Stereoscopic video generation methods can produce stereoscopic content from conventional video Aimed with monoscopic cameras. In this paper, we propose a stereoscopic video generation method using motion analysis which converts motion into disparity values and considers multi-user conditions and the characteristics of the display device. The field of view and the maximum and minimum disparity values were calculated in the stereoscopic display characterization stage and were then applied to various types of 3D displays. After motion estimation, we used three cues to decide the scale factor of motion-to-disparity conversion. These cues were the magnitude of motion, camera movements and scene complexity. A subjective evaluation showed that the proposed method generated more satisfactory video sequence.
