THREE-DIMENSIONAL ENVIRONMENT CREATED FROM VIDEO
The claimed subject matter provides a system and/or a method that facilitates constructing a three-dimensional (3D) virtual environment from two-dimensional (2D) content. A 3D virtual environment can enable a 3D exploration of a 3D image constructed from a collection of two or more 2D images, the 3D image is constructed by combining the two or more 2D images based upon a respective image perspective. The two or more 2D images can be provided by a video portion. An aggregator can reduce the number of frames in the video portion, construct a 3D image based upon key point features in the reduced number of frames and align the key point features geometrically in three dimensions.
