Rendering complex scenes for psychophysics using RADIANCE: How accurate can you get?

Abstract

Rendering packages are used by visual psychophysicists to produce complex stimuli for their experiments, tacitly assuming that the simulation results accurately reflect the light–surface interactions of a real scene. RADIANCE is a physically based, freely available, and commonly used rendering software. We validated the calculation accuracy of this package by comparing simulation results with measurements from real scenes. RADIANCE recovers color gradients well but the results are shifted in color space. Currently, there is no better simulation alternative for achieving physical accuracy than by combining a spectral rendering method with RADIANCE.
