Measured Materials in a Digital Workflow using AxF

Total Appearance Capture (TAC) Ecosystem from X-Rite Pantone is a revolutionary innovation that is reinventing the design process, including accurate capture and portrayal of both color and appearance of a wide variety of materials both simple and complex. TAC captures a material’s appearance attributes, independent of viewing conditions, and stores the results in a digital file format, AxF (Appearance eXchange Format). Using measured materials within AxF enables a physically-based, digital workflow through the entire production process.
