Delivering a standardized format for communicating color appearance data helps to reduce cycle time, control costs, and ensure consistency in automotive paint color and appearance. However, when visualizing complex materials like automotive paint, capturing material appearance data in a single, editable, portable file format has been an obstacle, especially when different formats are used in parallel.

Appearance Exchange Format (AxF) is the first format designed for system-independent communication of digital appearance. In this brief webinar, you will learn how to capture, store, edit, and communicate complex digital appearance data throughout an automotive paint digital design workflow.  

Watch This Webinar to Learn:

  • About AxF, a vendor-neutral appearance format that is scalable to ensure efficient access for large data
  • How an AxF file made with the TAC7 scanner has the exact same optical characteristics as a physical sample
  • How accurate digital appearance data can help automotive manufacturers make key decisions about color and material earlier and with more confidence. 
  • How AxF standardizes appearance data storage and sharing, including color, texture, gloss, refraction, special effects, and reflection properties, across PLM, CAD and state-of-the art rendering applications.
