New paper accepted to Eurographics 2018

After Sebastian Werner introduced our new shading model for iridescent scratches at SIGGRAPH Asia last year, Zdravko Velinov will be presenting the real-time version at Eurographics 2018 in Delft. More details here:

Real-Time Rendering of Wave-Optical Effects on Scratched Surfaces

In this paper, we develop closed-form solutions for illuminating our iridescent scratch model with spherical and polygonal area light sources, bringing this effect within reach of real-time applications for the first time.
