Efficient compression of multi-view images and video is crucial for 3DV application. The major task of three-dimensional video (3DV) coding is to provide high quality depth data. For experimental coding purposes, the compression method used is H.264/AVC video coding standard. In this paper, Structural similarity (SSIM) based Rate distortion (RD) optimization is expressed for distortion metric. In multi-view video, the left view and the right view have their pixels with strong dependencies of
