I want to work in Source FIlmmaker but I don't want it to show up in my Steam profile's recently played games list.Is there a way to bypass this (a non-steam SFM or any other method)?
Don't bother; If anybody asks, tell them you're making sfm porn and they probably won't believe you. If they say "really?" tell them No.
>>549121And then they see 30 hours logged on it and realize maybe you were telling the truth
>>549120Just make a new steam profile to use for your porn creating.Im assuming sfm is free (havent used it desu).As long as its installed on your computer it should work across profiles. If it needs assets from other games and shit like gmod, I think that will work cross profile too.If anything just do what the other anon said and just lie. Animation takes a long time, making porn or not. Just say you're making a short or something.
>>549126Why would you think this is an indication of making sfm porn? Do you think porn is the only thing sfm is used for?
>>549120are people actually worried about this, like are sfm porn artists worried about their work affecting them?
>>549120I have 400 hours logged on mine. Wanna know how many pornos I made with it? 0 Because fuck SFM. I just left it open for a few days. Nobody gives a shit. It's not like you're gonna be good at it for at least a year anyway, if ever because very few are. Did I mention SFM sucks ass?
>>549120Say you'Re making a friend a Pony OC. Or FNAF OC.
>>549120Also set it to open without Steam, genius.
>>549120I have 50 hours logged into SFM. Nobody has ever asked me about it because nobody cares. I only ever used to to practice porting and so I could decompile source models.
If you're too concerned, maybe you could simply create a separate account that you can use without any friends at all.
If you Google it then you'll find this ridiculous guide.https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=612752835
>>549120Is dat some Fara?
>>549120Make a command line -nosteam at your sfm shortcutlog out steam, start your new command line shortcut, have fun making porn.
>>549120just make some silly short tf2 stuff and link that on your steam profile and everyone will just think that's all you use it for.
>>549120Just use blender instead and make a superior product.
>>549295>>549701Show us your films, or did you guys just wasted your time?
>>549702N-no, t-too embarrassed!
use sandboxie and run a separate instance of steam with a different accountI did this for the same reasons and it worked just fine, eventually though I got bored of SFM because it's so limited
>>549132>Im assuming sfm is free (havent used it desu).>As long as its installed on your computer it should work across profiles. If it needs assets from other games and shit like gmod, I think that will work cross profile too.Yeah, it's not only free but assets are stored in sfms installation file, so unless you move to another drive or something everything will be picked up.Alternatively you can set something like idlemaster to run three completely empty processes constantly and automatically. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=612752835
So I want to make quality SFM porn like ellowas or pewposterous, the thing is I have never done animations. So any tutorials or recomendations?
>>549734>Ellowas>SFMValve uploaded a pose to pose animation guide on their source filmmaker channel, and the tutorial files are actually included in SFM by default (I believe they're in tf_movies>element>session). Consider going through those.https://youtu.be/iEz7TslI-fshttps://youtu.be/7Gk0K_wwCdIhttps://youtu.be/khuUr84Tvsc(the interface is slightly different as this was before the scaling update, but everything still applies).Walk cycles are also a good place to start with animating. https://youtu.be/bE-jakm9mcQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUvTEPw3FAkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Frl4pstcXA
>>549736Thank you :^), and sorry I know ellowas uses Maya
>>549734That gif>My dick
OP nobody gives a fuck. If someone knows SFM makes porn, they probably watch porn and don't care. Most normies will just think sfm is video editing software or something. Who the fuck cares?
>>549734>like ellowasmaya>or pewposterousblenderout of all the SFM animators, you picked the ones who pretty much don't even use the program.Also pewposterous is a shit animator.
>>549734You cannot learn Animation :(
>>549765Why is pewposterous shit?
>>549789He/she(?) isn't shit, he's just a shit animator. His models/textures and lighting look fine, but he isn't that great at animating. Also I believe his models are just modified daz genesis models, no?His renders look okay, but looking over this tumblr, I can pretty much count the keyframes in each gif. It's all too stiff.Compare his animations to someone like leeteRR(whenever he puts effort into his animations again), ellowas, or noname55.The difference is pretty apparent.But of course, in reality people don't follow 3d porn artists for their technical animation prowess, so this is a moot point.
Instead of another fucking porn thread, can we post some decent SFM workshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqSyibSPq5whttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aLjwVVNq4shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPexIWhB_50
I would be more concerned about my friends thinking I do mlp shit than porn.
You're not that significant, no one gives a shit. Do what you want
>>549734Ellowas uses Max, Maya, Zbrush and Redshift. I've talked to him in the Twitter DMs a couple times, cool guy.
i love sfm bro
>>549121This is what I did and nobody gives a shit.>>549120Just set Steam to offline if you really care.
