Thanks for all this I've really been looking for SFM animating guides but focused more towards 18+ stuff. Hopefully soon you all will see my first animation(s) maybe around the end of this month at earliest.

This is super useful :D hopped right in and came up with this after about eight hours of reading and playing with the engine.

 

Of course not the finished project, and I'm getting better as I go. And this is my first time ever animating

Super thankies for making this~ Just got into SFM to make porn and hopefully this'll help me improve. 

Hey, good luck!

 

If you want my honest advise though;

 

I made this tutorial a while ago and SFM is pretty dated now. I'd personally recommend going with blender instead as cycles allows you so much more freedom with what you want to do as well as making it look visually pleasing to the eye. It's very easy to get started with blender and you can even use SFM models in blender. (Once you decompile them)

 

Bare in mind though that blender is pretty hard to learn/get the hang of, but once you know the basics it's pretty straight forward. Don't get me wrong, you can still make some nice stuff in SFM, but blender or any other 3d software will give you better results by far. (I pick blender because it's free and the majority of smut artists use blender.)

 

For comparison i'll show you a render that took me 10 mins to make in blender (That includes finding the model on sfm, downloading it, decompiling it, importing it to blender and adding the textures. I never used any fancy lighting, just a HDR studio image. The more artistic the person the better the results. The image below i would personally consider not very good since it was a very quick render with not many samples, but it does the job in this instance.) Also when you decompile the sfm model to blender it keeps it's bones so you can easily pose it, but they're FK bones so you'll have to either set up your own rig for animations (i.e learn how to rig a character and what not. (Blenrig is popular, but if you just want to get stuck in and rig the character using the already pre-applied bone weights you could just follow Lizendy's tutorials; Part 1 importing and texturing and Part 2 rigging (zero weight painting required as you'll be using the old weights already on the body to setup an IK rig.)))

and another render from SFM were i actually tried to be "artistic" and it turned out rather meh, i'd say.

The difference in visual quality between SFM and Blender is not even a question. (SFM is very old now, while blender keeps getting updated.)

 

You could still do SFM porn since you'll be learning animation and once you've learned animation you could easily transfer those skills to blender.

 

 

There are a few down sides to blender though.

 

1. No tutorials on animating bender porn at all. (None that i've seen/found.) This is why it may benefit you to start in SFM and then take what you learn about animation over to blender.

2. Rigging a character can be a pain and the weight painting is the worst. (Some people actually enjoy it! Psychopaths, i bet they enjoy fixing bad topology as well. xD)

If you go with Lizendys tutorials you shouldn't have to worry about this, but there are benefits to making a rig from scratch as you'll have a better and deeper understanding of how things work.

3. Blender can be confusing/hard to understand, but once you've got the hang of it, it's pretty easy and fun to mess with. Blender Guru and Gleb Alexandrov are your best friends here.

 

You could also take a look at a site called smutba.se. People upload their models there so if you're only interested in making some porn then you can just download someones rigged model and go ham with it as well as the discord has some very useful information in it, but be warned the people in there are not welcoming of people asking questions that are easily googled and will call you out on it in a not very polite way. I personally just watch and see what nice information i can gather like head hacking for example. Sorry for the huge rant.

 

Whatever you decide just make sure you're having fun since that's the most important thing, because if you're not having fun then what's the point?

 

If you need any help feel free to message me or reply here and i'll help the best i can. (Not so much with SFM as i've stepped away from it and moved onto blender, but the discord does have a sfm section in it if you need help.)

It's unbelievable to me sometimes, how many hours and how much effort we put into making porn.

That being said, thanks a ton for compiling this. Time to get busy! xD

All the links Don't work 

Please Fix it 

Some of the links still work for me. (Blame Tumblr requiring a login to view nsfw accounts. Also, r.i.p Tumblr.) I'd suggest just using Blender or any other 3D software as SFM is disgustingly outdated now and with a little extra work you could get way better results with any other 3D software.

is there any tutorial on how to make porn on blender

I was thinking about making one for a while, but never get around to it because there is so much. I moved to Blender years ago and have learned a lot. It'd all depend on what you want to do and would take a lot more work and effort than SFM to get things up and running, but once you have a model all rigged and with a nude body then you're golden and can do anything you like with her.

 

I'd suggest downloading this PDF and taking a read of it as it goes through pretty much everything. It doesn't go over everything exactly, like; different types of rigs to use, but it's very good;

 

BlenRig5:

By far the most popular and used by most people'

It's free with a quick start pdf guide on how to get started.

The real "step by step" tutorials of the creator going through the process of rigging a character up costs money though. (Monthly sub. You could pay for a monthly sub, download the videos and then cancel the sub.)

Pretty complex with lots of features.

 

Rigify:

Again, pretty common, would get the job done and some people use this to really make their own custom rigs with different features.

 

AutoRig Pro:

This is probably the "easiest" rig to work with, but it costs money ($40, I believe) FireBox Studio uses this rig option.

Not sure how share-able this is though because it's not free, so you wouldn't be able to share your rigged model with the community.

 

Whatever option you pick will always still require some fixing up.

 

 

Also, there are some already pre-rigged models people put up on smutbase as well as other things so you could just browse, download one and start making porn. (Obviously knowing how to use Blender would help you out greatly and I'd suggest starting with 2.8 if you are new as that is going to be the newest version and is a massive overhaul from the previous versions of Blender.)

 

In the PDF when you get to head hacking, you don't need to go to any other image editing software as it can all just be done in Blender texture paint with the clone brush set to value of 1 for a rough go around and then just lower the value gradually to get a better blend. This is assuming you're head hacking your own non-nude character into a nude character and for that, you'd either need Daz3D or use Build-A-Bod on smutbase, cut the head off, line it up with your character and head hack. The only issue with this is, it doesn't come with textures. You could also just download someone elses model that matches your characters skin tone and head hack that onto your desired head. Daz is free so you could use that, but then you'd need to decide what body to use. (Most porn you see currently uses the Gen 3 body from Daz.) The newest one is Gen 8 and people will probably move over to that one eventually. they are both free to download (Genesis starter pack or something like that.) You would probably have to pay for genitals though from renderotica.

 

There is still loads more that I could tell you, but the list would go on and on and on. Like I said, it's A LOT more effort, but the results at the end are way better in the long run instead of using the very outdated SFM.

thank you so much! I was lost and just kept googling and searching which SFMs id like to learn to make (some had bad tutorials but great models) until I finally came across this thread. saved me a lot of headache and im finally making headway with my learning to animate en-devour (which started 20 years ago when I was messing with Poser), thank you again! :)

The thought is appreciated but three of the videos will not load and everytime I go to that site, my browser opens 16 background tasks or so. There a chance you may have these uploaded elsewhere?

Thanks for this. Its been highly useful in my endeavor to give back rather than just view. and if you ever get round to making a tutorial to do it on blender id appreciate it very much
