Light Material

light(
  color = "#ffffff",
  intensity = 10,
  importance_sample = TRUE,
  spotlight_focus = NA,
  spotlight_width = 30,
  spotlight_start_falloff = 15,
  image_texture = NA,
  image_repeat = 1,
  gradient_color = NA,
  gradient_transpose = FALSE,
  gradient_point_start = NA,
  gradient_point_end = NA,
  gradient_type = "hsv"
)

Arguments

color

Default `white`. The color of the light Can be either a hexadecimal code, R color string, or a numeric rgb vector listing three intensities between `0` and `1`.

intensity

Default `NA`. If a positive value, this will turn this object into a light emitting the value specified in `color` (ignoring other properties). Higher values will produce a brighter light.

importance_sample

Default `TRUE`. Keeping this on for lights improves the convergence of the rendering algorithm, in most cases. If the object is particularly important in contributing to the light paths in the image (e.g. light sources, refracting glass ball with caustics, metal objects concentrating light), this will help with the convergence of the image.

spotlight_focus

Default `NA`, no spotlight. Otherwise, a length-3 numeric vector specifying the x/y/z coordinates that the spotlight should be focused on. Only works for spheres and rectangles.

spotlight_width

Default `30`. Angular width of the spotlight.

spotlight_start_falloff

Default `15`. Angle at which the light starts fading in intensity.

image_texture

Default `NA`. A 3-layer RGB array or filename to be used as the texture on the surface of the object.

image_repeat

Default `1`. Number of times to repeat the image across the surface. `u` and `v` repeat amount can be set independently if user passes in a length-2 vector.

gradient_color

Default `NA`. If not `NA`, creates a secondary color for a linear gradient between the this color and color specified in `color`. Direction is determined by `gradient_transpose`.

gradient_transpose

Default `FALSE`. If `TRUE`, this will use the `v` coordinate texture instead of the `u` coordinate texture to map the gradient.

gradient_point_start

Default `NA`. If not `NA`, this changes the behavior from mapping texture coordinates to mapping to world space coordinates. This should be a length-3 vector specifying the x,y, and z points where the gradient begins with value `color`.

gradient_point_end

Default `NA`. If not `NA`, this changes the behavior from mapping texture coordinates to mapping to world space coordinates. This should be a length-3 vector specifying the x,y, and z points where the gradient begins with value `gradient_color`.

gradient_type

Default `hsv`. Colorspace to calculate the gradient. Alternative `rgb`.

Value

Single row of a tibble describing the light material.
