I don't know...

I want to make a texture to be like a env_sprite, it follows your eyes, like sm64 trees..

It's possible to do it?

    I think you're just going to have to use an `env_sprite` for that.

    I want to know if there's possible to recreate the effect with a texture.

    It needs to be a texture not an env_sprite.

    You apply a texture to an `env_sprite`, so that's a thing. Nothing special will happen if you put said texture on a brush.

    I think I've explained wrong.

    I want a .vmt file that does the same thing as the env_sprite.

    I think you didn't, it's just not something that can be done. Any texture you put on a brush will behave the same, a texture on a wall. The brush can't rotate to face all people, every face has one normal that's fixed upon compile. The best you can hope for is a sprite card, a cross of two unculled planes, at which point you should just be using an `env_sprite` anyway.
