    ...is here!

    Also! Because today's new items contain some Meet the Pyro spoilers, we're gonna hold off on announcing those until the update’s ready later today.

    But! We are announcing something else RIGHT NOW: The beta release of the Source Filmmaker, the tool we use internally to make all of our "Meet the Team" shorts. You can check it out here.

    So glad they didn't reveal who the Pyro is. It doesn't matter who or what he is, just that he's INSANE.

    Only disappointment is that they used "Do You Believe in Magic" instead of original music.

    Am I the only one who is really creeped out by Pyro's prominent testicles in that screenshot?

    Now for a mod that replaces all the in-game textures and models with happy things.

    A bit like this I suppose.

    I wonder if they're going to release the assets from MtP into the game for use.

    I'd totally play a updated func_door with them.

    I thought it was kinda cute. Seems a bit of a throwback to the earlier style of meet the team videos, interview style instead of story style, but still, not bad.

    edit: also source filmmaker looks awesome

    Better than I could have hoped. Leaves the mystery and certifies him as a lunatic.

    Dunno if they could do it, but I like the idea of the first-person model for weapons and what you see being different from what other players see.

    Pyro sees the melee lollipop, everyone else sees a severed flaming head on a stick.

    I guess that would actually be no harder to do than the current system, though i was under the impression that they were changing to use the same model for both.

    I don't get it. How is what the pyro sees any different from what TF2 looks like nowadays?

    That doesn't even make sense in the context of visuals.

    Almost five years after the release of TF2, definitely five years after the old Source Filmmaker was leaked, we finally get it and it's a closed beta.

    I guess we should be happy Valve is still releasing functional tools at all, at this point, although I may take that back if it turns out it's not compatible with all their games.
