Help Deciding on Blender

Postby TonyA » Thu Jun 14, 2012 9:15 pm

Hello,

I am just exploring the options of Blender. Having done a little exploring with Panda3D I am weighing options of both.

I know that you can script Blender using Python, so I was wondering if it is also possible to include external 3rd party python modules with a game made with Blender?

If so, can someone point me in the right direction for further study?

Any info or advice would be sincerely appreciated.

not sure what you wanna do... use Blender Game Engine together with your own / 3rd party python scripts? --> very possible!
I'm sitting, waiting, wishing, building Blender in superstition...

Yes, I'd like to use this audio processing module called "pyo", located at: http://code.google.com/p/pyo/ with the Blender game engine.

Does Blender have a utility to package/create an exe of your game?
If so, would I be able to include the "pyo" module with my game?

Thanks again for any help,
TonyA

there is a runtime generator script, which should package all the needed stuff together, see File > User prefs. > Addons

Including external scripts shouldn't be a problem, but pyo seems to be Python 2.4-2.7 only, current Blender has Python 3.2

Thanks again. I downloaded Blender 2.49b to use with Python 2.6
in order to use Pyo.
