Panda3D is a 3D engine: a library of subroutines for 3D rendering and game development. The library is C++ with a set of Python bindings. Game development with Panda3D usually consists of writing a Python program that controls the the Panda3D library.
Panda3D is unusual in that its design emphasis is on supporting a short learning curve and rapid development. It is ideal whenever deadlines are tight and turnaround time is of the essence.

Interesting,

I wish though it would have more c++ source sample code instead of all that python stuff.

Very weird license, by the way!

10. The Software is subject to United States export controls. The Software may not be downloaded or otherwise exported or reexported (i) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Libya, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country to which the U.S. has embargoed goods;

That seems very,.... evil.

I read over the license 3 times and i still do not know if it is :
    - Legal to distribute compiled comercially without paying?
    - Do you have to mention you used it?

In the main page it just sais it's a "free" license,.... that's not very verbose, does that mean one is allowed to do all of the above (as long as you're not in a country the US doesn't like), or what?

Correcting my ancient previous post here...

Panda is 100% open now and making great progress.

It's really great to use, both in python and C++.

The new maintainer of the FOSS release is putting more effort in the C++ documentation.
I am currently using the C++ side of things in a project, and it's been great to work with.
They just released 1.6.0 which has a lot of nice additions.

This is a really great engine. Whether you're wanting to make the next great mmorpg or you're just learning to code. (Disney's pirates mmorpg was made using this engine)
