How easy is SFM to use?
I have zero programming knowledge.

I have no experience in animation.

What I do have is lots of free time (2 week vacation), and some serious dedication to learn.
Is this program easy to learn and use?

TY

It is easy, once you watch the official valve turtorials. The only real problem is ideas..... all the best of luck in the futre!

It can be easy, if you're willing to learn. Personally, I found it very hard to use and watched the Valve tutorials atleast four times each. However it does make a difference if you have some sort of filmmaking background in my opinion, it helped me atleast.

The only thing I find difficult is ideas. That is the problem with all medias of film because you need to work out how you want everything to work out. I quess having a background in film would help in that aspect.

I actually come up with way too many ideas which forces me to really prioritize them so that I'm not trying to animate 10 different videos at once. Completely the opposite for me.

I meant ideas HOW to animate it. Like, how should the camera and the character move to follow the story I want etc. That is what I meant.

Also, knowing the software inside and out will help you to know whether an idea will work or not.
