Lighting Properties

  • Specular Type: Shows the color that appears when light comes from a particular direction and bounces back from the surface in a mirrored direction. The specular color is the direct reflection of a directional light source. This is the typical effect of shiny metal and plastic. Specular color can be understood as a kind of shininess of color.
