    In Source Filmmaker or some other program? If it is SFM make sure you have sv_cheats set to 1.

    Ok, here's what you do (@swampie):

    1. Open IDLE (Python GUI)
    2. Click File->New Window
    3. Copy the code into this 'Untitled' window
    4. Click File->Save As...
    5. Browse to the directory you extracted the materials folder from the GCF to
    6. Click 'All files (*.*)', then choose 'Python and text files (*.py, *.pyw, *.txt)'
    7. Type 'lowerVTFVersion.py' into the File name box (no quotes)
    8. Click Save.
    9. Click Run->Run Module
    10.The IDLE window will reselect and tell you what directory it will affect. Confirm this is correct, then press enter.
    11.Sit back and wait.

    Really simple. Changed 1738 / 4479 files for me.

    I'm just about to try running some maps with this, but that should be it.

    As it turns out, this doesn't seem to work favourably with player models:



    Or demo's grenades. Might apply to soldier's rockets, too (haven't tested that yet).

    However, it's working great for buildables and maps!


    Oh, a problem I'm encountering (unrelated): Every so often it stops letting me change class/team, which forces me to reload the map to fix. Is there something I could be doing that's causing this?

    It seems you didn't extract the models and materials to your SFM installation folder. Do that again and then change their version.

    I managed to break it again!



    I've seen floating hands in other people's videos, but never quite as bad as this.

    Anyway, problems so far:
    [list][*]Buttons to change class/team stop working[*]Tools mode stops responding after clicking Browse when trying to save posters (can still run around in game if I feel like it). This seems to suddenly fix itself, not sure why.[*]The first few seconds of the first recording don't take - I can't scrub back to them.[*]The usual multi-doors/items deal.[*]Round timers are getting annoying, as are respawn timers (to a lesser extent).[/list]Overall it's neat to use, but still clearly a beta product.

    Also, thanks for the link Ukuku. I'll be looking to install that shortly.

    [list][*]Buttons to change class/team stop working - Strange, I've never had or heard of this problem. Try jointeam blue/red, and join_class?[*]Tools mode stops responding after clicking Browse when trying to save posters (can still run around in game if I feel like it) - I used to have this bug, no idea what fixed it though.[*]The first few seconds of recording don't take - I can't scrub back to them. - The recording only starts after the four beeps, incase you've been recording before they end.[*]The usual multi-doors/items deal. - Unfixable, AFAIK.[*]Round timers are getting annoying, as are respawn timers (to a lesser extent). - ent_fire team_round_timer pause[/list]

    Thanks for the quick response!

    [list][*]That works, though it requires manually using kill to take effect (for team changes at least). Didn't realize there were commands aside from changeteam and changeclass, so thanks![*]I guess I'll just go with default save locations.[*]I didn't even notice the beeps, so that fixes that problem![*]I was just thinking about the spawn door thing - assuming that you have only one person who's supposed to control the door, couldn't you use ent_fire in all the other recordings to force the doors open? Or to delete them, along with the extra pickups? Not ideal, but better than nothing.[*]I could have sworn I had the ent_fire one in my autoexec - oh well, another problem down![/list]
    Anyway, continuing testing.

    To some people talking above me. To fix the multiple doors/medkits, everything, you have to animate them away or untick record world, but then the player model won't show up either.
    Btw the recording does start as soon as you enter the game, also before the beeps have sounded, just pull the timeline thing back a little.

    This is a revolutionary week for Source Film Maker.

    Modern maps and skins, dynamic lighting, how to move a camera without a person and fluid animation.

    Fluid animation is quite VERY simple and cheap.

    1. High light the area you want to animate in (might want to leave an extra second or two)
    2. Select a bone
    3. Select the manipulation tool
    4. Play the clip, and as it is playing, move the bone. It will record the movement
    5. Smooth it and enjoy. :V

    No. It can't be done in real time.

    It's not really motion blur, it's frame blending. It basically takes (say you have it set to 32 sample) 16 frames before the current frame, and 16 frames after the current frame and blends it all into one.
