Do you want to learn how to apply Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)? Using our documentation, collaboratively developed software, and physical RTI kit, you will be guided on how to use RTI and associated technologies to capture physical real-world subjects so their surface relief features can be examined in minute detail not visible with the naked eye.
The RTI Workflow: What You Need
This page lists the materials we offer with links to more in-depth information about each one. Using these materials, you can learn how to manage the processes step by step.
|Capture||Process: RTIBuilder Download|
|Our Capture materials—guide, glossary, and demonstration videos—explain how to capture real-world subjects photographically so you can produce reflectance transformation images (RTIs). More…||To process your captured photographic data, you can download RTIBuilder, an interface to tools that produce the final RTI file from your image set. A PDF guide and sample files are also available for download. More…|
