This paper presents a view synthesis algorithm to generate intermediate views that allows moving a virtual camera along a 1-D path. Instead of relying on accurate depth maps, the proposed method uses a disparity map that provides a dense pixel correspondence. The algorithm is able to generate images of complex real scenes that are ready to be displayed on an autostereoscopic device. Experiments illustrate the quality of the virtual views showing a comparison between the synthetic views obtained and the real ones.
