Achieve Similar Lighting in Panda3d?


I want to use Panda3D to render a scene but with the lighting similar to this:

Would I be able to use Shaders and Post Processing Effects that Panda3d provides and exactly recreate that?

This is what I have so far…

Yes, you can, if you know how to program shaders. At the moment it doesn’t depend on the engine.
For example, here is a library that has its own shaders.

You need to write something similar.

Hey, have tried out Rendering Pipeline its pretty great. I also wanted to know if it was possible to just do a single offscreen render with it?

You can create a buffer from an open window.

from panda3d.core import load_prc_file_data

load_prc_file_data('', 'window-type offscreen')

import sys
from direct.showbase.ShowBase import ShowBase

class Application(ShowBase):

    def __init__(self):

        sys.path.insert(0, "../../")
        sys.path.insert(0, "../../RenderPipeline")

        from rpcore import RenderPipeline

        self.render_pipeline = RenderPipeline()

App = Application()

I looked at the RP sources, it looks like it disables the base display region. I think you can change the code to get the framebuffer that is used.

I don’t think you need to use the RenderPipeline to achieve this look, a few shaders could do the job, but you would need to learn shader programming.
