In this paper, we propose an algorithm to automatically
generate a novel scene along the alternated viewing
positions using the bidirectional disparity morphing. To
compute the disparity between two reference images,
we use the 2-step block based matching algorithm and
define three occluding patterns so as to smooth the
computed disparities, especially for occluded regions.
We discuss the advantages of this algorithm compared
to the commonly used schemes and show some
experimental results with real data.
