scattering, phase function, measurement, rendering
Acquiring accurate scattering properties is important for rendering translucent materials. In particular, the phase function, which determines the distribution of scattering directions, plays a significant role in the appearance of a material. We propose a distinctive scattering theory that approximates the effect of single scattering to acquire the non-parametric phase function from a single image. Furthermore, in various experiments, we measured the phase functions from several real diluted media and rendered images of these materials to evaluate the effectiveness of our theory.
