property VolumeProperty.shade: bool[source]#

Return or set shading of a volume.

If shading is turned off, then the mapper for the volume will not perform shading calculations. If shading is turned on, the mapper may perform shading calculations - in some cases shading does not apply (for example, in a maximum intensity projection) and therefore shading will not be performed even if this flag is on. For a compositing type of mapper, turning shading off is generally the same as setting ambient=1, diffuse=0, specular=0. Shading can be independently turned on/off per component.
