3d libraries dump

2006-04-25 16:02:59.616914+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

A /. thread on simple 3d game engines gave:

  • VPython, "3d programming for ordinary mortals", a packaging of Python[Wiki] with a few libraries to do simple 3d.
  • Cube is an open source game engine with an emphasis on in-game world generation.
  • PyOgre is bindings to the Ogre 3d libraries.
  • Panda is a Python[Wiki] 3d library with an emphasis on short learning curve.
  • Quesa is an open source implementation of Apple's QuickDrawtm 3d.

Slightly less interesting, perhaps because I haven't taken the time to look at 'em yet or perhaps because they look like yet another abstraction layer or scene tree or whatever:

  • G3d looks like a graphics and sockets layer abstraction.
  • irrlicht is a free open source 3d application.
  • Delta3d is allegedly a U.S. military backed game engine, looks like the usual layering of stuff atop OpenSceneGraph, ODE and Cal3d.

I'd include Soya3D on this list as another python library.. I've only looked at it briefly but I think it was a good bit easier to use than, say, PyOgre.
