The full potential of the tool came into light with the release of The Orange Box, and esspecially with the release of the Meet the Team shorts for Team Fortress 2. Since then, the tool has matured with a complete interface overhaul built in QT, and given its own engine branch for further development.
Before the tools official release to the public, Team Fortress 2 used a watered down version of the tool called the Replay Editor. However, arbitrary camera angles were possible, like tracking the actions of other players in action at the time. Replay incorporates the ability to upload completed videos to YouTube.

It differs from other movie making tools in that you can re-use assets and events from the game world in your productions, It merges the complete workflow of movie creation, editing, motion capture and post processing effects into one system.
Source Filmmaker boasts a what you see is what you get approach of movie creation and editing. It doesnt require a render farm cluster, or very expensive compute processors, it functions well on a relatively modern PC. The 3D recordings you create in the Filmmaker can contain recorded gameplay, objects, cameras, lights, particles, animations, effects, and sounds as well as the motion information for how each element changes over time.
