    Fuck. I recorded like 60 instances of myself running through CP_Well, and rendered one of many shots, but the fucking SFM crashes when I try to open the save file :emo:

    I'm pretty sure that's only available in DX10 or 11. In Crysis you can force just about every Very High setting while in DX9 if you use CVars, EXCEPT object motion blur.
    Rated bad reading.
    Crysis on DX9 has got object motion blur:

    As far as I know Crysis' per-object motion blur is one of the last layers of post-processing, which works by querying the current vectors of movement, then blurring where it is needed (hence the possible artefacts). It's not frame blending or anything

    So i suppose no one's found a work around for the vtf errors yet?

    I can only guess they changed the vtf format since the beta?

    i figured that, but its something to do with how the textures are coded, so i thought you might be able to change something in the vtf file to make it work.

    Even though I want this terribly badly, I think I'd rather wait for Valve to release it properly. They obviously have a non-buggy version for in-house use.

    To get:

    1. Find TF2 Beta
    2. Load the Tools mode
    3. Profit

    1. To use: Ctrl + L to load a map
    2. Press the record button to record some actions.
    3. Do Step 2 as many times as you'd like.
    4. Click the Active Camera/ Work Camera button to take control of the camera.
    5. Place camera.
    6. Trim timeline down to properly record the shots.
    7. Crank the motion blur and/or depth of field.
    8. File > Export > Movie > change the renders settings to your liking.
    9. Find something to do for a while because rendering takes forever.

    So, this works only for TF2, correct?

    As in, it would be impossible to make a film for other games using this?

    So I made the shortcut.
    "C:\Program Files\Team Fortress 2\hl2.exe" -game tf -applaunch 440 -window -noborder -novid -tools

    Using that, after opening the shortcut nothing happens. When I take out those startup commands, I get this:

    Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'hl2'. Check your -game parameter or VCONFIG setting.

    And I have to run RUN_TF2.exe to get it working, but I can't add the startup commands to that.

    My god can this program get ANY MORE BUGGIER? I'm trying it out. Also how do I place the camera on the timeline? Also is there any progress bar when exporting? Mines just has looping sound. And it says not connected to p4 server. And it says 100% done even though it's still stuck.

    Right click on the viewport and click Progression Refinement Settings. You can't control where the DOF is focusing though.

    Put 'r_sfmfulcrumdof 1' in the console, and it gives you some noticable DOF (again, you can't control the focal point), but it's kinda pretty.

    Looks good. Did you render an AVI or TGA's? Rendering TGA's sometimes fixes the sound issues.

    I rendered .tga. When I try recording why do I start at where I left off? I was originally going to make a scout rush starting at base but after I press ESC and recorded again it recorded when I was on the point and not at the spawn.

    Made a tutorial for anyone who's just getting into it. Covers the basics of recording and rendering.


    Two more jumbo renders, too:

    Oh god you could pass that off as a fake Meet the Medic screenshot.

    As far as I know, you can only turn down the number of passes. Maybe if you turn up the frame rate when you render the poster (try 30 or like 48 or something).
