Fabric Appearance Benchmark

In proceedings of Eurographics 2020 - Posters, The Eurographics Association, May 2020
 

Abstract

Appearance modeling is a difficult problem that still receives considerable attention from the graphics and vision communities. Though recent years have brought a growing number of high-quality material databases that have sparked new research, there is a general lack of evaluation benchmarks for performance assessment and fair comparisons between competing works. We therefore release a new dataset and pose a public challenge that will enable standardized evaluations. For this we measured 56 fabric samples with a commercial appearance scanner. We publish the resulting calibrated HDR images, along with baseline SVBRDF fits. The challenge is to recreate, under known light and view sampling, the appearance of a subset of unseen images. User submissions will be automatically evaluated and ranked by a set of standard image metrics.

This publication is part of the SVBRDF database Bonn, please also see the benchmark homepage.
