  • i have this idea for a music visualizer, but I dont have any real background in computer graphics. I was hoping to use python to make 3d visuals but it turns out python isnt great for this. I'm wondering whats the best approach to take for this? Blender? OpenGL/C++? I also want to integrate machine learning via python to this project which is why I wanted to use python for the whole thing

    The visuals i want to do range from particle effects to image processing to 3D models, i suppose for such a wide range of methods i should use a dedicated platform like blender but i just wanted to see if anyone knows of python libraries for this

    ig blender is my best bet ik i can make some wild visuals with that, but im wondering how well i can integrate python into blender using external scripts/libraries, and how i could make an application using blender? Ideally people could download this visualizer and use it with their own music

    @op i thought pytorch was good at handling tensors for 3D rendering, but haven't used it myself so can't personally vouch.

    this one looks cool as hell, seems like a good start eventually wanna start making animations myself

    yea pytorch or maybe tensorflow would be good for matrix manipulations, didnt know people use those libraries for visual art but its worth checking out for sure. At that level the issue would be learning the maths required to create actual evolving visuals, which is something else im interested in

    Always nice when one side project you like and want to work out multiples into other things you wanted to do
