Hello! I'm new :)

Hi all, :slight_smile:
I’m new in this forum, I’m a student and I’m currently learning C++ and Blender. To start, I would like to create a little game about Tux, the mascotte of Linux. Now, I would like to ask you:

  • Does Panda3D support Blender models, animations and textures?
  • I’ve an old PC (ATI 1550X). Can I use it?
  • How easy to use is Panda?
    Thank you for the support :smiley:
    PS. And please tell me what You are working on…

Yes (look for YABEE)
Yes
If you know the basics of programming (functions. loops, classes) then panda 3d is awesome. If you don’t and are looking for a game maker with a user interface then Unity or Gamemaker would be a better choice.

Can I license the game I make under the GNU license ? Or, what license should I use (free and open source game). Thank you :smiley:

Panda itself is under the (modified) BSD license, some third party components have different licenses (look: panda3d.org/manual/index.php … cense_info ).

As far as I understand it, there’s nothing stopping you from releasing your game code as GNU-GPL.

Blender.
For Panda-Blender interactions look for YABEE:


or wait for ninth to publish his newest toy:

Old PC.
If you have an openGL driver for that card then all should be ok, but I would stay away from shaders :wink:

How easy is Panda? I’d say it’s as difficult as Python.

What I’m working on:
Mostly on an editor (doing trees since last week… ):
