Fuse, SFM, and model creation
So, looking at the software currently in early access called Fuse seems like a good piece of software, albeit majorly expensive (50 buck normal pricing for fabrics). I was ready to buy it until I saw that it doesn't work with SFM, and that its software for animation lacks maps and is way too pricey. I was wondering if anyone here knows a good way to create models, that isn't a model replacement, but new one. Reading the ToS for SFM made me a bit sad to see that no valve assets can be used for profit (this doesn't include SFM, correct?). So I've been looking for a way to do Red Vs Blue kind of stories on youtube using SFM. I apologize if this makes little sense, really tired.
tl;dr Is fuse worth it, and is there a way to get its assets into SFM? What other programs (preferably through steam) can I use to make SFM models? Will I have to forfeit all profit if videos that have the opportunity to make money use SFM but no other valve models (maybe maps too)?
PS. Map making, how hard is it? I'm new to animation, 17 and SFM was my first software.
Any help is appreciated, thanks guys. Sorry for being incoherent, really tired after last nights all night homework.
