questions about material in radiance

Hi ,
materials are defined in radiance by their RGB colors and by their specularity and roughness. I'm trying to test different materials given in radiance tutorial and I have a question about metal2 rolled_aluminium defined :
void metal2 rolled_aluminium
4 0 0 1 .
0
6 .31 .31 .31 .68 .04 .09
what is the signification of the first line : 4 0 0 1 . ? What can we put in the second line defined in this example by 0
Why do we define 6 arguments and not 5 in the last line and what is .09
If i want to test this material in colour picker for radiance given in this site : http://www.jaloxa.eu/resources/radiance/colour_picker/index.shtml
where can I write the arguments of the first line ?
thanks,
Imène SLAMA

Hi Imene,

materials are defined in radiance by their RGB colors and by their
specularity and roughness. I'm trying to test different materials
given in radiance tutorial and I have a question about
metal2 rolled_aluminium defined :
void metal2 rolled_aluminium
4 0 0 1 .
0
6 .31 .31 .31 .68 .04 .09
what is the signification of the first line : 4 0 0 1 . ?
What can we put in the second line defined in this example by 0
Why do we define 6 arguments and not 5 in the last line and what is .09

The Radiance material specifications are explained in the Radiance
Reference Manual:
http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/refer/refman.pdf

The metal2 material has anisotropic roughness. The direction of the
anisotrophy is defined by the vector in the 2nd line (0 0 1). The
urough and vrough values (0.04 and 0.09) define the roughness
perpendicular to the roughness vector.
See 'plastc2' on p7 and 'metal2' on p8 of the Reference manual.

If i want to test this material in colour picker for radiance
given in this site : http://www.jaloxa.eu/resources/radiance/colour_picker/index.shtml
where can I write the arguments of the first line ?

The Jaloxa colour picker only supports 'plastic' and 'metal'. Sorry.

Regards

Axel

thank you Axel,
