Computes specular power from a Gaussian microfacet distribution


#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);


Install with npm:

npm install glsl-specular-gaussian

Then use with glslify.


#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
