This crossed my mind when I was bored at work today. I used to use a very simple movie making program called 3D Movie Maker, it is still very popular and has a big community for it. I think it would be cool to be able to create movies using the source engine. If you have played with 3D Movie Maker before you see how this could be done. If not, here's a basic idea: If you wanted a scene with two guys talking in a bar and then maybe sitting down you would select a option, lets call it "Actions > Walk". And you could then either manualy drag the selected charactor to the point where you would like it/him/her to go or use the feature as in Hammer set paths for the charactor to follow. Then you would select a "Sit Down" animation. Just the basic idea. What do you all think of somthing like this? I know this is totaly swaying from a FPS game, but I feel it would be a good use of the source engine.

Would be nice but require quite much coding. I think that it's very similar to 'Th Movies' game concept.

It could all be done in a map...but you would have to use console to do actions and such.
