Observations under cross-polarized 0th and 1th spherical gradient illumination conditions (top-row) employed to estimate per-surface point diffusion parameters (center) for dipole diffusion rendering (right).

 


Abstract:

We propose a novel method for acquiring subsurface scattering parameters of heterogeneous translucent materials. We show that dense per-surfacepoint scattering parameters can be directly obtained from observations under cross-polarized spherical gradient illumination of curved surfaces. Our method is a direct method, and does not require any explicit fitting of observed scattering profiles. The validity of the developed theory is demonstrated on a variety of heterogeneous translucent objects.
