SFM models not appearing

So I was trying to install the Lara Croft Reboot model into SFM, so: I moved the models folder into Windows (C)/ProgramFilesx86/Steam/SteamApps/Common/SourceFilmmaker/game/usermod/models Then I moved the Materials folder into Windows (C)/ProgramFilesx86/Steam/SteamApps/Common/SourceFilmmaker/game/usermod/materials When I opened SFM, loaded a map, and tried to open the model, it didn't appear in the preview nor when I created it. I am new to SFM, and to modding, so I would be greatly appreciated if anyone could direct me to what folders/files go where and with any troubleshooting.

I ran into a similar problem yesterday. From my experience, the fix involves opening the .mdl file and making sure the filename corresponds to what you should see on the first line. Failing that, it may be a problem with the textures.
