Stereoscopic 3D is a rapidly emerging technology in movies and entertainment; however, various difficulties challenge developers and researchers especially in order to ensure comfortable stereoscopic experience. Distortion on stereoscopic vision appears when stereo parameters are specified in the beginning and is not adapted in time; therefore, optimum parameters are not used leading to problems that mostly arise in interactive applications, where object or viewer motion is unpredictable. Most of works focus on optimizing these parameters in the post production phase which also limits the usage of proposed models. Our work is motivated by the need of an automatic camera control mechanism that computes stereo parameters alike camera convergence and interaxial separation by mapping any given 3D scene into stereoscopic comfort zone. Our model proposes to create tolerable binocular disparities for any given virtual content.
