[osg-users] specular highlight with SEPARATE_SPECULAR_COLOR

Hi all,

I'm try to get a specular highlights effect by using the
osg::LightModel::SEPARATE_SPECULAR_COLOR mode.

If I got it straight, this should compute a second color for the
specular component to be added after lighting and texturing.
So for instance, by using a light with white specular component and on a
material with white specular color, I'd expect a white highlight in the
final result. Instead what I get is the highlight modulated by the
texture, as if I were using osg::LightModel::SINGLE_COLOR mode.

Any suggestion on where I might be wrong?

Find attached a modified osgLight example to reproduce the problem with
a sample model.
I basically removed the model animation, set a white specular on the
light number 2, and added these lines of code:

osg::StateSet* pSS = rootnode->getOrCreateStateSet();
// set separate specular color
osg::LightModel* pLightModel =new osg::LightModel;
pSS->setAttributeAndModes(pLightModel, osg::StateAttribute::ON

I'm on
osg 1.2
nVidia 7900 GTX (tried both older and latest drivers)

Thank you
