Impact of Shape on Apparent Translucency Differences

Translucency is one of the major appearance attributes. Apparent translucency is impacted by various factors including object shape and geometry. Despite general proposals that object shape and geometry have a significant effect on apparent translucency, no quantification has been made so far. Quantifying and modeling the impact of geometry, as well as comprehensive understanding of the translucency perception process, are a point of not only academic, but also industrial interest with 3D printing as an example among many. We hypothesize that a presence of thin areas in the object facilitates material translucency estimation and changes in material properties have larger impact on apparent translucency of the objects with thin areas. Computergenerated images of objects with various geometry and thickness have been used for a psychophysical experiment in order to quantify apparent translucency difference between objects while varying material absorption and scattering properties. Finally, absorption and scattering difference thresholds where the human visual system starts perceiving translucency difference need to be identified and its consistency needs to be analyzed across different shapes and geometries.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
