2D to 3D Conversion - Nathan Fillion as Firefly's Malcolm Reynolds

This 2d to 3d image conversion highlights the use of Depth Map Automatic Generator 9 (DMAG9) to "densify" a sparse depth map while being edge-aware.

Reference image and scribbles depths on top.

Dense depth map produced by DMAG9.

In my dmag9_input.txt, I used:
Spatial sample rate = 8
Range (color) sample rate = 16
Lambda = 0.5
Hash table size = 10000
Number of PCG (Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient) iterations = 1000
Scale parameter of Geman-McClure function = 1.41
Number of IRLS (Iteratively Reweighted Least Squares) iterations = 1

In general, if DMAG9 leaves out black pixels in the depth map, you can either slightly blur the reference image (Gaussian blur is fine) or increase the spatial sample rate.
