Abstract
In this paper, we describe a method to create an approximate ray-traced stereoscopic pair by transforming a fully ray-traced left-eye view into an inferred right-eye view. Performance results from evaluating several random scenes are given which indicate that the second view in a stereoscopic image can be computed with as little as 5% of the effort required to fully ray-trace the first view. We also discuss worst case performance of our algorithm, and demonstrate that our technique will always be at least as efficient as two passes of a standard ray-tracer.
