VPython is an extension for Python to allow easy, "pythonic" 3D. It is used in education for various purposes, including teaching physics and programming, but it has also been used by research scientists to visualize systems or data in 3D.

# Projects using VPython

[http://pw1.netcom.com/~ajs/ PyGeo] A dynamic geometry laboratory and toolkit by Arthur Siegel.

[http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rwchabay/mi/ Matter & Interactions] An introductory calculus-based physics curriculum for engineering and science students by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood (NCSU) that emphasizes a small number of powerful fundamental principles, incorporates the atomic nature of matter throughout, and includes an introduction to computational physics, in which students write programs in VPython to predict motion and to visualize fields. At this URL you'll find a bunch of VPython lecture demo programs useful in teaching introductory physics.

## Transparency

If you want to try something experimental, check out the "vpython-core2" module from CVS. Most of the objects in that module support transparency by setting color to an rgba 4-tuple, or by setting object.alpha to some value. However, there are some significant parts missing from vpython-core2, particularly scene.mouse. --2005-02-26 05:57 Jonathan Brandmeyer

Are there any news about supporting transparency in VPython ?
