Why does my camera not move sometimes in the viewport?

The camera might be animated. For more information, see "The scene camera and the viewport," in Cameras overview.

I exited game mode with Alt+Tab , how do I get my mouse pointer back?

You have to exit game mode with F11 before you can move your mouse pointer in movie mode.

Why does my animation stop too soon?

You may need to make your shot longer. For more information, see Manipulating shots.

How can I move a gun to the position of a character's hand?

Lock the gun to the hand, use the Zero preset on the gun's animation, and unlock the gun. For more information, see Working with locks and List of procedural presets.

How can I make a gun follow a hand's existing animation?

Lock the gun to the hand, use the Playhead preset on the gun's animation, and unlock the gun. For more information, see Working with locks and List of procedural presets.

How can I get my custom models and maps to work with the SFM?

If you want to use custom models or maps with the SFM, recompile them first. This includes any models or maps from Team Fortress 2, or any other Source game. For information about compiling models, see Compiling a model. For information about compiling maps, see Saving and Compiling.
