Py5Graphics.ambient()#

Sets the ambient reflectance for shapes drawn to the screen.

Description#

Sets the ambient reflectance for shapes drawn to the screen. This is combined with the ambient light component of the environment. The color components set through the parameters define the reflectance. For example in the default color mode, setting ambient(255, 127, 0), would cause all the red light to reflect and half of the green light to reflect. Use in combination with Py5Graphics.emissive(), Py5Graphics.specular(), and Py5Graphics.shininess() to set the material properties of shapes.

This method is the same as ambient() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see ambient().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.ambient
