Generating 3D Thumbnails For 3D Contents
Computer Engineering Department
Creating effective thumbnails is a challenging task because finding important features and preserving the quality of the content is difficult. Additionally, as the popularity of 3D technologies is increasing, the usage area of 3D contents and the 3D content databases are expanding. However, for these contents, 2D thumbnails don't help users identify and guess the important features of the contents. In this thesis, we introduce a new thumbnail format, 3D thumbnail that helps users to understand the content of the 3D graphical scene or 3D video + depth by preserving the recognizable features and qualities. In this work, several experiments are presented which show that our proposed 3D thumbnail format is statistically (p < 0.05) better than 2D thumbnails.
