In this page, you can find a software package for estimating surface reflectance and the (natural) environmental illumination from a single input image of objects with known geometry. This is achieved through a Bayesian formulation with appropriate statistical priors on the reflectance and illumination. The reflectance prior is based on the Directional Statistics BRDF (DSBRDF) model and a suite of programs to analyze and synthesize object appearance using this model are also included. Details on the joint estimation of reflectance and illumination as well as the DSBRDF model can be found in the following publications:
