Paper Abstract

Stereoscopic filming is roughly divided into two types: toed-in and parallel camera configurations. Both types have disadvantages: toed-in cameras cause keystone distortions, and parallel cameras cause image loss by shifting. In addition, it is difficult for inexperienced creators to understand the optimal camera settings and post-processing procedures, such as cross points and inter-camera distance, in both types. These factors hinder the creation of stereoscopic images. Therefore, the authors focused on improving usability in stereoscopic filming, constructed an experimental camera system, and examined semi-automatic camera configuration function in terms of viewing safety.
