MSU – Stereoscopic 3D Film Analysis Report for Industry Professionals:

The VQMT3D (Video Quality Measurement Tool 3D) project was created to improve stereoscopic films. The aim is to help filmmakers produce high-quality 3D video by finding inexpensive ways of automatically enhancing film quality.

The second report is now out and is FREE for download to Industry Professionals only.

About the Report:

The report presents detailed (342 pages) evaluation results of 5 S3D films, which were captured with stereoscopic camera systems.

Analysed films

Examined problems:

  • Dolphin Tale (2011)
  • Drive Angry (2011)
  • The Three Musketeers (2011)
  • Hugo (2011)
  • Sanctum (2011)
  • excessive horizontal disparity
  • vertical disparity
  • color mismatch
  • sharpness mismatch

The report comprises three main parts.

  1. Thorough description of visual-discomfort potential causes while viewing stereo 3D films (see page from report)
  2. Detailed analysis of five films. Each film description consists of two parts:
    • Full per-frame analysis with charts showing metric values for each frame; (see page from report)
    • Visualizations demonstrating artifacts in frames that earned a poor rating according to our metrics (see page from report).
      Please, see example visualizations for Galapagos at the VQMT3D project page.
  3. Overall film comparison. Here go charts depicting the average metric values and distribution of these values in each film. (see page from report).
    Some charts showing overall comparison results are presented in the Overall evaluation results section on this page.
