July 31, 2013 - SFM Team
Has it been a year already? It doesn't seem that long ago that we released the SFM, helped host the second annual Saxxy Awards, or added the SFM Workshop. On the other hand, it feels like you, the SFM community have been around for much longer than a year, looking at the number and quality of images, videos, guides and workshop items that you have created so far!
Speaking of the workshop, one of the biggest hurdles in creating assets for the workshop has been the naming restrictions we added to ensure that users downloading those assets didn't run into naming conflicts. In retrospect, it's clear that we erred on the side of caution in that case, so we're removing the naming restriction for all future workshop items, leaving the task of keeping asset names unique up to the creators.
Check out the other exciting changes in this update, including the script extensions that allow you to create entirely new UI within the SFM!
So Happy Birthday to the SFM community, and of course to the SFM itself! We can't wait to see what you surprise us with next!
Here we’ll be sharing news, tips and tricks about all things relating to our storytelling tool, the Source Filmmaker. Because it’s the tool we use here at Valve to create our own movies, we will be adding features as we need them and then sharing them with everyone through Steam. You can join our official Steam Group to stay up-to-date with all the latest SFM news.
