ANN: Python Computer Graphics Kit v2.0.0alpha1

Discussion in 'Python' started by Matthias Baas, Dec 13, 2004.

  1. The first alpha release of version 2 of the Python Computer Graphics
    Kit is available at http://cgkit.sourceforge.net
    There are still a lot of things missing, but on the other hand, there
    is also quite a lot that is already working and that might make the
    current version useful nevertheless.


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

    The Python Computer Graphics Kit is a generic 3D package written in
    C++ and Python that can be used for a variety of domains such as
    scientific visualization, photorealistic rendering, Virtual Reality or
    even games. The package contains a number of generic modules that can
    be useful for any application that processes 3D data. This includes
    new types such as vectors, matrices and quaternions. Furthermore, the
    package can read and store 3D models in memory where they can be
    manipulated by Python programs. The kit comes with tools that can be
    used to display the scene either interactively or by rendering it
    offline via a RenderMan renderer.


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

    The new version of the kit can store 3D data in memory where it can be
    manipulated via Python programs. The new main features are:

    - 3D data can be stored and manipulated in memory
    - Imports 3DS, VRML, X3D, OFF, IFS
    - Exports RIB (shaders are generated on-the-fly)
    - Create 3D scenes via Python scripting
    - Interactive OpenGL viewer tool
    - OpenGL stereo output (vertical split or quad buffer)
    - Offline render tool that feeds a RenderMan renderer
    - Use the latest graphics card features using the interactive OGRE
    viewer tool (not included in the Windows binary)
    - Connect arbitrary attributes of the same type to create animations
    - Rigid body dynamics via the Open Dynamics Engine
    - Extensible via regular modules or plugins
