abstract (eng):

Physically correct and realistic visual appearance rendering or analysis of material surface visual properties require complex descriptive models capable of modelling material dependence on variable illumination and viewing conditions. While recent advances in computer hardware and virtual modelling are finally allowing the view and illumination dependencies of natural surface materials to be taken into account, this occurs at the expense of an immense increase in the required number of material sample measurements. The introduction of fast compression, modelling and rendering methods for visual data measurements is therefore inevitable.
