Session Importer

msu355 has yet to upload a media file


This script will make it easy to copy shots from another session to your current one. Or to help you recover shots from a session that sfm can't open.

To install:

place extract folder here: "SourceFilmmaker\game\workshop\scripts\sfm\mainmenu"

How to use

  1. First save your current session in case something goes wrong.
  2. open up the script, you'll find it under the mainmenu bar->scripts->Import->Import Session
  3. next select the session file you want to import from
  4. then once its done loading the file select and check off the shots or tracks you wish to import. then click import checked items. all import items will be dropped at the end of your film strip


  1. when importing a large session keep in mind that it will take a few secs or more for the script to load it.
  2. also keep in mind that loading a large session will use up more of sfms' memory and will stay loaded until sfm restarts.
  3. the import to miscBin option is for when you want to manually go though the shots in the element viewer yourself. this wiki will help:

feel free to modify the script for your own use if you find any bugs or have suggestions message me in the comments below.

There's actually a drawn out way of doing this, kyo, but msu355 has made this way easier (as they tend to do!). Great work.

This seems pretty broken. When i open a session, and then select ANY file to import, it only lets me import things from the session i opened, NOT from the session i want to import from. Now i have a session with 3 clips, and clip 1 of that exact same session is added again at the end. Can't figure out a way to import things from another session.

This is so freaking weird. I opened both sessions without problems, they are 2 different sessions, but no matter what i do, i can't import one of them, if i have the other one loaded. I can open any session, and apparently import any other session i want, EXCEPT the 2 that i want to actually combine! I tried removing spaces and symbols from the file names, but nothing changes. When i open the project with 1 clip, and i import the one with 3 clips, it lets me select only one clip, and that is the one i already have open, same thing the other way around, when i load the one with 3 clips, and import the one with 1 clip, i can select 3 clips, and it's the 3 clips i already have open... WTF am i doing wrong???

Still doesn't work! Why do you write "if you find any bugs or have suggestions message me in the comments below." If you never actually check the comments? Really hate how this site has no way to message someone... 99% of the stuff that gets uploaded here is either crap, or broken... FUCK!

Many thanks, this will come in handy.

Yeah I appear to be having the same problem gaf does, although less mad about it lol. The session I'm trying to import from is actually an older version of the one I'm using currently. Not sure if that matters.
