    We have studied how perceived gloss varies with the change of both mesoscale and microscale roughness on 3D surface textures. The mesoscale roughness was changed by varying the roll-off factor (β) of 1/fβ fractal noise surfaces. The microscale roughness was changed by varying the microscale roughness parameter α in the microfacet reflection model. An HDR real-world environment map was used to provide complex illumination and a physically- based path tracer was used for rendering the stimuli. Each simulated surface was rotated about its vertical axis to generate an animated stimulus. Eight observers took part in a 2AFC experiment, and the results were tested against conjoint measurement models. We found that the perceived gloss changes non-monotonically with β (an asymmetric bell curve), and monotonically with α. Although both β and α significantly affect perceived gloss, the additive model is inadequate to describe their interactive and nonlinear influence, which is at variance with previous results [1].
