Text and Image Rendering

Don't mind the mess!

We're currently in the process of migrating the Panda3D Manual to a new service. This is a temporary layout in the meantime.

Panda includes support for easily rendering dynamic text onscreen or in the 3-d world. It supports full use of the Unicode character set, so it can easily render international languages (including Asian languages, when used with an appropriate font).

There are three interfaces for creating text, depending on your requirements: the TextNode, which is the fundamental text-rendering class and serves as the implementation for the other two, OnscreenText, a simple high-level wrapper around TextNode, OnscreenImage, the same as OnscreenText but now for images, and DirectLabel, which integrates with the rest of the DirectGUI system.
