Camera SoftImage modifying phong point light position?

Hi there

I don’t understand why when I use Camera Transform SoftImage and Phongpoint with a specific light position, the ilumination on the object changes when I move the camera.

Am I missing something? still don’t understand why this happens, maybe it’s just me


hai manuel,

as you may have seen the PhongPoint node has 3 inputs for Colors: Ambient/Diffuse/Specular.

you are only using the latter, which is supposed to do exactly what you wonder about. it simulates a shiny surface that reflects light depending on the angle between viewer and light.

ambient color is a global color that lights the object constantly. the diffuse color may be more what you are looking for.

thanks joreg, i will check that
