Free Flow Session With Rachele Bellini

We had our second Freeflow session recently! Rachel Bellini from our pipeline team presented her technical paper on “Time-Varying Weathering in Texture Space” which was co-written with Yanir Kleiman and Daniel Cohen-Or.

Given a single texture image, weathering degrees at different regions of the input texture are estimated by prevalence analysis of texture patches. This information then allows graceful increase or decrease of the popularity of weathered patches, simulating the evolution of texture appearance both backward and forward in time.
