  • Publication number: 20220172447
    Abstract: The present technology relates to an image processing device, an image processing method, and a program that enable easy editing of a free viewpoint image. The present technology displays: a 3D stroboscopic image obtained by imaging, with a virtual camera, a stroboscopic model in which 3D models of an object at a plurality of times generated from a plurality of viewpoint images imaged from a plurality of viewpoints are arranged in a three-dimensional space; and an editing parameter to be edited in editing of a free viewpoint image obtained by imaging, with the virtual camera, free viewpoint data generated from the plurality of viewpoint images, the editing parameter being linked with the 3D stroboscopic image. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a case of editing a free viewpoint image.
