This paper describes the development of software for non-linear editing of stereoscopic 3-D movies. The purpose of the software is to simplify the creation of stereoscopic 3-D movies as well as reduce production costs. The software has the following functions. (1) Separate a field-sequential movie file into right and left movie files (2) Display right and left movie files on time base (3) Adjust horizontal and vertical disparities (4) Adjust image size and rotation (5) Correct inverted fields (6) Measure the theoretical distance of a presented image (7) Adjust movies created using the parallel recording method (8) Combine right and left movie files into a field-sequential 3-D movie file This paper reports the results of the development of the software and discusses the usefulness of the software for editing stereoscopic 3-D movies.
