Abstract

Rendering is the process of producing a synthetic image using a computer. The best known application is animation and simulation of scenes for the entertainment industry but recognition of its value as a tool for product design in other areas is increasing. Here we report the results of our work to produce visually and radiometrically accurate renderings of selected appearance attributes of sample coated surfaces.
