  • Patent number: 10298905
    Abstract: An apparatus receives an image and an associated depth map comprising input depth values. A contour detector (405) detects contours in the image. A model processor (407) generates a contour depth model for a contour by fitting a depth model to input depth values for the contour. A depth value determiner (409) determines a depth model depth value for at least a one pixel of the contour from the contour depth model. The depth model may e.g. correspond to a single depth value which e.g. may be set to a maximum input depth value. A modifier (411) generates a modified depth map from the associated depth map by modifying depth values of the associated depth map. This includes generating a modified depth value for a pixel in the modified depth map in response to the depth model depth value. The depth model depth value may e.g. replace the input depth value for the pixel.
