    s.set_specular("#FFFFFF")

    s.set_specular("#CC6600")
    py5.shape(s, 50, 75)

Description

Sets the specular color of a Py5Shape object’s material, which sets the color of highlight. This is part of the material properties of a Py5Shape object.

The specular parameter can be applied to the entire Py5Shape object or to a single vertex.

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.setSpecular

Syntax

set_specular(index: int, specular: int, /) -> None
set_specular(specular: int, /) -> None

Parameters

  • index: int - vertex index

  • specular: int - any color value
