An exemplary method of reconstructing a hidden surface area in an image includes the steps of: identifying a separation pixel gap in an image resulting from a repositioning of image pixels to create a three-dimensional image; identifying pixels from one or more images; and filling the separation pixel gap with the pixels. Replacement pixels can be retrieved from a single image in a search sequence of images, or from a plurality of images in the sequence. One or more pixel fill techniques can be employed to determine replacement pixels for the separation pixel gap which best match adjacent background pixels.
