In addition to releasing the Meet the Pyro video, Valve revealed Source Filmmaker, a movie-making tool the company is releasing for everyone to use. The recent Meet the Pyro video was created using this software.

"The goal of the Source Filmmaker  was to develop a story telling tool that allowed us to create computer animated movies more efficiently, and with greater creative freedom," said Bay Raitt, designer at Valve. "Over the past five years, we've produced more than 50 animated shorts with the SFM.

"The Source Filmmaker will allow our community to create their own movies in Team Fortress 2 and in their own Source SDK-created mods."

Source Filmmaker is currently in closed beta and will be released on Steam for free later this year. Head over to the official website to learn more.
