Our friends over at Mixamo have been busy adding SFM support to Fuse, their character creation tool on Steam. Read more about the new SFM export feature, watch the tutorial, and see how SFM community members lent their expertise to the folks at Mixamo for this update!
We haven't been completely idle ourselves, and after seeing multiple reqeusts for help on how to make characters run along animated paths instead of in a straight line, we've updated Import Sequence to make this easier. We've added an option "Root Drives Pose Params" to the Import Sequence dialog that allows you to animate the rootTransform of your character, and the SFM will figure out how to animate the move_x and move_y pose parameters to make the character animate along that path. Don't forget that the Steady preset is a great way of smoothing out motion speed while keeping the path intact, and have fun making guys run in circles!
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.
