Summary

In this chapter we looked beyond 3D and rendering and saw how to make life happier for a Python developer and artist alike by providing some scripts to help in some common housekeeping tasks by extending the functionality of the built-in editor with regular expression searches and version control and showed how to save valuable rendering time in some situations by using Psyco. Specifically, we learned:

  • How to list and archive assets such as image maps
  • How to publish a rendered image automatically with FTP
  • How to extend the functionality of the built-in editor with regular expression searches
  • How to speed up computations using Psyco—a just-in-time compiler
  • How to add version control to your scripts with Subversion
