Chapter 8 The Many-Headed Snake: Other Uses of Python in Blender Writing scripts is only one of the ways to exploit the power of Blender's Python integration. It is sometimes desirable to use Python's programming power without being subject to the restric- tions that come with running external scripts. For this reason, a variety of options exist that integrate Python even more deeply into the ordinary workings of Blender. Using these options, you can embed Python code directly into Ipo drivers, constraints, and nodes, or use script links to execute code automatically at specific times during the animation process. This chapter describes these methods.
