OpenGL support is widespread. OpenGL enables extremely fast 2D and 3D animation–including from Python. Via VisPy, OpenGL is easily used with Matplotlib-like syntax to make interesting 3-D plots from Numpy arrays. VisPy also has an advanced interface to OpenGL from Python.

Installing VisPy is easiest by:

conda install vispy
