Hi, I heard a rumor that all the eggheads hang out in the Python thread. :eyebrowlift:
I’m new to Blender but I have some CAD and computer programming experience with various languages. I used to program a lot in assembly and Visual Basic 6.0 years ago. I’m just now learning to write programs using C# and that’s going along pretty well.
Now that Blender has caught my interest I’m hearing a lot about Python since Blender seems to be compatible with Python.
What I would like to know is what can you do with Python in Blender?
Can you animate with Python? Can you control Armature drivers and other objects in Blender scenes using Python? Is that the main use of it?
I’m setting up to model and create a few characters in Blender that I would ultimately like to make into a movie. I’d like to know ahead of time how Python fits into the animation picture so that I can create armature systems that will be easy to manipulate with Python (if indeed that’s even possible).
So any light you can shed on this would be much appreciated. Also if you can point to any good Python Tutorials or books that would get me up to speed quick that would be great too.
Thanks for any comments.
