Burning texture for models?
When you burn someonee in TF2, theres a burning kind of texture over them. How do I get that in SFM? http://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/3/30/Fire.png?t=20110623070232

I think it has something to do with particles.

There is a particle system, but I think Lambda is talking about the animated fire overlay that's on models.

It's possible to control it in SFM, but it's a bit compex. You first have to find the material (.vmt) files that are associated with the model you want the overlay on, and open them in notepad. Say for instance I want to activate the fire overlay on the RED Sniper. I have to go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\tf_movies\materials\models\player\sniper\, and open sfm_sniper_red.vmt, sfm_sniper_skin.vmt and hwm\sniper_head_red.vmt.

In all of the .vmt's, you need to do two things: first, if "$detailblendfactor" isn't 0, change it to that. If it already is at zero, don't touch it. Second, you need to comment out the whole BurnLevel proxy, by adding two slashes (//) in front of all of its lines, like so:
// "BurnLevel"
// {
// "resultVar" "$detailblendfactor"
// }
Save your changes. You can then launch SFM (if it was already, type mat_reloadallmaterials in the console to refresh the material definition).

Once you have the model you want to set ablaze, right-click its animation set > add override materials. Right-click it again > show in element viewer > model. Once in the element viewer, expand the materials array at the bottom, and look for the materials whose vmt's you messed with earlier.

Righ-click one of them > add attribute > float. Call it $detailblendfactor. Right-click the material again > create animationset for element. Click OK. Do the same for all the needed materials.

Back in the animation set editor, you should notice (a) new set(s) with the material name(s):

Which, when selected, give you a slider that controls the intensity of the fire overlay:

can you do this kind of thing with any model?

As long as all of those lines are present in the .vmt, it should work:
"$detail" "effects/tiledfire/fireLayeredSlowTiled512.vtf"
"$detailscale" "5"
"$detailblendfactor" 0
"$detailblendmode" 6
"Proxies"
{
"AnimatedTexture"
{
"animatedtexturevar" "$detail"
"animatedtextureframenumvar" "$detailframe"
"animatedtextureframerate" 30
}
}
As we saw many times, some models don't like detailblendmode 6 in SFM, so that rules those out. As far as I know there's no other restriction though.

hmmm.... interesting.
Thanks for this, it works like a charm. Just wanted to add that in the current version of SFM, making an animation set for the materials will not give you a $detailblendfactor variable. What you can do instead is edit the $detailblendfactor value right in the element viewer.
