VQMT3D Project: Report on S3D Films Quality Analysis

By MSU Graphics & Media Lab (Video Group)

The report presents detailed (246 pages) evaluation results of 5 S3D films, which were captured with stereoscopic camera systems.


Analysed films

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)
Step Up 3D (2010)
Galapagos: The Enchanted Voyage (1999)
Into the Deep (1994)

Examined problems

excessive horizontal disparity
vertical disparity
color mismatch
sharpness mismatch

The report comprises three main parts.

- Thorough description of visual-discomfort potential causes while viewing stereo 3D films

- 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

- Overall film comparison. Here go charts depicting the average metric values and distribution of these values in each film.

Some charts showing overall comparison results are presented in the Overall evaluation results section on this page.
