We estimated the dependence of the perceived depth on luminance ratio by increasing the distance between the front and rear planes of a depth-fused 3-D (DFD) display. When the distance is great, the perceived depth has the tendency of nonlinear dependence on luminance ratio, which is very different from the almost linear dependence in a short-distance conventional DFD display. In a long-distance DFD display, the perceived depth is split to near the front plane at 0-40% of the rear luminance, near the rear plane at 70-100%, and the midpoint of the front and rear planes at 40-60%. Thus, the luminance-ratio dependence of perceived depth changes widely with the distance.
