Description#

Sets the amount of gloss in the surface of a Py5Shape object. Use in combination with Py5Shape.ambient(), Py5Shape.specular(), and Py5Shape.emissive() to set the material properties of a Py5Shape object.

This method can only be used within a Py5Shape.begin_shape() and Py5Shape.end_shape() pair. The shininess color setting will be applied to vertices added after the call to this method.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.shininess

Syntax#

shininess(shine: float, /) -> None

Parameters#

  • shine: float - degree of shininess
