Lecture 13: Global Illumination and Path Tracing (16)

Just out of curiosity, what kind of reflection would this be? Glossy specular?


It seems like it straddles the border between glossy specular and diffuse, perhaps more on the diffuse than glossy. The highlights are relatively muted compared to the gold paint from a couple of slides ago, but the existence of highlights indicate that light isn't being reflected perfectly equally in all directions like the diffuse teapot.
