Cecilia, Farrah, Texas Dave, and tdaxp need to know.
Say you were floating in a perfect sphere. The lighting is ambient, the sphere is of reasonable diameter, and your side of the sphere is perfectly reflective. What do you see?
1. Are you blinded because the light level keeps increasing and it is impossible for light ot escape?
2. Do you see pure white, because color is adative?
3. Some superposition of different parts of yourself?
The obvious was to solve this would be with Lightwave or Blender… but a blog post is way cooler.
