Introducing the Source Filmmaker trailer

The Source Filmmaker (SFM) is the movie-making tool built and used by Valve to make movies inside the Source game engine. "Because the SFM uses the same assets as the game, anything that exists in the game can be used in the movie, and vice versa," says Valve. "By utilising the hardware rendering power of a modern gaming PC, the SFM allows storytellers to work in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get environment so they can iterate in the context of what it will feel like for the final audience."
