    A 3D scene is synthesized combining multiple optically recorded digital holograms of different objects. The novel idea consists of compositing moving 3D objects in a dynamic 3D scene using a process that is analogous to stop-motion video. However in this case the movie has the exciting attribute that it can be displayed and observed in 3D. We show that 3D dynamic scenes can be projected as an alternative to complicated and heavy computations needed to generate realistic-looking computer generated holograms. The key tool for creating the dynamic action is based on a new concept that consists of a spatial, adaptive transformation of digital holograms of real-world objects allowing full control in the manipulation of the object’s position and size in a 3D volume with very high depth-of-focus. A pilot experiment to evaluate how viewers perceive depth in a conventional single-view display of the dynamic 3D scene has been performed.
