In my program, I haven''t specified any materials for my objects with GL_MATERIALS or whatever that is, but using a blue light, the whole scene goes darker with a nice bluish tint to it and with some fog, it looks kickass. So, do you guys know if OpenGL is using any default material properties coz , I am about to specify materials for the objects and don''t want to lose the light effect the scene currently has. Neo
