As there is a growing tendency to represent the 3D content instead of the 2D content, researches for the stereoscopic image and video are under way in a variety of fields such as acquisition, compression, transmission, authoring and display. And 3D stereoscopic techniques can be adapted in many areas; entertainment, education, medical care, virtual reality, and so on[1]. A stereoscopic image can provide stereopsis by using a left image and a right image as a pair while a monoscopic image cannot provide it. Thus stereoscopic images are more realistic than monoscopic images. The authoring technique for stereoscopic contents has given emphasis to virtual stereoscopic contents on the whole. Thus the authoring technique for stereoscopic pictures is insufficient now. When we compose a stereo scene with stereoscopic pictures, stereoscopic contents may not match the stereo scene because each stereoscopic picture can be acquired by setting up cameras in the different condition. To solve this problem, stereoscopic pictures have been modified manually till now. It is a laborious work and will be spent much time. Also it is difficult for a user who does not have an elementary knowledge of stereopsis. In this paper, we propose the synthesis method to compose a natural stereo scene with a stereoscopic still picture and moving pictures. Experimental results show that the proposed method in this paper allows a user to synthesize stereoscopic contents easily and compose a stereo scene conveniently.
