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 metric.

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