Py-Lepton is a high-performance, pluggable particle engine and API for Python. The engine is designed to be very flexible and does not rely on any other libraries directly. You can use it either with OpenGL (via pyglet or PyOpenGL), or with pygame by selecting the appropriate renderer. Examples are provided using pyglet and pygame. Note that this is in an alpha state, so expect the API to change somewhat in future releases.
spriteconv stitches several individual still images into a single image with all the components side by side, arranged into a specified number of rows and columns. Such output images are typically used in 2D video games to realize the various states of animation for a particular graphical element, known as a "sprite".
Kate is a codec for karaoke and text encapsulation for Ogg. Most of the time, this would be multiplexed with audio/video to carry subtitles, song lyrics (with or without karaoke data), etc, but it doesn't have to be. Moreover, the motion feature gives Kate a powerful means to describe arbitrary curves, so hand drawing of shapes can be achieved. This was originally meant for karaoke use, but can be used for any purpose. Motions can be attached to various semantics, like position or color, so scrolling or fading text can be defined.
