I have been in the hope of finding a way to use awesome Anaconda Python in Blender in Windows 7 x64, as I was inspired by several articles including the one described here on why using Anaconda is advantageous. I have tried many suggested potential solutions, as summarized below, but unfortunately no success:
- Calling 3rd Party Python Modules in Blender Scripts
- Using 3rd party Python modules
- ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application. But the DLL's are there
I truly would love to be able to utilize Anaconda. I particularly want to be able to import many packages including
h5py for reading HDF files, which are larger than 2GB. Because of the C library dependencies of
h5py, it is impossible to build them in Windows from source. Could the community help me find a practical way of using
blender-2.77a-windows64? I don't mind completely replacing Blender python with Anaconda (although I copied them in blender folder and did not work).
