Patent Images

1. A method for displaying a composite, three-dimensional-like image sequence, by the assembly of two or more separate image sequences, comprising:

  • a) providing a main sequence of non-computer generated, real-life images previously recorded by a recording device during a first recording time and comprising a first number of image frames;

    b) providing at least one secondary sequence of non-computer generated, real-life images having contents which are logically related to the contents of said main sequence but are not in precise visual correlation with said main sequence;

    c) selecting the positioned relationship of said at least one secondary sequence and said main sequence;

    d) processing said at least one secondary sequence to form digitized picture information representing said at least one secondary sequence;

    e) transforming said digitized picture information by computer image processing to form at least one modified secondary sequence of images in increased visual correlation with said main sequence;

    said at least one modified secondary sequence comprising a second number of image frames, and said step of transforming including altering the number of said second number of image frames if said first number of image frames does not match said second number of image frames; and

    f) displaying said main sequence and said at least one modified secondary sequence at the same time and in substantially the same positioned relationship as selected in step (c) so as to form a seemingly continuous, correlated visual transition between said main sequence and said at least one modified secondary sequence.
