ObjectsBackgroundStyle Default Values


BackgroundStyle gives a color blend in the background of a 3D scene.

The background of a 3D scene may be set to a single color (BackgroundStyle = Flat, using BackgroundColor) or to a blend from BackgroundColor to BackgroundColor2, in one of three possible directions: LeftRight and TopBottom are linear blends from left to right or from top to bottom, respectively, while Pyramid sets a linear blend from the center to the borders.


Example 1

We demonstrate all possible styles, using a simple plot and the default values for BackgroundColor and BackgroundColor2:

c1 := plot::Cone(1, [0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 1]):
c2 := plot::Cone(1, [0, 0, 2], [0, 0, 1]):
plot(plot::Scene3d(c1, c2, BackgroundStyle = Flat),
     plot::Scene3d(c1, c2, BackgroundStyle = TopBottom),
     plot::Scene3d(c1, c2, BackgroundStyle = LeftRight),
     plot::Scene3d(c1, c2, BackgroundStyle = Pyramid),
     Layout = Tabular)

delete c1, c2:
