Abstract: Based on the idea of metaverse, this paper adopts an aesthetic way of visual expression to appreciate art, that is, transforming two-dimensional (2D) image to three-dimensional (3D) image. During the process of 2D to 3D technology, a new block distance calculation method is proposed. Based on the relationship between gradient and position, the block distance method is improved, and a more suitable matching block is selected in the search area to fill the target block with pixels. Moreover, due to the difficulty of large area holes caused by occlusion in virtual viewpoint images, this paper proposes an improved hole filling method. Experimental results show that compared with the existing methods, the image quality of virtual viewpoint rendering was improved greatly and Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) and Structural Similarity Index Measurement (SSIM) of the proposed hole filling method were better that those of baselines.

Keywords: metaverse; art appreciation; visual expression; 3D; hole filling.
