1 Reading Required: Shirley, Chapter 10 Shading Brian Curless CSE 557 Fall Basic 3D graphics With affine matrices, we can now transform virtual 3D obects in their local coordinate systems into a global (world) coordinate system: Pinhole camera To create an image of a virtual scene, we need to define a camera, and we need to model lighting and shading. For the camera, we use a pinhole camera. M 1 M 2 [Angel, 2011] To synthesize an image of the scene, we also need to add light sources and a viewer/camera: The image is rendered onto an image plane (usually in front of the camera). Viewing rays emanate from the center of proection (COP) at the center of the pinhole. The image of an obect point P is at the intersection of the viewing ray through P and the image plane. 3 4

2 Shading An abundance of photons Next, we ll need a model to describe how light interacts with surfaces. Such a model is called a shading model. Other names: Lighting model Light reflection model Local illumination model Reflectance model BRDF Given the camera and shading model, properly determining the right color at each pixel is extremely hard. Look around the room. Each light source has different characteristics. Trillions of photons are pouring out every second. These photons can: interact with molecules and particles in the air ( participating media ) strike a surface and be absorbed be reflected (scattered) cause fluorescence or phosphorescence. interact in a wavelength-dependent manner generally bounce around and around 5 6 Our problem Setup We re going to build up to a approximations of reality called the Phong and Blinn-Phong illumination models. They have the following characteristics: not physically correct gives a first-order approximation to physical light reflection very fast widely used In addition, we will assume local illumination, i.e., light goes: light source -> surface -> viewer. No interreflections, no shadows. Given: a point P on a surface visible through pixel p The normal N at P The lighting direction, L, and (color) intensity, I L, at P The viewing direction, V, at P The shading coefficients at P Compute the color, I, of pixel p. Assume that the direction vectors are normalized: N = L = V = 1 7 8

3 Iteration zero Iteration one The simplest thing you can do is Assign each polygon a single color: where I = k e I is the resulting intensity k e is the emissivity or intrinsic shade associated with the obect Let s make the color at least dependent on the overall quantity of light available in the scene: I = k + k I k a is the ambient reflection coefficient. e really the reflectance of ambient light ambient light is assumed to be equal in all directions I La is the ambient light intensity. This has some special-purpose uses, but not really good for drawing a scene. Physically, what is ambient light? [Note: k e is omitted in Shirley.] [Note: Shirley uses c a instead of I La.] 9 10 Wavelength dependence Diffuse reflection Really, k e, k a, and I La are functions over all wavelengths λ. Ideally, we would do the calculation on these functions. For the ambient shading equation, we would start with: I ( λ) = k ( λ) I ( λ) then we would find good RGB values to represent the spectrum I(λ). Traditionally, though, k a and I La are represented as RGB triples, and the computation is performed on each color channel separately: I a La R R R I = k I = k I G G G I = k I B B B Let s examine the ambient shading model: obects have different colors we can control the overall light intensity what happens when we turn off the lights? what happens as the light intensity increases? what happens if we change the color of the lights? So far, obects are uniformly lit. not the way things really appear in reality, light sources are localized in position or direction Diffuse, or Lambertian reflection will allow reflected intensity to vary with the direction of the light

4 Diffuse reflectors Diffuse reflectors Diffuse reflection occurs from dull, matte surfaces, like latex paint, or chalk. These diffuse or Lambertian reflectors reradiate light equally in all directions. or picture a surface with little pigment particles embedded beneath the surface (neglect reflection at the surface for the moment): Picture a rough surface with lots of tiny microfacets. The microfacets and pigments distribute light rays in all directions. Embedded pigments are responsible for the coloration of diffusely reflected light in plastics and paints. Note: the figures above are intuitive, but not strictly (physically) correct Diffuse reflectors, cont. Iteration two The reflected intensity from a diffuse surface does not depend on the direction of the viewer. The incoming light, though, does depend on the direction of the light source: The incoming energy is proportional to the diffuse reflection equations: I = k + k I e d L + k I B, giving = k + k I + k I B( ) e d L where: k d is the diffuse reflection coefficient I L is the (color) intensity of the light source N is the normal to the surface (unit vector) L is the direction to the light source (unit vector) B prevents contribution of light from below the surface: 1 if N L > 0 B = 0 if N L 0 [Note: Shirley uses c r and c l instead of k d and L.] 15 16

5 Specular reflection Specular reflection derivation Specular reflection accounts for the highlight that you see on some obects. It is particularly important for smooth, shiny surfaces, such as: metal polished stone plastics apples skin For a perfect mirror reflector, light is reflected about N, so I L if V = R I = 0 otherwise Properties: Specular reflection depends on the viewing direction V. For non-metals, the color is determined solely by the color of the light. For metals, the color may be altered (e.g., brass) For a near-perfect reflector, you might expect the highlight to fall off quickly with increasing angle φ. Also known as: rough specular reflection directional diffuse reflection glossy reflection Phong specular reflection Blinn-Phong specular reflection cos ns φ ns = 1 A common alternative for specular reflection is the Blinn-Phong model (sometimes called the modified Phong model.) We compute the vector halfway between L and V as: ns = φ One way to get this effect is to take (R V), raised to a power n s. As n s gets larger, the dropoff becomes {more,less} gradual gives a {larger,smaller} highlight simulates a {more,less} mirror-like surface Phong specular reflection is proportional to: where (x) + max(0, x). n specular B R V + s I ( ) Analogous to Phong specular reflection, we can compute the specular contribution in terms of (N H), raised to a power n s : n specular B N H + s I ( ) where, again, (x) + max(0, x)

6 Iteration three Directional lights The next update to the Blinn-Phong shading model is then: where: I = k + k I + k I B( N L) + k I B( N H) e d L s L = k ILB e + kai La + k d ( N L) + ks( N H) ns ns k s is the specular reflection coefficient n s is the specular exponent or shininess H is the unit halfway vector between L and V, where V is the viewing direction. The simplest form of lights supported by renderers are ambient, directional, and point. Spotlights are also supported often as a special form of point light. We ve seen ambient light sources, which are not really geometric. Directional light sources have a single direction and intensity associated with them. [Note: Shirley uses e, r, h, and p instead of V, R, H, and n s.] 21 Using affine notation, what is the homogeneous coordinate for a directional light? 22 Point lights Spotlights The direction of a point light sources is determined by the vector from the light position to the surface point. We can also apply a directional attenuation of a point light source, giving a spotlight effect. E - P L = E - P r = E - P Physics tells us the intensity must drop off inversely with the square of the distance: 1 f = atten r 2 Sometimes, this distance-squared dropoff is considered too harsh. A common alternative is: 1 f = atten 2 a+ br + cr with user-supplied constants for a, b, and c. Using affine notation, what is the homogeneous coordinate for a point light? A common choice for the spotlight intensity is: where ( L S) if L S cosβ f = 2 spot a + br + cr 0 otherwise L is the direction to the point light. S is the center direction of the spotlight. β is the cutoff angle for the spotlight e is the angular falloff coefficient e 23 24

7 Iteration four Choosing the parameters Since light is additive, we can handle multiple lights by taking the sum over every light. Our equation is now: I = k + k I + e ( L S ) e β ( N L ) ( N H ) I B k + k n s 2 L, d s a + b r + c r Experiment with different parameter settings. To get you started, here are a few suggestions: Try n s in the range [0,100] Try k a + k d + k s < 1 Use a small k a (~0.1) n s k d k s This is the Phong illumination model. Which quantities are spatial vectors? Metal Plastic large medium Small, color of metal Medium, color of plastic Large, color of metal Medium, white Which are RGB triples? Planet 0 varying 0 Which are scalars? BRDF The diffuse+specular parts of the Blinn-Phong illumination model are a mapping from light to viewing directions: s L + V I = ILB k d ( N L) + ksn L + V = I f ( L, V) The mapping function f r is often written in terms of incoming (light) directions ω in and outgoing (viewing) directions ω out : f ( ω, ω ) or f ( ω ω ) r L in r out This function is called the Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF). Here s a plot with ω in held constant: r in n out More sophisticated BRDF s [Cook and Torrance, 1982] Anisotropic BRDFs [Westin, Arvo, Torrance 1992] f ( ω, ω ) r in out ω in BRDF s can be quite sophisticated 27 Artistics BRDFs [Gooch] 28

8 Gouraud vs. Phong interpolation Faceted shading Now we know how to compute the color at a point on a surface using the Blinn-Phong lighting model. Assume each face has a constant normal: Does graphics hardware do this calculation at every point? Not by default... Smooth surfaces are often approximated by polygonal facets, because: Graphics hardware generally wants polygons (esp. triangles). Sometimes it easier to write ray-surface intersection algorithms for polygonal models. How do we compute the shading for such a surface? For a distant viewer and a distant light source and constant material properties over the surface, how will the color of each triangle vary? Result: faceted, not smooth, appearance Faceted shading (cont d) Gouraud interpolation To get a smoother result that is easily performed in hardware, we can do Gouraud interpolation. Here s how it works: 1. Compute normals at the vertices. 2. Shade only the vertices. 3. Interpolate the resulting vertex colors. [Williams and Siegel 1990] 31 32

9 Facted shading vs. Gouraud interpolation Gouraud interpolation artifacts Gouraud interpolation has significant limitations. 1. If the polygonal approximation is too coarse, we can miss specular highlights. 2. We will encounter Mach banding (derivative discontinuity enhanced by human eye). This is what graphics hardware does by default. A substantial improvement is to do [Williams and Siegel 1990] Phong interpolation Gouraud vs. Phong interpolation To get an even smoother result with fewer artifacts, we can perform Phong interpolation. Here s how it works: 1. Compute normals at the vertices. 2. Interpolate normals and normalize. 3. Shade using the interpolated normals. 35 [Williams and Siegel 1990] 36
