In our never-ending quest for even more photorealism in 3D (CG), we invested in a TAC7 scanner from Xrite (Pantone).

As the first one in the Benelux..

With this extraordinary piece of equipment,  we scan flat samples of materials, ausing 7000-16000 shots under different angles, with different exposures, and projection of structures. thus a file is created which can be used in 3D rendering software.

This file possesses ALL visual information of that material, and takes care of perfect lighting and reflections into an object.

A gigantic progress for photoreal renders.

We created a separate website for this:
