Abstract: With increasing demands of 3D contents, conversion of many existing two-dimensional contents to three-dimensional contents has gained wide interest in 3D image processing. It is important to estimate the relative depth map in a single view image for the 2D-To-3D conversion technique The three-dimensional (3D) displays required the depth information which is unavailable in the conventional 2D content. Recent advances in 3D have increased the importance of stereoscopic content creation and processing. Therefore, converting existing 2D contents into 3D contents is very important for growing 3D market. The most difficult task in 2D-to-3D conversion is estimating depth map from a single-view image.

Keywords: 2D-to-3D conversion, two-dimensional contents, single-view image.
