He needed very urgent some HDRI skies so sended him the Dutch Skies 360° HDRI – Autumn Pack 01 Reloadedcatalog

Chris Asked if it was ok that he would mention me in the Paper and during the presentation… well needed to think about it for +/- 0,00023 nano seconds 😉

Thanks to Chris for this nice collaboration & his permission to show this on the website!

Also thanks to my friend Thomas Mansencal who suggested Chris to contact me.

( excerpt from the “Empirical Directional Wave Spectra for Computer Graphics” Paper )

This paper could not have been accomplished without the patient
teaching of John Anderson. Allen Hemberger, Areito Echevarria,
Mike Root, and Kevin Romond provided valuable feedback on the
paper, and have been longtime users upon whose experience the
design of the system relied. Water is worth loving. Bill Polson at
Pixar provided the insight regarding the use of the change of variables
theorem when adapting the spectra to wave-number space.
Shane Cooper provided valuable feedback on implementation details
for early versions of this system.
Thanks to Weta Digital, Pixar Animation Studios, Google, and
my colleagues from the former Tweak Films for using, supporting,
and contributing to the many incarnations of Empirical Directional
Waves over the last 14 years.
Allen Hemberger and Pixar Animation Studios provided beautiful
rendered ocean images for this paper, and invaluable aesthetic guidance
along the way. Special thanks to Bob Groothuis for the use of
his Dutch Skies Sky Dome images in our interactive rendering tool.
