Hi, try ParametricPlot3D[ {Cos[\[Phi]]*Sin[\[Theta]], Sin[\[Phi]]*Sin[\[Theta]], Cos[\[Theta]]}, {\[Theta], 0, Pi}, {\[Phi], 0, Pi}, ColorFunction -> (Directive[Hue[1/6, .3, 1], Specularity[Hue[1/6, 1, 1], 8]] &) ] Regards Jens congruentialuminaire at yahoo.com wrote: > Hello Mathematica UG: > > I created a plot with the following V5 Graphics directive under V6: > > SurfaceColor[ Hue[1/6, .3, 1], Hue[1/6, 1, 1], 8] > > The command (ParametricPlot3D) complains that this is a legacy > operation and that I should use ColorFunction. > > Help in V6 says that SurfaceColor has been deprecated in favor of > Specularity and Glow. > > I looked at the help for all of these and I am not sure which > arguments correspond, except the 3rd is the glow. > > If it is easy to translate this, I would greatly appreciate any help > and/or pointers convert this. > > TIA. > > Regards..Roger > >
