Where to start?

Well hello everyone at panda3d. I have about 1 year of programming experience with Java, C, and Visual Basic. Im not very advanced in any of them really but I have the basics and some more down. I have come here wanting to make a small 3d game and was wondering where I should start? Which language should I use and what aspects of that language should I know before I start to play with the engine?

You can’t use Java, C, and Visual Basic with panda3d easily. The languages panda3d supports are C++ and Python.

I always recommend python. Python is not all that different from Basic and Java you should be able to pick it up in no time.

Well, you could use C with Panda. Interrogate supports generating C wrappers, I believe.

But yeah, I recommend working through a python tutorial - it will be very easy to pick up for you.

At the top of the page there’s a link for the Manual. I’d start there.
