So my goal is to create some NPC animation like Umpa did with his dance animation pack. Basically I know how to get his animation work with almost all models (including Gman, Alyx and Eli which he said it wouldn’t be possible without recompiling the model). Now I am trying to create my own custom animation.
I looked through Source SDK folder and found this human_sdk folder, with bunch of SMD files. My question is where should I start? Which *.smd should I use? And does it will works on all Valve models (or at least HL2 citizens, because most custom NPC are based on it)? FYI I am planning to use Blender for animation, I found some tutorial that helpful.
