Integrating Spectral and RTI

Guide to Filenames

Experimental Methods Filenames

The basic structure for filenames is creation date, object, (kind of illumination optional), angle of illumination, rendering, channels, camera, and variants separated by hyphens. The example 20140218-Pal1-99-Xepn-04-50m-n.ptm could be read as file created on February 18, 2014, object Palimpsest 1, unlimited angles of illumination, Extended Spectrum using Eureka lights, PCA, normalized, four channels (LRGB), 50 megapixel camera, normalized, polynomial texture map.

Creation date is the date of capture for capture files and for PCA only files, but the date of generation for additionally processed files.

The object code is always four characters

The kind of illumination is always three characters.

The angle of illumination is always two digits.

Rendering is always four characters

Channels is always two digits.

Only one camera identifier is used in for this project in this convention. The conventional RTI control method filenames (above) do not identify the camera explicitly.

Many variants were tested and are distinguished only by appearing at the end of the filename before the file extension.

Conventional Spectral Imaging Control Method Filenames

Additional conventions are used by William Christens-Barry in the creation of the spectral imaging control set.

Conventional RTI Control Method Filenames

The conventional RTI files created by the West Semitic Research Project at the University of Southern California have not been renamed.
