Overview

This controls whether or not specular reflections are shown unrendered, in the GUI. Turning this off only makes a slight improvement in speed.

Notice in the images above that the setting is controlling the amount of directly reflected light and not the shininess of the reflection.

Syntax

# turn the setting on or off
set specular, boolean

# turn it off
set specular, off

# turn it on
set specular, on
