What is the best Programming language to use for Graphics (Painting,Rendering..) in Qt ?
I am currently researching what language is best suited to develop graphic intensive user interfaces with Qt, particularly between C++ and python(PyQt, PySide). The applications will be for Audio/Image processing GUIs, so for example I need to be able to display waveforms and spectrograms at the least.
IN a waveform display I would like to be able to zoom-in and zoom-out in width, height, etc. .In a spectrogram for example be able to change resolutions and everything to the finest detail possible, and of course having a responsive fluid interface.
Does anyone have a suggestion to what language I should pursue for this kind of development? What are the advantages of one or the other.. Also if anyone can point me in the right direction to where I can know about this would be really appreciated.
I would use C++. It's a common language for such applications and it's performance is good at all. I don't know python that much. And another point is that there are many examples and resources for C++

Supporting jensen82. For spectrogram you can see what features provides "Qwt":http://qwt.sourceforge.net/, maybe it will facilitate your task.
Yes, Qwt, another good reason ;-)
