Tamy Boubekeur (Chief Scientist) and Sébastien Deguy (Founder and CEO) Allegorithmic will talk about Procedural Mesostructure Synthesis for Digital Materials.
Digital materials coming in the form of spatially-varying bidirectional reflectance distribution functions (SVBRDF) can be efficiently represented, for a large set of applications, using a collection of 2D maps storing the standard SVBRDF channels. While the reflectance properties are captured by specific microstructure parameters – such as the roughness which drives the spread of the normal distribution function hidden in a classical microfacet reflectance model – geometric mesostructures are typically expressed using a displacement map. In this paper, we discuss how a directed acyclic graph (DAG) of processing nodes offer a powerful abstraction to design such displacement maps and present a procedural modeling workflow for mesostructure creation.
