dc.description.abstractStereoscopic 3D (S3D) media is pervasive in film, photography and art. However, working with S3D media poses a number of interesting challenges arising from capture and editing. In this thesis we address several of these challenges. In particular, we address disparity adjustment and present a layer-based method that can reduce disparity without distorting the scene. Our method was successfully used to repair several images for the 2014 documentary “Soldiers’ Stories” directed by Jonathan Kitzen. We then explore consistent and comfortable methods for stylizing stereo images. Our approach uses a modified version of the layer-based technique used for disparity adjustment and can be used with a variety of stylization filters, including those in Adobe Photoshop. We also present a disparity-aware painterly rendering algorithm. A user study concluded that our layer-based stylization method produced S3D images that were more comfortable than previous methods. Finally, we address S3D line drawing from S3D photographs. Line drawing is a common art style that our layer-based method is not able to reproduce. To improve the depth perception of our line drawings we optionally add stylized shading. An expert survey concluded that our results were comfortable and reproduced a sense of depth.en
