Appearance Fabrication: Challenges of Production Deployment

University College London

Abstract

Appearance fabrication aims at creating custom reflectance properties on real-world surfaces. As the inverse of appearance acquisition, it starts from a digital description of spatio-angular reflectance properties and seeks to alter physical surface to match that description. My talk provides a brief overview over the state of the art and then discusses a variety of key challenges when carrying academic proofs of concept into production environments, including the combination of multiple working principles for appearance fabrication, the challenge of countering visual artefacts of fabrication methods, the needs of mass production, and last not least of finding appearance specifications that have value in the applied context.
