A Fully-correlated Anisotropic Micrograin BSDF Model


We introduce an improved version of the micrograin BSDF model [Lucas et al. 2023] for the rendering of anisotropic porous layers. Our approach leverages the properties of micrograins to take into account the correlation between their height and normal, as well as the correlation between the light and view directions. This allows us to derive an exact analytical expression for the Geometrical Attenuation Factor (GAF), summarizing shadowing and masking inside the porous layer. This fully-correlated GAF is then used to define appropriate mixing weights to blend the BSDFs of the porous and base layers. Furthermore, by generalizing the micrograins shape to anisotropy, combined with their fully-correlated GAF, our improved BSDF model produces effects specific to porous layers such as retro-reflection visible on dust layers at grazing angles or height and color correlation that can be found on rusty materials. Finally, we demonstrate very close matches between our BSDF model and light transport simulations realized with explicit instances of micrograins, thus validating our model.
