Description : Collection of python modules that contain the basic types and functions to be able to create 3D computer graphics images.
The Python Computer Graphics Kit is a generic 3D package that can be useful
in any domain where you have to deal with 3D data of any kind, be it for
visualization, creating photorealistic images, Virtual Reality or even
At its lowest level, the package provides the basic functionality that is
useful for writing your own tools that process 3D data. For example, the
cgtypes module defines the fundamental types for Computer Graphics such as
vectors and matrices, the ri module contains the complete RenderMan API to
create RIB files, and so on.
Using these relatively low level modules the second level provides the
functionality to store a 3D scene in memory. This is the major part of the
package and this actually turns the general purpose language Python into a
specialized scripting language like MEL or MaxScript, for example.
Eventually, the package provides small tools that let you actually see your
3D scene. The two standard tools are for interactive rendering using OpenGL
and for offline rendering using a RenderMan renderer.
