Python and Blender

Q: Python and Blender

I'm having a problem installing python and blender. I install python for windows through the MSI file provided by Python.org (2.6.1 and 3.0). I then install Blender (2.48). When i fire up blender it gives me this mesege.


Checking for installed Python... No installed Python Found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.
So i go and check my environment vars and ofcorse the PYTHONPATH var is missing. so i set it up


Still nothing

I tryed again with python 2.6
Uninstalled everything, re-installed everything, setup the environment vars again.


and now i get


Checking for installed Python... C:\Python26\lib\site.py:150: Warning: 'with' will become a reserved keyword in Python 2.6
No installed Python found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.

Preferred Solution: Python and Blender

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Python and Blender


I think you did everything right. For me a practical solution was to install Python 2.5.2 besides the 2.6 installation. After you've done this, all you have to do is change the PATHs from PYTHON26 to PYTHON25 (also LIB etc.).
This worked for me in Vista 64x, but I think this is not a specific Windows 7 problem. I guess Blender2.48 just doesn't like newer versions of PYTHON. Let us see which version Blender 2.49 will use.

I was using Blender 2.49 without any problems with Windows Vista, but there seems to be a problem in Win7. When i load blender, i only see a black screen and a title bar. I do have python installed and do not get any error messages in the console window.

IMO, this is a VGA driver's issue. Tried updating them, but no changes. My card is Intel X3100. Has anybody tries to run blender with this video card in Win7?

Any help appreciated.

Hi, guys!

The great Duane G (aka SignalPunch) has created a DST file for the Blender logo before (http://forums.techguy.org/digital-photography-imaging/1074909-dst-file-blender-logo.html), but it has not a white background - so it doesn't work well on darker fabrics.

(Source: http://download.blender.org/institute/logos/blender-socket.eps)

I was wondering if somebody (could be SignalPunch himself, but I just didn't want to bother...) could create a version with the white socket around. That would be great! (And if it could be a little bigger, 4 inches or more, that would be just perfect!)

Thank you very much!

Just recently I discovered an open-source 3D editing program called Blender, basically like AutoCad Maya, which one of my friends uses. However I have had trouble finding help files that are free, like the program, to get me started on the basics. Has any one else had this problem and solved it? I know there is supposed to be a wikibook that I can download but I found it and there was no download button just several hundred links to locations in the online book.

I have been tinkering around with Blender, an open source 3d modeling/animation/etc program.

I followed a tutorial on YouTube and created animation and now I am rendering it.

It only gives me the option to use CPU or GPU to compute or render the image and animation.

Does it use only 1 cpu because I have 8. I also have a GPU. (I will put specs below)

The real question is: Is there some way to speed up the rendering process?
(can I assign a priority through task manager, or can I tell it to use more CPUs, or something)

Another question:
My computer sometimes seems to get bogged down while using Blender, like my CPUs are all maxed out. The other thing it does is the cursor will occasionally take off and go in its own direction, pushing ESC key will stop it, but it is weird. It only does this while operating Blender. I downloaded Blender from the official site.

Would it be OK to share it too, so others could use it?

A:help with blender animation program

You possily need to search for an updated graphics driver for your video card.
As this was ok with vista, it may be using a Windows 7 native video driver and not the best match for your video card (which you dont state make or model).

I've been using blender 3d for 3d and video editing work for some time now and all of the sudden it refuses to work.

I click on the blender icon from the start menu and blender tries to load. I get the dialog box and the main windows but then I get an error message before the rest of the UI loads.

Here is the information I get from the Microsoft error message, I hope it means something fixable:

EventType : BEX P1 : blender.exe P2 : P3 : 46eba424
P4 : blender.exe P5 : P6 : 46eba424 P7 : 00318667
P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000

C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER7bad.dir00\appc ompat.txt

The only things that I can think of that may have changed anything was:

1) the last time blender crashed I accidentally hit 'debug' instead of 'don't send'

2) I imported some mpeg files from a mini-dvd using the supplied software.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Blender refuses to start

Ok, I have it working again although I'm not exactly sure how. For posterities sake this is what I did:

Uninstall ed blender reinstalled blender, nothing. I installed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) and tried blender; nothing. I reinstalled blender again; nothing. I altered the 'blender' and 'blender foundation' directories and reinstalled blender and PRESTO, blender has started working again.

So at least for now I have been saved an extraordinary amount of time and effort. If anyone has similar problems I'd advise altering the names of these two folders because I think that that's what did it.

A:BSOD during graphical operations (Blender, but also YouTube videos)

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

Hello dee1-2-3 and welcome to BC.What is Python?Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme or Java.Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax. It has modules, classes, exceptions, very high level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing. There are interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk, Mac, MFC). New built-in modules are easily written in C or C++. Python is also usable as an extension language for applications that need a programmable interface.Unless you are doing some programming..............

Hi, i just started my csc 102 course in college and it was supposed to be C++. Instead of that, we're going to be learning python which was never done before according to the professor. His explanation was that we could learn more of python in one introductory semester course than c++. I agree with his reasoning, but i'm still somewhat saddened since i always saw c++ as a kind of king in programming and was hoping for the course to give me a better push into the language that i could achieve by learning myself, since every time i start to learn alone, after a while i start playing games and don't come back to it. I was wondering if python could be used to make high quality game engines that don't lack in performance to c++ game engines from which( as far as i know) all the great engines come from such as the Unreal Tournament Engine and the Crysis Engine.

Hello everybody,
I'm sure everybody here knows some Scripting language and have working knowledge. I need help with getting started to learn but i want to start with some project wide enough to help learn the language and understand the concpets of python. There are some other scripting languages i know about, for eg: perl, php but i'm interested in this one..dont know why???
Need help of someone who is actively working on it or has worked in the past and can throw some pointers here to get started.
I dont like the idea of reading pages and pages and then impementing something. The other way round is a much faster and better way.

Please post your replies soon... Thanks a lot!!

I have two versions of python installed:


The c:\Python27_x64 is in %path% and there's nothing in the 'set' command that mentions 26. When I run python from cmd.exe the 27 version is executed as expected. On the other hand, when I run python from win+R the 26 version is run. The path (when directed into a file) in both cmd.exe and win+R is the same.
Any ideas?


A:Different python is executed in cmd and win+R

Perhaps the 26 has an entry in the Prefetch folder? Try opening an Admin command prompt. Change directory (CD) to C:\Windows\Pefetch assuming Windows is installed on drive C:, then do "del *.*" and hit Enter. ( Make sure you are in C:\Windows\Prefetch before you delete all files!!! )

Try the Win+r and see if it does the same thing anyway. If it does, my theory is wrong.

Hello! I am learning Python, and I think I know enough of it to make a simple computer game. I do not want to do something too elaborate, but something along the lines of Pac Man, or any of those old 'retro' games with the 1981 arcade game graphics (The kind that remind you of 'River Raid', 'Pong', and 'Space Invaders'. Anyway, what kind of tools do I need to do this? Help is appreciated!
