Which is better for what?. I heard you can animate with Gmod as well so I'm just curious. Can you guys explain me the difference between them? - would be nice.
"kynore" said ...Animating in Gmod is possible, but more time consuming as you're going to have to pose your characters for every frame manually, or create some sort of contraption that moves the models. You can also use Kinect, but good luck with that. It's not a program built for posing, it's a sandbox game. I personally find it more useful for attaching rockets to props and making them spazz out in the physics engine. Last time I checked it was priced at $10. SFM is in my opinion way easier for both posing and animating as it's built with that purpose in mind. It contains post processing effects that are not present in Gmod and importing models is way easier. There are many tutorials available on how to use it. Unlike Gmod, you don't need to build physics models for your models in order for them to work as ragdolls so that will save you a lot of time if you want to import custom models. It's also completely free. XNALara is pretty much limited to posing. It has a large database of models available. For optimal render quality, you will usually have to export your scene to a different program like Blender or 3ds Max so it doesn't really stand on its own. Also completely free.
I already figured out how to convert any 3D models into acceptable format for SFM.
"kynore" said ...If my knowledge of Ren'Py is correct, it shouldn't matter where you get your images or animations from. If you're familiar with Python scripting, you'll want to know that you can use custom Python scripts in SFM to manipulate many aspects of your scene.
I'm working currently with renpy so I'm looking for the best application for me.
"kynore" said ...Stick with Flash for that. SFM is a 3D animation tool. It only allows for manipulation of objects in 3d space. For drawings you probably want a 2D tool like Flash.
Question besides: I'm drawing/coloring some stuff also and I'm wonder if i can animate these also with SFM. Is it possible?. Normally you have to use flash or something like that, but I've no experience with it. If you know better alternatives, i would be really glad to hear that.
