The founder of Texturing.xyz Jeremy Celeste has presented Despecular – a tool/filter for removing indirect specular reflection on skin. The tool mimics the effect of a cross polarized technique using a single image on human skin.
Companies with a scanning system using bounced lights that produce an even lighting on the subject are said to benefit from the solution.
As POC in this video, I choosed the Emily 2 project’s images, with cross polarized and unpolarized images to compare Despecular tool vs true cross polarized images.
The tool also works really well on unwrapped face images from a scanning software such as Agisoft Photoscan or Reality capture.
Nuke allows batch processing using same or different settings, also a real time preview for adjusting the weight slider as desired.
