Re: Diffuse = max 100%, Mixed and Specular > 100%, Linearly

I am following this casually only - my understanding is that 100 reflectance (for a diffuse surface) means that all falling light is reflected but in all directions. You are looking from some specific one. You see a small portion of all that light coming at you only. A mirror-like surface can direct it all to you.
