This module serves as a container to hold the global
ShowBase instance, as an alternative to using the builtin
Many of the variables contained in this module are also automatically written
builtins module when ShowBase is instantiated, making them
available to any Python code. Importing them from this module instead can make
it easier to see where these variables are coming from.
Note that you cannot directly import
base from this module
since ShowBase may not have been created yet; instead, ShowBase dynamically
adds itself to this module’s scope when instantiated.
The root of the 2-D scene graph used for GUI rendering. Unlike render2d, which may result in elements being stretched in windows that do not have a square aspect ratio, this node is scaled automatically to ensure that nodes parented to it do not appear stretched.

globalClock= <panda3d.core.ClockObject object>¶
The clock object used by default for rendering and animation, obtained using
A dummy scene graph that is not being rendered by anything.
