I'm using a graphics format reading library. There are three luminance modes for materials available, which I'm trying to wrap my head around:

  • Self-illumination, which I interpret to mean "glow", as in a glowing light bulb,
  • Color emission, which I interpret to be using the diffuse color mask for the lumination,
  • Luminance, which I interpret to be the exact same as self-illumination.

How on the mark am I from the brief context I've given?
