Shade programming information in English?
« on: December 01, 2010, 12:36:13 PM »
Hello all,

 Has anyone seen any shade programming info in English? I've been looking at the Japanese Shade site but my Japanese is not very good.

 Or, can anyone recommend a good Japanese-English technical dictionary as I'm having some trouble with the computing terms.

Hi Stephan.
 You are a star!

I have a copy of Shade 8 on my old windows computer but I didn't think to look at it. Duh. Looks like it'll be a good start.

Thanks.

I've done some experimenting in Shade with python, and it works quite well. Now, I'm a complete newbie in python, but the only thing that seems not to work "out of the box" is the print function. Shade seems to prefer using dialogue boxes.
I'm doing as my first project a script that enables to import camera tracking into Shade. In theory, it is not so difficult, I just need to know what instructions to use! :)

For those learning Python (I am!) here are two ebooks that may be handy.
Both are free to download or can be bought as paper books if you wish.
I have tried them both. The electronic formats are available in several languages.

1, 'Dive into Python'
This is good for experienced coders who are learning Python. It's concise and concentrates on using the language. It does not try to teach how to program.
Find it here

http://diveintopython.org/

2, 'Python how to think like a computer scientist.'
 This is for non coders and teaches both how to write programs and how to use python.
A good first coding book for anyone I think (fun too, been years since I used turtleworld!).
Find it here

Hope this may help someone out there.

btw, I was mistaken in my previous post. It is the input function that seems to hang Shade. The print command works just fine.
I'll check out the links you posted Bowring, thanks!

That's great!
 Haven't been here for a while as I've been hitting the Japanese and C at the moment.
It's hard work.
