How to make a Movie

June 27, 2012 - Bay Raitt

Greets Beta Testers,

Since we gave out a few beta keys today, here's some video tutorials to get you started in the Source Filmmaker. Try to re-create the movie that I make in the tutorials. This will teach you the basics you need to know to start making your own movies in the SFM. The tutorials are designed to be seen sequentially and pick up where the last one left off.

Remember, you're in a beta so save often and report bugs.
