This article defines the tunable viewing scope (TVS) of three-dimensional integral imaging (3DII) considering the human eye’s performance, which could provide a fine viewing effect without flipping or information missing. TVS required by different applications is achieved through an innovative method, attaching the reserved blank to the elemental images. The viewing comfort improvement resulting from TVS is verified by practical experiments, which indicates that it would be promising for future applications of 3DII.
