their apps. We can’t wait to see what kind of cool things they [developers] can come-up with. ;)
