There are different techniques to manipulate certain characteristics within mono videos to create a 3D effect when rendered and viewed. One is to display a selected frame to one eye and a different frame to the other eye so that movement of scene parts on the retina between different frames is interpreted by the viewer as visual disparity and, as a result, creates a 3D scene. Testing using StereoDisplay, a custom developed application using this technique, showed that it is effective in providing a 3D effect with some videos. Motion of the camera is required for a 3-D effect, restricting the types of videos that are suitable for this display technique. Changing the relative position and orientation of the displayed images is effective in enhancing the 3D experience. Two additional techniques to generate enhanced videos were evaluated. Calculating the Fundamental Matrix using only corresponding points from images was not always a viable technique to enable perception of 3-D. Aligning the images at the background using a 2D projective matrix proved an effective technique to reduce jitter and enhance the 3D effect.
