vector and particle effects

P: n/a

I'd like to experiment a little bit with vector graphics in python.
When I say 'vector graphics' I don't mean regular old svg-style. I
mean vector game style as in simulation of vector beam drawn graphics.
If you still don't know what I'm talking about, see Grid Wars 2
(http://gridwars.marune.de/) or Battlezone
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlezone).

Anyway, I need help choosing a module or modules to support this.
Would pygame support this or should I try pyopengl? Or is there a
better module for this?

Any tutorials for the basics would be GREATLY appreciated.

Sorry for the double post. Google groups was being stubborn.

I'd suggest PyOpenGL because it'll be a *lot* faster. Something like
gridwars won't be possible in pygame.

Panda3D is pretty good http://www.panda3d.org/ . It is very well
documented and it comes with many examples.

There is also pygame.
