Motivated by the exponential fall-o of scattered intensity with distance, di use subsurface scattering is represented as a sum of exponentials per surface point plus a modulation texture. Modeling quality can be improved by using an anisotropic model where exponential parameters are determined per surface location and scattering direction. We validate the scattering model for a set of planar object samples which were recorded under controlled conditions and quantify the modeling error. Furthermore, several translucent objects with complex geometry are captured and compared to the real object under similar illumination conditions.},\nTYPE = {Research Report / Max-Planck-Institut f\xc3\xbcr Informatik},\n}\n'
