Description

Depth Adjustment Device and Depth Adjustment Method {DEPTH ADJUSTING DEVICE AND DEPTH ADJUSTING METHOD}

The present invention relates to a three-dimensional control device and a three-dimensional control method for adjusting the depth value to enable the three-dimensional control in the three-dimensional stereoscopic image.

3D stereoscopic imaging technology has various applications such as information communication, broadcasting, medical, education and training, military, game, animation, virtual reality, CAD, and industrial technology. The three-dimensional sense perceived by a person includes the degree of change in the thickness of the lens depending on the position of the object to be observed, the difference in angle between the two eyes and the object, the difference in the position and shape of the left and right eyes, and the parallax caused by the movement of the object. It is a complex action.

Among them, binocular disparity, which is caused by two or more human eyes or two or more cameras positioned in a horizontal direction, is the most important factor of stereoscopic feeling. The difference in the angle of the object due to binocular disparity has different images in each retina or each camera, and when the difference between these two images is transmitted to the brain, the brain accurately fuses the two pieces of information together to produce the original 3D stereoscopic image. I can feel it.

The 3D stereoscopic image is composed of a left eye image recognized by the left eye and a right eye image recognized by the right eye. The 3D display apparatus expresses a stereoscopic sense of an image by using a parallax between a left eye image and a right eye image.

However, the three-dimensional effect is formed by the difference between the depth value of the left eye image and the right eye image, and even if the same depth value difference, a large difference occurs in the three-dimensional effect according to the display screen size or the density of the object. In this case, once the stereoscopic image is made, the depth value of the left eye image or the right eye image cannot be adjusted from a non-expert user's point of view, and there is a problem of newly photographing the 3D photorealistic image or generating the 3D converted image.

For example, displaying a stereoscopic image optimized for a large-screen theater screen on a mobile phone screen of 4 inches or less feels the deterioration of the stereoscopic effect, and it is impossible for the user to immediately adjust the stereoscopic effect and to display the stereoscopic image for the small screen on the content provider side. There is a problem that must be made separately.

In addition, when a 3D image captured by two or more cameras is deficient in stereoscopic effect on an editing device or a display device, it is necessary to discard the existing 3D stereoscopic image and newly shoot a stereoscopic image having an increased depth value. There is a very difficult problem to regain.

Therefore, even a non-expert should develop a three-dimensional control device or a three-dimensional control method of controlling the three-dimensional effect immediately by simply setting a new depth value in the editing device or display device.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention has been made in view of the above-described necessity, and an object of the present invention is to provide a three-dimensional image adjusting device and a method of controlling a three-dimensional image, in which a three-dimensional image is increased or decreased by only a simple operation of inputting a new depth value for a left-eye image or a right-eye image constituting the three-dimensional image. .

In one embodiment, the three-dimensional control device of the present invention, the display unit for displaying a stereoscopic image consisting of a left eye image and a right eye image; One of the left eye image and the right eye image is selected as a first image as a reference image, and the other is selected as a second image, and a specific pixel of the second image is compared by comparing the first image and the second image. After calculating a first depth value of a specific object, a third image having a second depth value of which the first depth value is adjusted is generated, and a new stereoscopic image composed of the first image and the third image is displayed. A control unit to be displayed on the unit; It includes.

In one embodiment, the three-dimensional image adjusting apparatus of the present invention, to display a three-dimensional image consisting of a left eye image and a right eye image, and when a three-dimensional increase and decrease command is input, the depth value of each pixel for any one of the left eye image and the right eye image or The depth value of each object is newly calculated to display a new stereoscopic image corresponding to the stereoscopic increase / decrease command.

In one embodiment, according to the method of adjusting the three-dimensional effect of the present invention, by comparing the first image and the second image to recognize each object, calculates the depth value for each object, the first image and the second image If the 3D image is required to be adjusted in the 3D image composed of the 3D image, a new 3D image having a new depth value input from the depth adjustment menu is newly generated and the new 3D image is made by the new 3D image composed of the first image and the third image. Express

In one embodiment, according to the stereoscopic 3D control method of the present invention, the first image and the second image selected from the left eye image or the right eye image are obtained respectively, and the depth value 0 means the same position in the left eye image and the right eye image. Recognizing a pixel as a reference point for adjusting the depth value, generating a third image in which the depth value of the reference point is maintained at 0 and adjusting a depth value of a pixel corresponding to a near or far distance from the reference point, and generating the third image. And a new stereoscopic image composed of the third image.

In one embodiment, according to the method of adjusting the stereoscopic effect of the present invention, the first image and the second image selected from the left eye image or the right eye image are respectively obtained, and a pixel having a depth value within the threshold is used as a reference point for the depth value adjustment. Recognize and maintain a depth value of the reference point as it is, and generates a third image by adjusting the depth value of the pixel corresponding to the near or far distance than the reference point, and a new stereoscopic image composed of the first image and the third image Display.

In one embodiment, according to the stereoscopic 3D control method of the present invention, the first pixel and the first pixel of the first image, the characteristic value of each pixel in the first image and the second characteristic is substantially matched; And recognize the second pixel of the second image as a pixel belonging to the same object as the same pixel having a different depth value, calculating a difference between depth values of the second pixel with respect to the first pixel, and calculating the difference with respect to the first image. A depth value for each object of the second image is calculated, a third image having a change in the depth value for each object of the second image is generated, and a new stereoscopic image composed of the first image and the third image is displayed. .

According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, if the characteristic value of the first pixel belonging to the first image and the characteristic value of the second pixel belonging to the second image substantially coincide with each other, the first pixel and the first The second pixel is a pixel belonging to the same object and is recognized as the same pixel spaced in the horizontal direction by a first depth value, and the third pixel in which the second pixel is moved to have a second depth value multiplied by a three-dimensional increase rate. A pixel is calculated and the first pixel and the third pixel are combined to display a new stereoscopic image.

In one embodiment, according to the three-dimensional control method of the present invention, when the three-dimensional increase command is received, the object located closer to the nearer than the reference object is moved in the near direction to the right, the farther object is farther left than the reference object Direction is moved, and when a 3D reduction command is received, an object located closer to the reference object is moved to the left direction, which is a position closer to the reference object, and an object located farther than the reference object is closer to the reference object. Is moved in the right direction.

The present invention does not need to take images of different depth values in the camera due diligence step, and an apparatus and method for automatically generating a 3D image having a desired depth value by converting the source image only when the source image is given regardless of whether 2D or 3D is taken. To provide.

On the other hand, when the 3D effect is unnatural, a new 3D image may be generated by a simple operation of increasing or decreasing the depth value in the depth value adjustment menu. For example, if a left eye image and a right eye image, which are suited for a large screen for a theater, are played as they are on a portable smart device having a small screen, the stereoscopic effect is remarkably degraded. At this time, if you run the app application running on the portable smart device, select the three-dimensional increase menu, and then enter the desired three-dimensional increase rate has the advantage that the new three-dimensional image is simply reproduced in spite of the instruction of the non-expert.

FIG. 1 illustrates a virtual embodiment for comparing the present invention, in which a plurality of cameras photographing a stereoscopic image obtains a plurality of right eye images having different depth values with respect to the left eye image, and adjusts the stereoscopic feeling.

Referring to FIG. 1, a first camera 11 photographing a first image 21, a second camera 12 spaced apart from the first camera 11 by a first distance, and the first camera 11. A third camera 13 spaced apart from each other by a second separation distance is provided. The second camera 12 captures a first image 21 and a second image 22 having a difference in depth value for each object, and the third camera 13 also takes a different depth value from the second image 22. The third image 23 having the image is taken.

The first image 21 photographed by the first camera 11 becomes a left eye image, and the second image 22 photographed by the second camera 12 corresponds to each object with respect to the first image 21. The right image is spaced apart by the depth value, and the third image 23 captured by the third camera 13 is another right image in which each object is spaced apart by the second depth value with respect to the first image 21. .

The left eye image or the right eye image photographed by each camera is stored as a stereoscopic image through image correction operations including noise removal or color correction, for example. In the stereoscopic images stored in the recording medium, the stereoscopic image proportional to the first depth value is displayed as the left eye image, and the second image 22 having the first depth value difference is displayed as the right eye image. When expressing a three-dimensional effect proportional to the second depth value, the first image 21 is shown as a left eye image, and the third image 23 is shown as a right eye image.

As described above, when a plurality of cameras are installed and a plurality of images having various depth value differences are photographed and a desired right eye image is selected, a three-dimensional image editor may express various three-dimensional feelings. However, according to such an embodiment, a plurality of images must be photographed to have various depth values, and for this purpose, a large number of cameras must be installed at the photographing site, and the amount of image editing work is complicated and complicated. Above all, if the depth value of the preceding picture and the depth value of the following picture are abruptly changed in the continuous scenes in time, the image quality of the stereoscopic image may be unnatural and the pain or dizziness may be caused by the sudden change in the stereoscopic sense.

Compared with the above-described comparative embodiment, the present invention does not need to photograph images having different depth values in the camera-realization step, and converts the three-dimensional image of the desired depth value if only the source image is given regardless of whether 2D or 3D is photographed. Provided are an apparatus and method for automatically generating. On the other hand, when the 3D effect is unnatural, a new 3D image may be generated by a simple operation of increasing or decreasing the depth value in the depth value adjustment menu.

Hereinafter, with reference to the accompanying drawings will be described an embodiment according to the present invention in more detail. The sizes and shapes of the components shown in the drawings may be exaggerated for clarity and convenience. In addition, terms defined in consideration of the configuration and operation of the present invention may be changed according to the intention or custom of the user, the operator. Definitions of these terms should be based on the content of this specification.

2 to 4 show an embodiment of the present invention. 2 illustrates, for example, a left eye image as a first image 100a as a reference. 3 illustrates a second image 100b which is a right eye image in which a specific object is spaced apart by a first depth value L1 compared to the first image 100a of FIG. 2. 4 illustrates the third image 100c in which the near object 102 is adjusted closer and the far object 103 is adjusted farther than the second image 100b of FIG. 3. The stereoscopic effect of the stereoscopic image of FIGS. 2 and 4 is increased in proportion to the depth value increase / decrease rather than the stereoscopic sense of the stereoscopic image of FIGS. 2 and 3.

According to the present invention, each object is distinguished and recognized in the left eye image or the right eye image. For example, when the left eye image of FIG. 2 is set as the first image 100a, a car object that is the reference object 101 of the first image 100a, and a short distance object that is recognized as being further ahead of the car object ( The eagle object 102 is distinguished from the horizon object, which is the far object 103 that is recognized as being farther behind the vehicle.

Identification of each object is performed by a control unit and is achieved by manual teaching or edge detecting. Manual teaching (manual teaching) is by the movement of the cursor or the operation of the input device, including the mouse / keyboard. Edge detecting automatically calculates the boundary of each object or the polygon or closed curve connecting the boundary points by calculating the trend of the characteristic value of each pixel.

As an example, if a mouse click or keyboard input occurs after the cursor is moved to the boundary points 110a, 110b, 110c, 110d, 110e, 110f, 110g, and 110h of the horizon object, the boundary points 110a, 110b, 110c, 110d, Pixel coordinates of 110e, 110f, 110g, and 110h are input to the controller, and the controller recognizes a specific object (for example, a horizon object) through recognition of boundary points 110a, 110b, 110c, 110d, 110e, 110f, 110g, and 110h. Recognize.

In an embodiment, the feature value for each pixel may include at least one of a contrast value for each pixel, an RGB value for each pixel, a saturation value for each pixel, and a luminance value for each pixel.

In one embodiment, the control unit reads the characteristic value of each pixel of the first image 100a and automatically recognizes a position where a sudden change in the characteristic value of each pixel occurs as a boundary point of a specific object, and based on the recognition of the boundary point Each object including the object 101, the near object 102, and the far object 103 is distinguished and recognized.

Referring to FIG. 2, the controller calculates a feature value for each pixel in the first image 100a and observes a change in the feature value for each pixel to observe a change in the boundary value of the horizon object, which is the remote object 103, and the reference object 101. The boundary point of the car object and the boundary point of the eagle object which is the near object 102 are recognized.

The controller recognizes the inner region of the polygon or closed curve connecting the boundary points as an independent object. For example, the inner region of the polygon or closed curve connecting the boundary points of the reference object 101 is recognized as a car object, which is the reference object 101, and the inner region of the polygon or closed curve connecting the boundary points of the horizon object is a remote object ( 103 is recognized as a horizon object.

Next, the controller compares the first image 100a of FIG. 2 and the second image 100b of FIG. 3 to calculate a depth value for each object. That is, when adjustment of the stereoscopic effect is required in the previous stereoscopic image composed of the first image 100a and the second image 100b, the controller generates a new third image 100c and generates the first image 100a and the second image. A new stereoscopic feeling is expressed by the new stereoscopic image composed of the third image 100c. The third image 100c is regenerated to have the new depth value selected in the depth value adjustment menu.

2 to 4, the reference object 101 to which the reference point 120 of the depth value control belongs, the reference object 120 or the near object 102 that is recognized as being located closer than the reference object 101, A far object 103 is shown that is recognized as being farther than the reference point 120 or the reference object 101. The reference object 101 is a car object, the near object 102 is an eagle object, and the far object 103 is a horizon object.

The reference point 120 of the depth value adjustment is preferably a pixel having no objection when the left eye image and the right eye image are combined in the brain, and are located where the gaze is most concentrated.

In one embodiment, the reference point 120 of the depth adjustment is preferably selected as a pixel having a depth value of zero. A pixel having a depth value of 0 means the same position in the left eye image and the right eye image. For example, a depth value 3 may be set as a threshold and a pixel having a depth value within the threshold may be selected as the reference point 120. Accordingly, there is no eye fatigue and the three-dimensional adjustment can be made smoothly.

The controller calculates a feature value for each pixel in the first image 100a of FIG. 2 and the second image 100b of FIG. 3. The controller may include a first pixel 131 and a second pixel of the second image 100b of the first image 100a having substantially the same characteristic value for each pixel in the first image 100a and the second image 100b. Recognizing 132 as a pixel belonging to the same object, only the depth value is the same pixel. The controller calculates a difference between depth values of the second pixel 132 with respect to the first pixel 131, and calculates a depth value of each object of the second image 100b with respect to the first image 100a.

Referring to FIG. 5, when a depth value adjustment menu is selected through a display unit provided in the 3D control apparatus and a 10% 3D increase command is selected, the controller may determine a depth value of each object calculated in the second image 100b by 10. The third image 100c of FIG. 4 is obtained by increasing%. When a stereoscopic image composed of the first image 100a and the third image 100c is displayed on the display unit, a stereoscopic sense of 10% improvement is realized than the stereoscopic image composed of the first image 100a and the second image 100b.

The specific values are explained as follows.

The controller distinguishes and recognizes each object in the first image 100a or the second image 100b by a method such as manual teaching or edge detection.

The controller calculates a feature value for each pixel in the first image 100a and the second image 100b. For example, an RGB value of the first pixel 131 as a characteristic value of the first pixel 131 that is an arbitrary pixel belonging to the first image 100a, and a second pixel that is an arbitrary pixel belonging to the second image 100b. When the RGB values of the pixels 132 substantially match, the first pixel 131 of the first image 100a and the second pixel 132 of the second image 100b are the same object (eg, an eagle object). As a pixel belonging to, the same pixel spaced apart in the horizontal direction by the first depth value L1 is recognized. For example, it is assumed that the first depth value L1 is +10. That is, the first pixel 131 of the first image 100a and the second pixel 132 of the second image 100b, which are pixels corresponding to each other, are spaced apart by +10, which is the first depth value L1 in the horizontal direction. The same pixel belongs to the same object but has the same characteristic value per pixel.

When a 10% increase in depth command is input through the depth adjustment menu, a third pixel 133 having a depth value of +11, which is a second depth value L2 increased by 10% from the first depth value L1, is calculated. The specific object is moved in the horizontal direction.

In the case of an eagle object located closer than the reference object 101, a pixel having a depth value of +10 in the second image 100b is moved to the right to have a depth value of +11 in the third image 100c, and as a result, the eagle object The object is moved in a more near right direction.

In the case of a horizon object located farther than the reference object 101, a pixel having a depth value of -10 in the second image 100b is moved horizontally to have a depth value of -11 in the third image 100c and the horizon object is It is moved further to the far left side.

6 shows a depth profile of each pixel. The vertical direction represents pixel numbers and the horizontal direction represents depth values. Reference numeral C1 denotes a distribution of depth values of the first image 100a serving as the reference image. Reference numeral C2 denotes a depth value distribution of the second image 100b. Reference numeral C3 denotes a distribution of depth values of the third image 100c. The first depth value L1 of the second image 100b with respect to the specific pixel or the specific object is changed from the third image 100c to the second depth value L2.

When a depth value increase / decrease rate (for example, a 10% increase / decrease command) is input through the depth value adjustment menu, a depth value of +10 in the second image 100b is changed to a depth value of +11 in the third image 100c. A depth value of −10 in the second image 100b is changed to a depth value of −11 in the third image 100c.

That is, when a specific pixel or a specific object of the second image 100b has the first depth value L1, when a depth value increase / decrease rate is input through the depth value adjustment menu, the specific pixel or the specific object of the second image 100b The second depth value L2 obtained by adjusting the absolute value of the first depth value L1 in proportion to the depth increase / decrease rate is set as the depth value of the specific pixel or the specific object of the third image 100c.

Therefore, when the 3D increase command is input through the depth adjustment menu, the near object 102 located nearer than the reference object 101 in the first image 100a is located closer and farther than the reference object 101. The third image 100c is regenerated so that the object 103 is located farther.

When the 3D reduction command is input through the depth adjustment menu, the third image 100c is regenerated such that the near object 102 and the far object 103 are located closer to the reference object 101.

Although embodiments according to the present invention have been described above, these are merely exemplary, and it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various modifications and equivalent embodiments of the present invention are possible therefrom.

Maintaining a depth value of the reference point as it is and generating a third image in which a depth value of a pixel corresponding to a near or far distance is adjusted from the reference point;
And displaying a new stereoscopic image composed of the first image and the third image.
Computing a characteristic value for each pixel in the first image and the second image,
Recognizing the first pixel of the first image and the second pixel of the second image, the characteristic values of each pixel substantially coincide, as pixels belonging to the same object as the same pixel having only a different depth value,
Calculating a difference in depth value of the second pixel with respect to the first pixel and calculating a depth value for each object of the second image with respect to the first image,
Generating a third image in which a depth value of each object of the second image is varied;
And displaying a new stereoscopic image composed of the first image and the third image.
If the characteristic value of the first pixel belonging to the first image and the characteristic value of the second pixel belonging to the second image are substantially the same, the first pixel and the second pixel belong to the same object as the first depth value. The same pixel spaced horizontally,
A method of adjusting a 3D effect of calculating a third pixel in which the second pixel is moved to have a second depth value multiplied by a 3D increase rate by the first depth value and displaying the new 3D image by combining the first pixel and the third pixel .
When a three-dimensional increase command is received, an object located nearer than the reference object is moved in the near direction to the right, and an object located farther than the reference object is moved in the far left direction,
When a 3D reduction command is received, an object located closer to the reference object moves to the left direction, which is closer to the reference object, and an object located farther than the reference object moves to the right direction, which is closer to the reference object. How to adjust the three-dimensional effect.
