Hair simulation

Rendering hair and fur and other fibers is a very challenging task. The scattering of light from thousands or even millions of very thin strands has to be simulated. Using state-of-the-art rendering techniques we were able to meet the needs of our clients in the field of cosmetics industry, computer games and visual effects.

Besides synthesis techniques we also offered unique tools for fully capturing the appearance (“optical fingerprint”) of hair. This optical fingerprint can be used to render realistic images exactly matching a given hair color or to analyze and quantify optical properties such as hair luster.
