Author Topic: Benefits of Multi-angle scan?  (Read 1926 times)

Would be grateful to anyone who can explain Multi-angle scan in more detail.  Specifically, what are the benefits to Multi-angle scan a material with 8 points of 45 degree lighting over simply using a single texture and extracting the various PBR maps using B2M tools in Alchemist?

Hello,

Here is a complete article from the data acquisition and the data processing in Substance Designer of a multiangle scan workflow: https://www.allegorithmic.com/blog/your-smartphone-material-scanner-vol-ii

Using more images in input improves the quality of the data you can extract. You get better information in your color and in your normal/height.

Hope it answers your question.

Cheers
