Here is an example based on a 3D plot in the Graphics`ParametricPlot3D` 


ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[u] Cos[v],Sin[u] 

    1. The 4th coordinate is represented in plots by using graphics 
properties (there are no spatial dimensions left to use!). In this case 
EdgeForm[] is used to suppress the mesh lines.
    2. The option LightSources is used to control the placement of the light 
sources. Here LightSources->{{{1,0,1},RGBColor[1,0,0]}} is used to create a 
single red light source that illuminates the part of the plot that is
