Skin Microstructure Deformation With Displacement Map Convolution

Synthesizing the effects of skin microstructure deformation by anisotropically filtering a high-resolution displacement map to match normal distribution changes in measured skin samples. Facial animation made with the technique shows more realistic and expressive skin under deformation and strain.

Two-Shot SVBRDF Capture for Stationary Materials

A handheld, mobile-phone-based, two-shot appearance acquisition system that reconstructs a very rich reflectance representation for texture-like real-world materials. The final result is a photorealistic SVBRDF that describes spatially varying, diffuse, and specular anisotropic reflectance over a detailed normal map.

Image-Based Relighting Using Neural Networks

This paper presents a neural-network regression method for relighting real-world scenes from a small number of images. In contrast to most image-based relighting techniques, this regression-based approach allows input images to be captured under arbitrary illumination conditions, including light sources moved freely by hand.
