I got Source Filmmaker to make some animations for Portal 2. I followed a guide to extract files from the game and use them, but whenever i try to load and models, I just get this error message:
Document was not opened because it does not exist:
(File Name).dmx
If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, that would be great.

where did you put your Portal 2 Models? What is the folder path?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\portal2. I made the portal 2 file. Oh, and there are files for models inside the portal2 file.

ok, rename your Portal 2 folder to something like P2 then in your game\usermod folder open the gameinfo.txt file. Where is says:


Game |gameinfo_path|.
Game tf_movies
Game tf

... etc

Add right after left4dead2_movies

Game (the name you change portal2 to.)

Make sure it's inside the curly brackets.

Close SFM and restart it... You should now find your models for Portal2

You can narrow your search down by selecting the (whatever) you renamed the Portal2 folder to.

If your models are invisible or full of black and pruple squares then you haven't done the whole process properly (ie copying the .dx90.vtx files to dx80.vtx or the models and materials are not quite in the folders they need to be in.)

Watch this vid on adding custom content without using usermod

Okay, but when I tried loading a map, it just said "No .bsp files".
