VCD Blocking Tool

The VCD Blocking Tool is an unreleased in-game tool that appears to be related to creating simple choreography scenes in-game.

It was mistakenly released during the 2007 Team Fortress 2 beta, though nobody seems to have got it working before the whole tools system was deactivated and it is incompatible with the current build of the engine.
