A Data-Driven Light Scattering Model for Hair

Leonid Pekelis, Christophe Hery, Ryusuke Villemin, Junyi Ling
May 2015

We present an implementation of the [Marschner et al. 2003] model for importance sampling light reflected from hair. The implemen- tation makes use of a version of Adaptive Importance Sampling (AIS), specialized to fit easily sampled distributions to BCSDFs. Our model is novel among importance sampling implementations in that it ... more

Geometry into Shading

Christophe Hery, Michael Kass, Junyi Ling
October 2014

Sometimes, when 3D CG objects are viewed from a distance, a great deal of geometry can end up inside a single pixel. When this happens, full-sized facets, or pixels in a displacement map should play the role of traditional micro-facets. Here we describe how to alter traditional shading calculations to ... more
