Accurately modeling material appearance and surface details is essential for realistic image synthesis. In this talk, I will describe different solutions we have been working in this direction. The first part will be centered on simulating aging and weathering phenomena, with a special interest on scratches and related features, and the use of images to guide weathering simulation in general. We will then overview some approaches for procedural modeling of surface details, where our recent work on Gabor Noise-based detail representation will be introduced. Future directions and other related projects will also be described.
