Perspectively Correct Construction of Virtual Views

Christian Fuchs, Dietrich Paulus

Abstract

The computation of virtual camera views is a common requirement in the development of computer vision appliances. We present a method for the perspectively correct computation of configurable virtual cameras using depth data gained from stereo correspondences. It avoids unnatural warping of 3-D objects as caused by homography-based approaches. Our method is tested using different stereo datasets.
