Method and apparatus for creating a disocclusion map used for coding a three-dimensional video
It is presented a method for creating a disocclusion map used for coding a three-dimensional, 3d, video, the method comprises receiving (800) a pixel-based disocclusion map in which pixels are marked either as disoccluded or not. A block-based disocclusion map is derived (802) based on the pixel-based disocclusion map.
