Measuring BRDF (bi-directional reflectance distribution function) requires huge amounts of time because a target object must be illuminated from all incident angles and the reflected lights must be measured from all reflected angles. In this paper, we present a high-speed method to measure BRDFs using an ellipsoidal mirror and a projector. Our method makes it possible to change incident angles without a mechanical drive. Moreover, the omni-directional reflected lights from the object can be measured by one static camera at once. Our prototype requires only fifty minutes to measure anisotropic BRDFs, even if the lighting interval is one degree.
