How can I "Freeze" a Players functions and movement in the Source Engine?

Hello people, I am currently making a game (The Name is still Secret). Either way, I thought of adding a little cut-scene in the middle of the game, by using some motion cameras and such. So the question is, "How Can Freeze a Players functions and prevent the player from moving, while the cut-scene is playing? I know some methods, but I am looking for the ultimate one, so that it looks the best result. Some of the methods I thought of, was: - Spawning a "Nodraw" block on top of the player, so that the player is unable to move. - Boxing in the player in invisible blocks. If there is an ultimate way to do this and you feel free to share, drop a comment in the comment section below! Thanks, Elias Wick.

    The best way to do it is exactly like Valve did in the entire Half-Life series, don't make cut scenes, but scripted sequences where things just sort of happen around the player.
