In trifocal transfer based novel view synthesis, matched pixels of both input views are projected in the novel view. The angle of view of this latest is usually narrow, i.e. the novel view is very close to input ones. In this paper we improve the method to get a large angle of view. A simplex approach is used to compute the model of the virtual views pose. This model allows the computation of the novel view at any desired angle of view. We also show that those results are very useful in micromanipulation tasks where transfer of edges is enough instead of the entire pixels of input views.
