I didn’t want to like Python. I’m still not sure that I do. But I have to admit that it is starting to grow on me. I’m beginning to get used to its goofy ideas about whitespace. And its double-underscore-emblazoned special identifiers are starting to hurt my eyes less.

I have been learning to use Blender. I can’t count the number of times in the past I had started the application, messed around for a few minutes, and then closed it in frustration. But a few days ago, I got it to do something I wanted.


So I’ve continued to play around with it. And, slowly, I think Blender is managing to bend my will to its own.

Of course, it wasn’t too long before I needed to use the VRML exporter. And I found that it didn’t play nicely with meshes to which the “Bevel Center” script had been applied. So, a few hours of staring at the export script (in Python, like a significant chunk of Blender’s functionality) and asking around on #blendercoders later, I had a fix.

And now I know some Python.
