Are there published algorithms that can convert 2D videos to 3D ones? If there are few published algorithms for this I am also interested to know how the conversion quality is.
Sure, there are many algorithms for this:
- Some works, which directly work on H264 domain, such as:
Real-Time 2D to 3D Conversion from H.264 Video Compression, Nir Shabat, Gil Shabat and Amir Averbuch http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~amir1/PS/3d.pdf
Some deep learning methods already exist on the topic: http://homes.cs.washington.edu/~jxie/pdf/deep3d.pdf (this is the review version of the paper, so I could not cite)
There are many other works which use images in many ways to create 3D:
