Package X3dForWebAuthors.Chapter11LightingEnvironmentalEffects Description

Light nodes make the appearance of geometry visible and viewable in a scene.

DirectionalLight Diagram

Lights illuminate geometry in a scene relative to the user's view. Lighting nodes include DirectionalLight, PointLight, SpotLight, and the active NavigationInfo headlight (which points along the user's viewing direction).

Environmental effects include Background, TextureBackground, Fog and LocalFog. Each set of light nodes, NavigationInfo nodes, background nodes and fog nodes are bound on a separate binding stack, meaning that only one of each can be active at a time.

The supporting Chapter 11 slideset and course videos (NPS, YouTube) for X3D for Web Authors are available online via X3dGraphics.com.
