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.

Many real-world surfaces are covered in fine scratches that diffract light in colorful ways. Our model seamlessly transitions between ray optics and wave optics to recreate this intricate effect.
