    • Reducing Anisotropic BSDF Measurement to Common Practice 

      Ward, Greg; Kurt, Murat; Bonneel, Nicolas (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      We address the problem of measuring and representing reflection and transmission for anisotropic materials without relying on mathematical models or a large sample database. By eliminating assumptions of material behavior, ...
    • Statistical Characterization of Surface Reflectance 

      Havran, Vlastimil; Sbert, Mateu (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 ...
    • The Role of Visual Comparison Testing in Material Appearance Modeling 

      Meyer, Gary (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      Material appearance modeling should involve end user testing. These tests can be visual comparison experiments where decisions made with real physical samples are compared with choices done using computer graphic simulations. ...
    • ALTA: A BRDF Analysis Library 

      Belcour, Laurent; Barla, Pascal; Pacanowski, Romain (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      In this document, we introduce ALTA, a cross platform generic open-source library for Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) analysis. Among others, ALTA permits to estimate BRDF models parameters from ...
    • Scanning Gonio-Photometers for Asymmetric Acquisition of Fine-structured BSDF 

      Apian-Bennewitz, Peter (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      Results of building and running out-of-plane scanning gonio-photometers for a number of years and projects are presented. Key concepts are a fast drive system and adaptive scan pattern to sample peaks at higher angular ...
    • Linear Transport Theory and Applications to Rendering 

      Jakob, Wenzel (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      In this talk, I will give an overview of one-dimensional Linear Transport Theory, which concerns itself with the study of random scattering and absorption processes and the inference of large-scale behavior from simple ...
    • The MAM2014 Sample Set 

      Rushmeier, Holly (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      Modeling the material appearance of physical materials requires access to the materials. Sets of identical physical material models were prepared for distribution at the workshop on material appearance modeling 2014 ...
