By indicating a color temperature, you can easier get the correct light color in your scene. Some general color temperatures for common light sources are:
- Candles (1850K)
- Incandescent (2700)
- Halogen (3000K)
- Fluorescent (4200)
- The sun (5000-6500K)
The target mood of a scene can be achieved by picking the right color temperature. Westinghouselighting.com and Lovel.com has got good guides for that.
For a detailed explanation of color temperature, see for example techmind.org
- Output value: color
Color depth, also known as color at depth, is a texture designed to make setting absorption simpler. Normally, you set absorption by defining the color that will be absorbed, resulting in a color control that is essentially "backwards". This texture allows you to instead set the desired result color and how far the light should penetrate before reaching that color.
- Transmission color - The target color of the transmitted light as it reaches the defined depth
- Depth - The depth in meters at which the specified transmission color is reached
