ANN: Python Computer Graphics Kit v1.0.1

Discussion in 'Python' started by Matthias Baas, Sep 10, 2003.

  1. The first non-beta release of the Python Computer Graphics Kit is
    available at http://cgkit.sourceforge.net

    What is it?
    -----------

    The kit is a collection of Python modules that contain the basic types
    and functions required for creating 3D computer graphics images. The
    kit includes several new types such as vectors, matrices and
    quaternions. It contains a binding for Pixar's RenderMan interface
    which is a renderer independent API to communicate 3D data to
    renderers which will finally produce a 2D image. There are already
    several RenderMan compliant renderers freely available (they are not
    part of the kit). The kit also includes some of the functionality from
    the RenderMan Shading Language which enables you to create procedural
    models or textures from within Python.

    Even though the kit focuses on RenderMan, the new types or the
    Shading Language functionality can also be used for other rendering
    mechanism such as OpenGL or other renderers such as POV-Ray.

    The kit should run on any platform where Python (and a C/C++ compiler)
    is available. Windows users can download a binary version for
    Python 2.2 and Python 2.3.


    What's new?
    -----------

    Finished the previously incomplete modules and added the corresponding
    documentation. For a list of other minor bug fixes and enhancements
    see the change log.

    There has been release 1.0 available for a couple of days but the
    binary for Python 2.2 was broken and the source zip contained a
    modified version of the pre-generated file cgtypes.c which didn't work
    on Linux. Release 1.0.1 is fixing these issues. If you were among
    those who downloaded release 1.0 and you got it to work then you don't
    have to download 1.0.1 again as there's no difference in
    functionality.
