    From what I've seen, there's only been tutorials about making a door from the 1 prop, which is animated, and has both the "door" and the "frame" (I forget the name, I'm rushed for time and hamer is screwing with me, sorry). None of the tutorials explain how you make a door using the unanimated/whatever its called door. None of them will let me animate them (which is probably due to not having any, since the only one that animates as _animated in the file name), and I'm stuck, what do I do?

    You can make brush-based func_door with the door texture.

    You can make invisible brush-based func_door with unanimated door prop parented to it.

    Valve uses both approached in different areas.

    Not that i know of but its a very easy thing to do anyway. Much easier than the animated prop door.

    Just make the prop a prop_dynamic and set the door as its parent. Thats all, no tutorial needed

    You can also use ABS's prefabs which have the animated and unanimated in them.
