Anyone have any good references on the differences between the different diffuse and specular shading models (Oren Nayer, Lambert, Cook Torrence, etc...)

Or I could download the manual and look there. Runs away with tail between legs....

Also - Dave Jerrard mentioned a bit about these in a primer he posted about on nodes.

Sorry - don't have the link but search should find it.

I've just started switching completely over to node based texturing and am trying to figure out what everything does. I think it is something that is going to take a long time, especially since I just bought the IFW nodes. Those alone could keep you fiddling for months.

And consider buying James Willmott's node intro from Kurv.

Dave Jerrard and James Willmott have contributed (among others) to the node explanations here: http://www.lightwiki.com/Node_Explanations
