A Surprisingly Beautiful Valve Video

To date, most people have been using Valve's Source Filmmaker for comedic purposes, but let's remember, comedy is but one genre. So it's nice seeing this clip that's reminding us the tools can be used for more serious stuff as well.


This is amazing. The effects here rival those of all but the finest in professional pre-rendered trailers, so it's almost intimidating to think what people will be able to come up with when they really get a handle on the software.



I'm confused about Source Filmmaker... I thought it was a general animation suite or something, but so far all that I've seen of it has been TF2 characters doing things. Can you use the software for your own models and stuff, or is it that you're stuck with Valve characters/objects?
