Get Specular Colour[edit]

Get Specular Colour Provides the "Specular Colour" of the current Render State. The Render State is affected by any shaders which were called before this function is called, among other things.

Specular Colour is the additive component of the appearance of a surface which was reflected from light sources by an amount that strongly depended on the viewing angle, surface normal and light direction. Usually this comes from "specular highlights" settings in the GUI. Currently, ray traced reflections are not stored in the specular component, but this may change in future.

Graphical User Interface, a general term that refers to the interface of any program running in a modern graphical operating system and which does not operate exclusively from the commandline.
