Measurements of Surface Properties for Realistic Image Synthesis

    Project: Research project

    Description

    For many years now computer scientists try to make objects look more realistic on computer displays. Realism here means to generate images on a computer which are indistinguishable from real photos. This realism is possible through the use of local
    and global illumination methods. The basis for a physically correct calculation of the
    illumination depends on the accuracy of the scene description. This means both the
    geometry as well as the description of the surfaces and light sources. Aim of this
    project is to find an accurate and efficient way to measure and define material or
    surface properies for generating realistic images. Applications are in the fields of
    architecture, lighting design and optimization, visual shape and fine arts.
