Valve Releasing Source Filmmaker Tool

Are you a fan of the “Meet the Team” shorts that Valve’s released? I’ve found myself watching these short films over and over again, and I’ve always been amazing about how they’re able to make these films by just using the Source engine. But what if I want to make my own short films with the Source engine? How do I go about doing such a thing?

Well, if you want to make your own films now using the Source engine, then I’ve got some good news for you! Valve announced yesterday that they will be releasing the Source Filmmaker, in honor of the release of the “Meet the Pyro” film, the last of the Team Fortress 2 “Meet the Team” series. And while an official date has not been announced at this time, you do have an opportunity to sign up for an SFM beta key, giving you the opportunity to start cranking out movies.

I’ll admit, I’m not exactly a creative genius. This isn’t exactly a tool that I’ll be using very often, as I tend to have quite a lot going on at any one time. But, with that being said, I’m really excited to see this new tool being released, because lets face it, while some movies made with Garry’s Mod are hilarious, you can’t exactly make a movie that requires anything requiring subtlety, or drama. Not that people will be making those kinds of movies with the SFM anyway!
