Abstract: We introduce stereo matching into our 3D computer graphics modelling because of its good interaction and convenience. Instead of the special standard stereo camera we evolve a network that consists of a series of the general digital cameras and web cameras and apply it to 3DCG modelling and motion capture. In this paper we propose a stereo axes correction algorithm to resolve the non-paralleled axes problem of the traditional stereo matching method and examine our new equations with experimental results.

Keywords: stereo matching; space-based computing; situated computing; image processing; disparity; numerical analysis; computer graphics; 3D modelling; rendering; digital cameras; web cameras; motion capture; stereo axes correction.
