A new set of animation tools released last week have made it a lot easier for people to import Overwatch's characters into Source Filmmaker and mess around with stuff. Like swapping player animations.

Not every character or animation is working right now (some, like Winston, Bastion and D.Va's mech use wildly different skeleton structures than the more humanoid characters), but there's enough to get started on some quality character-swapping.
If you've got experience with this stuff, or want to try it out, here's a clip by speedalt123 that will help get you started.
