Using SciPy in Blender 2.5x ?


Do you know if it is possible to use Scipy for Python Scripting in Blender 2.5x ?
( (coded for Python 2.5 or 2.6)

Generally, can we import some modules installed for Python 2.5 or 2.6 from Blender Integrated Python ?

Thanks !


I do not think so, the scipy things have to be compiled for Python 3.1 and they are not yet available …

Can I call a 2.5 python script (from Python 3.1 Blender) ?
(for example, with a standard Python 2.5 and Scipy installed on c:/python25)

My 2.5 Python script using Scipy…called in Blender ?
Do you think something possible ???

Some 2.5 scripts are not different to 3.1 scripts, so they will run.
BUT to my knowledge scipy uses dll files made for 2.5 (2.6) but NOT yet for 3.1 Python, which has to do the job!
I would like to know, if my ideas are right or wrong.
At least I read (I think) that the scipy-people think about ‘ubgrading’ to 3.1 …

Ok…Thanks !

No way to try something ??? Any idea ? (passing XML files , pipe ?..)

Hmm, interesting idea, to let the two programs interact, but that I have never done …

Did a little googling

The SciPy 0.9.0 release notes say it has full py3k support so I’m imagining that you could either compile it from source (using the most recent svn version) or wait a few weeks/months/years until they do an official release.
