Material considerations concerning mosaics presented at the Radiance Workshop 2012 are the starting point of a new research project at CC EASE regarding the modeling of complex materials for light redirection and the use of goniophotometric measurements in the development of such models.


Especially in cultural heritage projects some materials emerge where an appropriate visual representation and exact photometric properties are equally important. BSDF measurements should therefore be augmented with proxies or mixtures.


The presentation shows a variety of such complex materials and strategies for modeling them in radiance. We anticipate a stimulating discussion.
