Hello! I am argodaemon, best known for animating ponies in SFM (Source FilmMaker). While most my focus is on YouTube videos, DeviantArt is used as an output for shorter GIFs and pictures.

- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -

What program do you use?
I use Source FilmMaker. It is free for download on Steam.
Photoshop is used for GIF compilation and photo editing.
After Effects for video compiling and editing.
Speed Grade for color correction.
Audacity for audio work.

Do you take requests?
No. That is the easiest way to put it. I have done some before, and technically still do, but it is very rare and dependent on if it sounds like fun. If you send a request, do not expect a reply.

Can you make my OC in SFM?
This will always be a no. Please stop asking. I move ponies, not make them. :(

Can you critique my work?
I used to, but not anymore. It has become a bit excessive. Also, most people do not know what they are looking for from a critique.

Are you an animator?
Nope. Just picked up SFM back in early 2013 and just found out I am not too bad at it. No schooling or expected career. Just a hobby.

How can I support you?
First off, support is not "needed" and will not effect the content I make. Nonetheless, it still costs me quite a bit for software, hardware and especially time. I created a Patreon by request, or you can donate through PayPal. YouTube has also added the ability to donate, which you can find the link to on my YouTube's channels main page.

I'm surprised the three years you've learned a lot in the Source Filmmaker, I think you have to work the Pixar !

Hey Argodaemon! I really love your SFM animations. You're a really good animator.:)

I was wondering of you could help me answer a problem that's bugging me.
I want to get into Flash animation someday and make some action packed, story oriented movies, many of which are MLP based.:) However, I found a bit of a snag in my ideas.

Some of the action scenes I thought up of include some major camera movement. You could imagine how tedious drawing a moving background like that can be frame.by.frame. So I thought that if I learn some CGI rendering, I could probably model out some settings to animate my characters in, and maybe even add some interested 2d-3d combined effects as well.

This leads me to my question: If you yourself wanted to make your 3d scenes look like a 2d scene, is it possible to take a 3d background or character and render them to look more like the show? If so, how?

Within SFM, no.  Within some other 3D animation software, it may be possible.  It is not something I know enough about to be of much help, though.
