Many 3D films use technologies of facial expression recognition. In order to use the existing technologies, a large number of markers shall be attached to a face, a camera is fixed in front of the face, and movements of the markers are calculated. However, the markers calculate only the changes in regions where the markers are attached, which makes difficult realistic recognition of facial expressions. Therefore, this study extracted a preliminary eye region in 320*240 by defining specific location values of the eye. And the final eye region was selected from the preliminary region. This study suggests an improved method of detecting an eye region, reducing errors arising from noise.
