Panda3D at Carnegie

Hello there, I am currently a student at Carnegie Mellon and we use a Panda3D version in which has a substantial difference from the commercially available one. The one used at Carnegie Mellon has a much greater look out of the box, and has better optimization. Why is it, that this is being hidden from the majority of P3D users?

I am not aware of this. I thought CMU was no longer using Panda3D. Can you tell me more about the version of Panda3D that is being used at CMU?

We (the ETC dept) are not aware of any such version. It’s possible that a professor in some other dept here at CMU has compiled their own fork, but we doubt it.

Which CMU course is this, and who is the professor?

Are you sure it’s Panda3D you’re using?

Just for reference in all likelyhood the student posting their question mistook Unity for Panda3D. Panda3D is not “commercially available” as it’s not a sold product but a free utility.
In all likelyhood the student has no interest to post again here or is ashamed to admit the above possible fact of mistaking Unity for Panda3D.
