Anybody ever notice if specular decreases with distance between the light and surface?

u can keyframe/envelope the attributes to simulate if you have a moving light/object and want to give the illusion of distance over time.

Specular does not fall off any differently than other surface attributes. If the light has natural falloff, the only surface attribute I can think of that would NOT fall off with increased distance would be luminosity.
