BRDF models are ubiquitous tools for the representation of material appearance. However, there is now an astonishingly large number of different models in practical use. Both a lack of BRDF model standardisation across implementations found in different renderers, as well as the often semantically different capabilities of various models, have grown to be a major hindrance to the interchange of production assets between different rendering systems. Current attempts to solve this problem rely on…

the effects of illumination and geometry in material perception across such a large collection of varied appearances. We connect our findings to those of the literature, discussing how previous
Neural BRDF Representation and Importance Sampling
TLDR
This work proposes a compact neural network-based representation of BRDF data that combines high-accuracy reconstruction with efficient practical rendering via built-in interpolation of reflectance, and encode BRDFs as lightweight networks, and proposes a training scheme with adaptive angular sampling.
The effect of shape and illumination on material perception
TLDR
This work collects a large-scale dataset of perceptual ratings of appearance attributes with more than 215,680 responses for 42,120 distinct combinations of material, shape, and illumination and uses the collected dataset to train a deep learning architecture for predicting perceptual attributes that correlate with human judgments.

Image-based Remapping of Material Appearance
TLDR
This work proposes a robust translation scheme which leaves BRDF evaluation to the targeted rendering system, and which expresses BRDF similarity in image space, and proposes strategies to mitigate instabilities and perform reliable parameter remappings between differing BRDF definitions.
Perceptually validated analytical BRDFs parameters remapping
TLDR
This work presents an automatic BRDF remapping technique to match the appearance of a source material model to a target, providing a faithful mapping among analytical BRDFs, even when the BRDF models are deeply different.
Image-driven navigation of analytical BRDF models
TLDR
This work defines a computational metric between BRDFs that is based on rendered images of a scene under natural illumination and proposes a user interface that allows for navigation in the remapped parameter space of a given BRDF model.
Perceptually Motivated BRDF Comparison using Single Image
TLDR
A new image‐based methodology for comparing different anisotropic BRDFs is suggested, which uses optimization techniques to generate a novel surface which has extensive coverage of incoming and outgoing light directions, while preserving its features and frequencies that are important for material appearance judgments.
Experimental analysis of BRDF models
TLDR
This work evaluates several well-known analytical models in terms of their ability to fit measured BRDFs, and shows that using a sampled microfacet distribution computed from measurements improves the fit and qualitatively reproduces the measurements.

TLDR
Recent work in the graphics community to measure the spatially- and directionally-varying reflectance and subsurface scattering of complex materials, and to develop efficient representations and analysis tools for these datasets is described.
