Detailed Description

This class represents a directional light source. The light has no position in space and hence has no attenuation properties.

Member Function Documentation

void RayDirectionalLight::drawOpenGL ( int  index)
virtual

This method calls the necessary OpenGL commands to render the light. index specifices the index of the light that is to be drawn.

Implements RayLight.

Point3D RayDirectionalLight::getDiffuse ( Point3D  cameraPosition,
struct RayIntersectionInfo iInfo 
)
virtual

This virtual method returns the diffuse contribution of the light source to the specified hit location. It computes the amount of diffuse light reaching the hit location and scales that using the material properties of the hit location. The returned value is a 3D point whose coefficients should all be in the range [0,1].

Implements RayLight.

Point3D RayDirectionalLight::getSpecular ( Point3D  cameraPosition,
struct RayIntersectionInfo iInfo 
)
virtual

This virtual method returns the specular contribution of the light source to the specified hit location. It computes the amount of diffuse light reaching the hit location, using the normal direction at the hit location (in iInfo), and scales that using the material properties of the hit location. The returned value is a 3D point whose coefficients should all be in the range [0,1].

Implements RayLight.

int RayDirectionalLight::isInShadow ( struct RayIntersectionInfo iInfo,
class RayShape shape 
)
virtual

This virtual method tests if the intersection point represented by iInfo is in shadow from the light source. The returned value is either 0 if the intersection point is not in shadow or 1 if it is.

Implements RayLight.

int RayDirectionalLight::read ( FILE *  fp)
virtual

This method reads in the directional light from a .ray file.

Implements RayLight.

Point3D RayDirectionalLight::transparency ( struct RayIntersectionInfo iInfo,
class RayShape shape,
Point3D  cLimit 
)
virtual

This virtual method tests if the intersection point represented by iInfo is in partial shadow from the light source. A ray is cast from the hit location to the light source, and the transparency values are accumulated. If the transparency value falls below cLimit, the testing terminates. The returned value is a 3D point whose coefficients should all be in the range [0,1].

Implements RayLight.

void RayDirectionalLight::write ( FILE *  fp = stdout)
virtual

This virtual method is responsible for writing out the light source to a .ray file. If no file is specified, the light source is written out stdout.

Implements RayLight.
