From 04/12/2021 onwards I'll only be providing fixes for this tool, so I can focus on other projects.

Thank you all for your support and dedication so far.

Xala's Movie Helper helps you with your Machinimas!

There are some difficulties to create movies in Garry's mod... Both people who are already filming for a long time as those who have just started know that some important commands are simply not listed at all and that some things tend to mess up the scenes with no nice way to avoid. Because of this, the masters of the universe told me to start doing this tool. Let's try to make our lives somehow easier.

With XMH you can

About languages

If translations are available, the tool changes its language according to the game, otherwise English is selected.

But you can force it with the following command:

xmh_forcelanguage "options"

The current "options" are:

pt -> Portuguese from Brazil
en -> US English
game -> Tries to use the game's language


For support and testing:

Francis, Pepeu, Matsilagi, HomemCamisinhaCósmica, NickMBR, TaBoo, BombermanMaldito, LuanGames, Reborn, Phillipe, Crazze, VirusSSj5, Qualee2, Magnum and many more.

The only problem I have with this addon is sometimes the shadows stop updating regardless of my settings even on SV_Cheats 1
Otherwise an essential addon for any aspiring animator

can you make unchecking "Physgun effects" also hide the halo? because it says it hides it but i can still see the blue glow and the only way to hide it is to hide current world/view models but that disables viewmodels and then they come back when i scroll through my inventory again and it inverts the checkbox
