|Title||On the benefits of a variable-resolution bidirectional scattering distribution data format|
|Year of Publication||2012|
|Authors||Andrew McNeil, Eleanor S Lee|
|Type||DOE/ CEC PIER Technical Report Deliverable|
This summary report adds context to the recent development of a new format for variable-resolution bi-directional scattering data. Specifically we discuss why a high resolution BSDF format is needed, the advantages of a variable resolution data format, and the new capabilities that stem from this development.
