Abstract

Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) has reached wide levels of adoption in consumer and professional markets. However, production of high quality S3D content is still a difficult and expensive art. Various S3D production tools and systems have been released recently to assist high quality content creation. This paper presents a number of such algorithms, tools and systems developed at Disney Research Zurich, which all make use of disparity-aware processing.

Overview

Figure 1: Depth Script Visualization for an edited movie. It shows the disparity distribution for the frames over time. This example shows a cut of multiple scenes with different depth composition. The red pixels show the depth location of the salient objects.
