There's a bug in the OpenGL renderer that produces faulty face lighting in surface plots
There's a bug in the OpenGL renderer that produces faulty face lighting in surface plots, see picture above and http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/new...w_thread/249184 .
This submission contains a function that computes face normal data for the 'VertexNormals' property of the surface that fixes the lighting (facenorm.m) as well as a workaround function that you can just use in place of surf (surfo.m).
Only use this if you get erroneous surface plots and you can't go without OpenGL and flat lighting.
System Requirements:MATLAB 7.7 (R2008b)
Program Release Status: New Release
