A texture-based depth interpolation system was proposed. It can interpolate two depth keyframes, by combining depth estimation, error compensation, noise elimination, and forward/backward depth merging. Results confirmed that errors in the estimated depth are few. The bi-directional propagation can overcome the occlusion of objects and handle the zoom in/out circumstance.
