DIBR with Hierarchical Hole Filing (HHF)

Hierarchical Hole Filing (HHF) uses a pyramid like approach to estimate the hole pixels from lower resolution estimates of the 3D wrapped image. The lower resolution estimates involves a pseudo zero canceling plus Gaussian filtering of the wrapped image. Then starting backwards from the lowest resolution hole-free estimate in the pyramid, we interpolate and use the pixel values to fill in the hole in the higher up resolution image. The procedure is repeated until the estimated image is hole-free.
