Yes, you can use Dota 2 characters in SFM. Be advised that they are almost double in scale to most of the other content used in SFM. (So if you have a scout standing beside a female hero from Dota 2, the scout will look like her toddler son.)

There is a simple rig available and it does work on most of the Dota 2 Characters (It doesn't work on some of the minor characters)

The rig is available here:

You have to install Dota 2 assets like any other custom content to SFM. You can either create a folder under the main ..\sourcefilmmaker\games folder and add the folder to your gameinfo.txt file, or extract the models, materials, sound and particles to your usermod folder.

Dota 2 assets are not stored in a .GCF Game Cache file in the main ..Steam\steamapps folder, they are stored in .VPK files (pak01_dir.vpk) found in the ..\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota folder.

VPK files are accessible by GCFScape.

See this as an example on how to add it to your usermod folder:

That is not working really, this Source Filmmaker is ♥♥♥♥... Why Valve couldn't do it better and just place Dota2 files in there ... Anyone could help me ? I used some tutorials and that jus doesn't work for me ...
