Abstract: In this paper we investigated if shader effects as interaction hints can be used in a Virtual Reality simulation to manipulate peoples’ object selection behavior. We compared the effects Glowing Outline, Color Saturation and Transparency and showed in a study with 13 participants that objects with prominent shader effects get selected significantly more often in a virtual reality simulation compared to transparent or objects without any applied effect (p = 0,01). However, the impact of the annotating shader declines throughout interactions done.
