Example text

Color is most commonly specified using RGB values, though the HSV model (Hue, Saturation, Value) is also used. Many people use the RGB model exclusively, as they find it preferable for color selection, but the HSV model is very useful in terms of increasing the brightness of a color. With the HSV model, the Hue field chooses the color from the color model, the Saturation field the purity of the color (the higher the saturation, the less gray the color). The Value field sets the brightness of a color, and it is this that can be used to control the intensity of a light, in combination with its Multiplier value.

In real life, as we’ve already touched on, light decays in proportion to the square of the distance from the light source and this is how all photometric lights behave. Using this type of decay with standard lights provides a subtle realism to the light, but can prove too restrictive and can produce dim results in areas distant from the light whilst at the same time applying an overly bright area around the source. 10 igure A standard light’s controls The use of inverse square attenuation also does not reduce the light calculation time as one might first think, as the light actually never fades to zero.

However, the rate at which you would get hotter would not increase uniformly as you approached; you would feel a slow increase early on, but as you got closer and closer to the fire, you’d feel a very rapid increase in heat. This is the inverse square law in action. The way in which light fades from its source also obeys this law. The light’s luminosity (the light’s energy emission per second) does not change; what alters is the light’s brightness as perceived by the viewer. As light travels further away from its source, it covers more area and this is what makes it lose its intensity, fading according to the reciprocal of the square of the distance.
