elevation

The elevation attribute specifies the direction angle for the light source from the XY plane towards the Z-axis, in degrees. Note that the positive Z-axis points towards the viewer of the content.

You can use this attribute with the following SVG elements:

Example

<svg viewBox="0 0 440 200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <filter id="distantLight1">
    <feDiffuseLighting>
      <feDistantLight elevation="0" />
    </feDiffuseLighting>
  </filter>
  <filter id="distantLight2">
    <feDiffuseLighting>
      <feDistantLight elevation="45" />
    </feDiffuseLighting>
  </filter>

  <circle cx="100" cy="100" r="80" style="filter: url(#distantLight1);" />
  <circle
    cx="100"
    cy="100"
    r="80"
