Description

Currently, I am creating every single card using the Gimp, which is not very efficient, especially since each title card is created for each target language. I should have one object/material for each standard size text card and the texture image should be created on the fly for each piece of text, using a script to automatically input the text from files. Thus, I would only need to translate the content of each file.

man imagemagick

See the section "Character and String Drawing" in man gd.

#4

But gd is in perl and Blender uses python. Is there the equivalent of gd in python?

I will be using imagemagick!

Now, the question is: what format to use for the text files with the translations?
