Time-Varying Weathering in Texture Space

Thursday, 28 July, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm, Anaheim Convention Center, Ballroom C
Session Chair: Sylvain Lefebvre, Inria

Rachele Bellini from our Pipeline team will be presenting a technical paper at this year’s SIGGRAPH Exhibition in Anaheim on July 28, 2016.

Co-written with Yanir Kleiman and Daniel Cohen-Or, this paper covers the topic of ‘Time-Varying Weathering in Texture Space’

Given a single texture image, weathering degrees at different regions of the input texture are estimated by prevalence analysis of texture patches. This information then allows graceful increase or decrease of the popularity of weathered patches, simulating the evolution of texture appearance both backward and forward in time.
