Hi...Does anyone know of a good web-site or link that has a listing of various materials with the ambient, diffuse and specular parameters. ie. The Material "Gold" has ambient:0.24725, 0.1995, 0.0745 diffuse: 0.75164, 0.60648, 0.22648 and specular: 0.628281, 0.555802, 0.366065.

Thanks... http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

I use an app. called BMChooser, which lets you play with materials till you get a desired material, then you can cut/paste their generated OpenGL code.

The link is: http://www.boolat.dn.ua/bmchooser.shtml

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the link but as my luck would have it, the download link doesn't work anymore! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif Does anyone else have any sites which they use?

The only place that I have seen a list of material properties is here: http://reality.sgi.com/blythe/sig99/advanced99/notes/node153.html

A good book:
Roy Hall.
Illumination and Color in Computer Generated Imagery.
Springer-Verlag, New York, 1989.
includes C code for radiosity algorithms.
