Direct 2D-to-3D conversion is an important task with various manual or automatic methods to satisfy the rapidly increasing requirements on stereoscopic contents. In order to construct stereoscopic images, defocus is adopted to estimate the depth from a single image and a novel layered structure is proposed in this paper. A simple searching and filtering-based method is proposed for finding the best layering result with a comparison of performances between our method and certain existing unsupervised learning methods to determine the optimum approach for automatic choice of the layered threshold, which can be used to generate a set of layered RGB images by combining with the depth map. Then the planar layered model is constructed and texture is mapped from image onto the planes. With the help of the proposed approach, a layered model can be created from a single defocused image to provide stereoscopic feelings. The proposed approach has also been expanded to construct layered stereoscopic panorama, which shows its great application potentials.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
