In this paper, digital magnification of three-dimensional (3D) imaging, using an ABMA intermediate view reconstruction (IVR) based on an adaptive block matching algorithm is proposed. The number of the elemental images obtained from a one-step pickup process can be computationally increased through the use of the proposed IVR without the need for mechanical movement and a long multistep pickup process. To show the feasibility of the proposed magnified 3D imaging system, using test images of a car, bottle, phone, and watch, it was shown that the proposed ABMA algorithm improves the peak signal to noise ratio of reconstructed intermediate images by as much as 5.16 dB on average in comparison with a conventional block and feature-based algorithm.
