Project Name Fixed Cost Stereoscopic Rendering
Team Members Jason Kimball, Vid Petrovic, Falko Kuester
Project Sponsor UCI Henry Samueli School of Engineering
A red blue 3D anaglyph rendered using the fixed cost stereoscopic algorithm



This research presents a GPU based implementation of an image based rendering method for reducing the cost of stereoscopic rendering to the cost of rendering a single monoscopic image plus a smaller fixed cost. Our approach is to use the color and depth information from the rendered image of one eye to produce a reconstructed depthsprite which is rendered for the other eye. A GPU hardware accelerated technique for producing and rendering this depthsprite at rates above 60 Hz is presented. Our technique enables the real time stereoscopic display of complex and data intensive objects, which are currently constrained to monoscopic rendering technology.
