Hi there! Welcome to the SourceFilmmaker deviantart group. We're one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) deviantart group dedicated to art made in the source filmmaker software.

What IS the source filmmaker, and how do I get it?

The Source Filmmaker is a 3d animation software running on Valves Source Engine, which powers games like the Portal series, Team Fortress 2, and Dota 2. Although intended for the use of team fortress 2 assets, users import content from other valve/source engine games, and tech savvy users can go further than that by porting content from other titles or creating their own original models!

The software is FREE for all users with a steam account and can be downloaded here. The only requirement is that Team Fortress 2 (also free) is instealled and ran at least once.

That said, in order to have an optimal experience, make sure your computer can at least run Team Fortress 2 at high to max settings at 1280x720 and with framerates ABOVE 60fps, as SFM runs (and renders!) at 720p by default. Beefier rigs are more than welcome to crank that up with the "-sfm_resolution 1080" launch option.

RULES (Follow them to prevent getting blocked)

:bulletred: We only accept content made in Source Filmmaker. That means Gmod/XNALara/Poser submissions won't be accepted. Editing your SFM picture in post production via photoshop/gimp/whatever is acceptable.

:bulletred: As of 26/8/15, Pony content will no longer be accepted, following the results of the community vote. Instead, consider sending it to SFM-Ponies!

:bulletred: We currently hold quality control into the group. Please refrain from submitting posters that have Stock/Valve animation sequences in them, grainy ambient occlusion, or poorly angled camerawork. If you're new to SFM, please check our tutorials folder and/or the useful links at the bottom. There's a VERY HIGH chance your submission will be rejected if it has any of the above

:bulletred:If your art is rejected, you can request for a reason in SUBMISSION REQUEST (click here to read how to do that). If you do, it's advised you follow that help the next time around. There may be rare occasions where art is accepted, but advice is still given out. It's still in your best interest to follow it. The staff here know how SFM works and how you can improve.

:bulletred: THE DOWNLOADABLE RESOURCES FOLDER IS ONLY FOR SUBMISSIONS PROMOTING A DOWNLOADABLE RESOURCE. Please stop submitting posters in there, it's a pain in the ass to remove them.

:bulletred: Any art containing sexual fetishes will be instantly rejected.
(how can people get pleasure with this anyways)

:bulletred: Hate pictures about [X] User will be denied. We won't promote hate against someone you dislike for [Y] Reason.

:bulletorange: There's a limit of uploads per day. Don't you fucking upload 10 pics in one folder. Give space to others, y'know.

:bulletorange: You can upload stuff made by people who don't have a da too, but please GET PERMISSION AND CREDIT those people.

:bulletyellow: HUMAN NUDITY/SUGGESTIVE will still be accepted as long as it doesn't break any of the rules and stays under da's standards. PUT A MATURE TAG anyways.
(Because humans aren't fucked up as humans with animal heads, right.)

:bulletgreen: Keep it cool.

I have a quick question. So, there's no Undertale section. Is there a specific reason for this? it's ok if, like, you just don't want to make one. I understand. I'd just like to know.

Excuse me, but I have a lot of questions regarding SFM. One of them involves games outside of TF2; I’ve seen some images with characters, props, or scenes with different games and such on DeviantART and occasionally YouTube. How exactly is this possible, if at all?

Need some assistance if possible: anyone got the Titanfall weapons available? The original uploader on steam took them down and I made the mistake of not migrating them beforehand. If anyone has all of them available to download that would be great.

Just asking...
Is it okay for you guys if you could add an "Anime" folder, just so that the "Others" folder would be a bit organized?

I am just suggesting.

Heya, so I wanna make an SFM animation, but I need some help.

I'm trying to add the song "gives you hell" to the animation. I converted the file to wav, put it in the right folder and everything, and yet the sound is completely silent when imported into SFM.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
