Paper Abstract

A technique of three-dimensional imagery has been developed, as an extension of the Gabor wavefront reconstruction process. The image produced is essentially a reconstitution of the original scene and exhibits many of its visual characteristics: parallax between near and more distant objects, a requirement to refocus the eyes when viewing objects in different parts of the scene, and finally, a three-dimensional effect equal to that obtained by ordinary stereo photography.
