Kringle is glowing ?
Sore Eyes showing white iris when there's a light ?
Concierge showing fire texture ?

Everything you need to know, all in one place !
Before we start
You need to get yourself a VTFEdit, Notepad++ works too. I recommend VTFEdit for starters.

When I say 'comment out', it means adding two slashes // before the text on that certain line.
If you comment out a line, Source Filmmaker will ignore that line. For instance,
// Can't touch this.
Source Filmmaker will not read this line because it has two slashes.
That's all you need to know, because in this guide there's a lot to comment out, so get about it.

Also don't forget this command.
//"$detailblendmode" 6
//"$detailblendmode" 6
Just paint it gold lol.
//"$detailblendmode" "6"
//"$basetexture" "models\player\items\all_class\qc_flask_liquid"
//"$selfillum" "1"
"$selfillum" "0"

This guide needs to grow
If you have a solution to fix certain texture of the model, please share and I'll include it into this guide with your credit.

Other than that, any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks, and have fun.

Hey Sync. :] thanks for the material fixing help. Just wanted to ask about the Merc's Mohawk, or 'Lil moe' in sfm. I comment out the $basetexture line, and it seems to work fine, however when I add a light, it just goes completely black. Please help

Then it isn't the material issue.

So for "$colortint_tmp" "[0 0 0]",you put the zeros insted of [165 43 32]" on //"$colortint_tmp" "[165 43 32]"?

For me, the Kringle is invisible, and the Professor's Pineapple is a pure, godawful bright white.

Weird... it worked fine for me. I'll experiment a bit more and report back.
Either way, thanks for making this guide =)
