For example, users, such as lighting design engineers, require accurate descriptions of light source distributions that match physical light bulbs available in the real world. Idealized spatial distributions of lights assume lights are point lights; more realistically, lights are modeled as area lights. The directional distributions of typical luminaires is determined by the shape of their associated light fixtures. Though the spectral distribution of light could also be simulated accurately, global illumination algorithms typically simulate RGB (or a similar triple) for efficiency reasons.

N ·Ψ Modified Blinn-Phong model. While the simplicity of the Phong model is appealing, it has some serious limitations: it is not energy conserving, it does not satisfy Helmholtz’s reciprocity, and it does not capture the behavior of most real materials. The modified Blinn-Phong model addresses some of these problems: fr (x, Ψ ↔ Θ) = ks (N · H)n + kd . Physically Based Shading Models The modified Blinn-Phong model is still not able to capture realistic BRDFs. Physically based models, such as Cook-Torrance [33] and He [67], among others, attempt to model physical reality.
