ParametricPlot3D: shading?
Posted:

I am trying to use ParametricPlot3D in the form
ParametricPlot3D[{fx, fy, fz, s}, ...]
where s is a colour specification. I expected that the following two commands would give roughly the same output:
In[3]:= ParametricPlot3D[{x, y, 1, Hue[x]}, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}]
Out[3]= Graphics3D
In[4]:= Plot3D[{1, Hue[x]}, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}]
Out[4]= SurfaceGraphics
But while the second gives a nicely coloured surface, the first does not. I am using
In[5]:= $Version
Out[5]= SPARC 2.2 (February 5, 1994)
What am I doing wrong? Or is there a bug?
