Free Viewpoint Video (FVV) technology is one of the emerging home entertainment mediums. FVVs give viewers the freedom to choose the viewpoint, which they want to watch the video. FVV making technologies mainly follow two approaches, virtual view synthesize and 3D model based video making. Most of the researches are using multiple video streams for 3D reconstruction and texture application on constructed 3D models. This research presents a system that makes a FVV with prebuilt 3D models and one video camera. The proposed system is less process intensive and produces a structurally accurate FVV.
