So... Windows 8
I'm supposed to be the family's wizard with computers, yet I still can't find an answer for this one question. Source Filmmaker works best with Windows 7 or Vista, with 7 recommended. So, what 'bout Windows 8? I've seen few single posts about this, and it has apparently worked for some, but not for all. So, the question: is Source Filmmaker supposed to work with Windows 8?

I have windows 8, it stoped responding, I deleted the sessions folder and made a new one, then it worked again
(a LOT of people are going to want this way to fix SFM)

I installed Win 8 tha day it came out. I re-installed SFM and had NO problems with it or with any other steam related game...

That is good to hear. If the computer I am looking at does not drop in price there is a NICE 6-Core Asus on sale by $130 off. Only catch is it has Windows 8.

Downgrading to Windows 8? I thought 7 was good...

If anything, SFM is more picky when it comes to hardware.

Is downgrading free?

Only if you have the setup up disks.

SFM works fine on Windows 8.

I've been using Windows 8 and SFM since January, no problems... What is your situation and why do you think it's Windows8?

I am having a problem, when I load the map nothing shows up in primary viewpoint.
I've been using windows 8 and windows 8.1 and sfm worked fine on both.

It's not Windows 8. I've been using Win8 and 8.1 on 4 different machine and a tablet. SFM works fine on all, including the tablet.

Confirming that Win8 and 8.1 work fine for me.
