    Foreword: Open Dota 2, download your replay.
    Step 1: Go to the Watch tab, then find the replay you just downloaded under the downloads tab, rename it to something you will remember easily. [DO NOT USE SPACES!]

    Step 2: Go to: Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota\replays, find the .dem file that you renamed in step 1, copy it.
    (Your )

    Step 3: Place the copy of the replay (demo) inside of the following path: Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota

    Step 4: Close Dota 2

    Step 5: Launch Dota 2: Reborn Beta Tools, navigate to the Source Filmmaker.

    Step 5.A: Create a new session / project, then right click the viewport and select "Set Map", selecting the Dota 2 map.

    Step 5.B: Let it load, then save.

    Step 6: Select the Dota 2 task in your start bar and go to the options.

    Step 7: Set video resolution to 1280x720, windowed // This helps make the replay easier to work with, and allows you to see more of the screen.

    Step 8: Open the console (Tilde key ~/`) inside of the game client.

    Step 9: Type: playdemo NameofYourReplayHere, then let it load in.

    Step 10: Once you have successfully loaded into the demo, in the console inside of the game client type: bind "Key" "demo_togglepause" Replace the word Key with the button you'd like to use to pause your demo when you are inbetween recordings. Close the console. NOTE: If your bind doesn't work, just type "demo_pause" or "demo_togglepause" (without the quotes of course) in the console inside of the client, when you need to pause in game.

    Step 11: Find the spot in the demo that you want to record.

    Step 12: Go back to the SFM, click record, then record the action. When you've recorded the clip that you want, press the key we bound to pause the demo/replay in Step 10.

    Step 13. Return to the SFM and press ESC. You now have a clip recorded from a replay that you can use all the power (nearly, seeing as how the SFM Reborn still needs some love) of the SFM on!
