Car Paint Measurement, Rendering and Editing




Car paint and especially metallic or pearlescent paints pose serious challenges to computer graphics. This is due to their high dynamic range, their high frequent changes of reflectance both in angular and in spatial domain as well as the angular dependent color shift behaviour of pearlescent paints which is not covered by commonplace reflectance models. In the Car Paint Project we develop new compression, rendering and editing techniques for all kinds of car paints.
