diffuseConstant

The diffuseConstant attribute represents the kd value in the Phong lighting model. In SVG, this can be any non-negative number.

It’s used to determine the final RGB value of a given pixel. The brighter the lighting-color, the smaller this number should be.

Only one element is using this attribute: <feDiffuseLighting>

<svg viewBox="0 0 420 200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <filter id="diffuseLighting1" x="0" y="0" width="100%" height="100%">
    <feDiffuseLighting in="SourceGraphic" diffuseConstant="1">
      <fePointLight x="60" y="60" z="20" />
    </feDiffuseLighting>
  </filter>
  <filter id="diffuseLighting2" x="0" y="0" width="100%" height="100%">
    <feDiffuseLighting in="SourceGraphic" diffuseConstant="2">
      <fePointLight x="60" y="60" z="20" />
    </feDiffuseLighting>
  </filter>

  <rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" style="filter: url(#diffuseLighting1);" />
  <rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" style="filter: url(#diffuseLighting2); transform: translateX(220px);" />
