    py5.no_stroke()
    s = py5.create_shape(py5.SPHERE, 30)

    py5.shape(s, 50, 50)
    ambient = s.get_ambient(0)
    py5.println(py5.red(ambient), py5.green(ambient), py5.blue(ambient))

Description

Get the ambient reflectance setting for one of a Py5Shape object’s vertices. This setting is combined with the ambient light component of the environment. Use Py5Shape.set_ambient() to change the setting.

This method can only be used for a complete Py5Shape object, and never within a Py5Shape.begin_shape() and Py5Shape.end_shape() pair.

Underlying Java method: PShape.getAmbient

Syntax

get_ambient(index: int, /) -> int

Parameters

  • index: int - vertex index
