Statistical Characterization of Surface Reflectance
(The Eurographics Association, 2014)
The classification of surface reflectance functions as diffuse, specular, and glossy has been introduced by Heckbert more than two decades ago. Many rendering algorithms are dependent on such a classification, as different ...
On the Advancement of BTF Measurement on Site
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)
We present our progress to the on-site measurement of the spatially varying surface reflectance represented by bidirectional texture function (BTF). This requires a physical realization of a portable instrument that can ...
Temporally Coherent Adaptive Sampling for Imperfect Shadow Maps
(The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
We propose a new adaptive algorithm for determining virtual point lights (VPL) in the scope of real-time instant radiosity methods, which use a limited number of VPLs. The proposed method is based on Metropolis-Hastings ...
Practical Experiences with Using Autocollimator for Surface Reflectance Measurement
(The Eurographics Association, 2016)
We present our experiences with using an autocollimator to set up the surface reflectance measurement for both BRDF and BTF. Assuming the measured material appearance is put on a locally flat surface, the autocollimator ...
