2000). These models typically differ in how well they approximate reality, how much information is required to evaluate the model, and the amount of computational power required to evaluate the model. Some models may make very simple assumptions about the surface characteristics of the object, for example, whether the object is smooth or rough, while others may require much more detailed information, such as the index of refraction or spectral response curves. 4 This lighting model separates the contributions from the light sources reflecting off the object into four intensity contributions — ambient, diffuse, specular, and emissive (Itot = Iam + Idi + Isp + Iem ) — that are combined with surface properties to produce the shaded color.

Textures mapped with object-space linear texgen appear fixed to their objects; eyespace linear textures are fixed relative to the viewpoint and appear fixed in the scene. Object space mappings are typically used to apply textures to the surface of an object to create a specific surface appearance, whereas eye-space mappings are used to apply texturing effects to all or part of the environment containing the object. One of OpenGL’s more important texture generation modes is environment mapping. Environment mapping derives texture coordinate values from vectors (such as normals or reflection vectors) rather than points.

Note that generating a new transform each frame is generally better than incrementally updating a particular transformation, since the latter approach can lead to large accumulation of arithmetic errors over time. 6 Visualizing Transform Sequences Using transformations to build complex objects from simpler ones, then placing and orienting them in the scene can result in long sequences of transformations concatenated together. Taking full advantage of transform functionality requires being able to understand and accurately visualize the effect of transform combinations.
