Synthesized 3-D CGH of a general three dimensional object is obtained by using a new 3-D coordinates transformation technique. A CCD camera is used to record several projected images of the 3-D object from different viewing angles. The recorded data are numerically calculated and processed to yield two-dimensional complex functions, which are then encoded fer the final synthesized 3-D CGH.
