glsl-specular-gaussian

Computes specular power from a Gaussian microfacet distribution

Example

#pragma glslify: gaussSpec require(glsl-specular-gaussian) 
 
uniform vec3 eyePosition;
uniform vec3 lightPosition;
 
uniform float shininess;
 
varying vec3 surfacePosition;
varying vec3 surfaceNormal;
 
void main() {
  vec3 eyeDirection = normalize(eyePosition - surfacePosition);
  vec3 lightDirection = normalize(lightPosition - surfacePosition);
  vec3 normal = normalize(surfaceNormal);
 
  float power = gaussSpec(lightDirection, viewDirection, normal, shininess);
 
  gl_FragColor = vec4(power,power,power,1.0);
}

Usage

Install with npm:

npm install glsl-specular-gaussian

Then use with glslify.

API

#pragma glslify: gaussSpec require(glsl-specular-gaussian) 
float gaussSpec(vec3 lightDir, vec3 eyeDir, vec3 normal, float shininess)

Computes the specular power in the Gaussian model

  • lightDir is a unit length vec3 pointing from the surface point toward the light
  • eyeDir is a unit length vec3 pointing from the surface point toward the camera
  • normal is the surface normal at the sample point
  • shininess is the size of the specular hight light. Smaller values give a sharper spot, while larger values give a more spread out highlight

Returns A float representing the specular power
