Practical Spectral Characterization of Trichromatic Cameras - Picture

Practical Spectral Characterization of Trichromatic Cameras


We present a practical approach for multispectral characterization of trichromatic cameras that works in a wide range of out-of-lab environments.

Single View Reflectance Capture Using Multiplexed Scattering and Time-of-Flight Imaging - Picture

Single View Reflectance Capture Using Multiplexed Scattering and Time-of-Flight Imaging


We demonstrate a new technique that allows a camera to rapidly acquire reflectance properties of objects in a scene from a single view point, over relatively long distances and without encircling equipment. We introduce time-of-flight reflectance estimation and demultiplex parametric bidirectional reflectance distribution functions (BRDFs) for multiple heterogeneous patches simultaneously.

Estimating Dual-scale Properties of Glossy Surfaces from Step-edge Lighting


This paper introduces a rapid appearance capture method suited for a variety of common indoor surfaces, in which a single photograph of the reflection of a step edge is used to estimate both a bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) and a statistical model for visible surface geometry, or mesostructure.

Interactive Hair Rendering and Appearance Editing under Environment Lighting - Picture

Interactive Hair Rendering and Appearance Editing under Environment Lighting


An interactive hair rendering and appearance editing method under environment maps represented by spherical radial basis function (SRBF) lights. We model hair scattering functions as 1D circular Gaussians, enabling closed-form integrals with SRBF lights computed online. Our method enables dynamic editing of scattering parameters, accounts for eccentricity, and provides interactive framerates using GPU.
