Question Just curious, but is this possible? - 07-23-2011, 02:51 AM

I haven't used Alice in a couple of years (lost flash drive, plus I wasn't using it much as is.), and I was curious as to whether you can use character models that are from non-Alice sources. Specifically from games using the Source Engine, such as Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, and Portal. I would also like to know if it is possible to use maps from these games as well.

I'm also asking this because I know that Source Filmmaker hasn't been released officially, and the method used to get it is apparently not very legal.

I have no plans to use them illegally, but the thought came to me upon finding my flash drive.

if you can find or produce the models yourself, and are able to convert them .ASE models, then yes, you can use them


If you are stuck on a project, check out the tutorials I made here at this link:

There are lots of tutorials on it so far, including some youtube videos, check it out

Or..

I own the games, and I figured out how to find models and such while searching for the "addons" folder in Garry's Mod.

So, all I would have to do is convert them?

Use Blender or Biturn, but since most games have a different engine for animating than Alice does, you probably might not be able to use them as you want to.

your best bet is to go to 3D warehouse or a site like blendswap to find the models so they are already in the proper format to be converteded from, try those types of websites to find your models then convert them
