If you happened to be one of the many people watching the Meet the Pyro short yesterday from Valve, you may have thought about creating your own short video in the game. While you may expect that it would take an incredibly powerful PC, you’ll be happy to know that you’re wrong.
Later this year, Valve will be unleashing the Source Filmmaker to the world. You’ll be able to capture and manipulate footage just like Valve did to make their numerous “Meet the” shorts. Best of all? It’s free.
Rather than try to explain exactly how it works, we’ve compiled their entire tutorial for you below. There’s quite a few videos to watch here, each detailing a different section of the Source Filmmaker, but the last video shows how it all comes together.
Continue viewing below for the Source Filmmaker tutorial.
What do you think about the Source Filmmaker? Are you planning on creating your own digital shorts later this year? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss Team Fortress 2 in our forums.
