BTF Modelling Using 3D CAR Model

The bidirectional texture function (BTF) describes texture appearance variations due to varying illumination and viewing conditions. This function is acquired by large number of measurements for all possible combinations of illumination and viewing positions hence some compressed representation of these huge BTF texture data spaces is obviously inevitable. In this paper we present a novel efficient probabilistic model-based method for multispectral BTF texture compression which simultaneously allows its efficient modelling. This representation model is capable of s
