      Either add a customization template so readers can change her to their liking or put commands to change her appearance off screen or under a transition command or make a new character

        No problem! And just use the zoom helper and zoom on the character's feet first, the code it onto your script, then have the character enter the scene so the camera will already be zoomed in correctly before they enter

        Just copy what the zoom helper says (@zoom on z y to x% in #) same with having a character enter (it'd probably look better if you spot direct them so you can see their full body) so that'd be Char spot x y z (place them off screen first) then Char walks to spot x y z (on screen)

        I've had the same problem before, and I'm not exactly sure how to fix it either.

        The default zone is zone 1 so you don't need the cut to zone 1 if the camera is already there in the beginning. Can you see your overlay on the screen if you zoom out really far? If so, (overlays aren't something I'm best at so sorry if this doesn't help) try playing around and changing the placement numbers. This happened to me once and I fixed it after changing my numbers.

      Hey, I have a question if someone could help please. I want to make my character anonymous but do I have to make a new character that looks just like the character I want them to look like and just not give them a name? Or can I keep the character that I already have and just make his name disappear temporarily? I hope that came across right lol. Thanks in advance.

        I think that's what you have to do, make a character similar to the new character.

        Yup you just have to make a new character with no display name.

      How To Turn Backgrounds Upside Down:
      Like with turning characters upside down, you can turn backgrounds upside down too with the zoom helper (I actually didn't know this until I was playing around because I've never seen anyone do it.), you zoom all the way out until the background flips upside down (characters will be flipped upside down as well) The upside down zoom percentage will have a hyphen in front of them.
      Hi I read your instruction, but I still don't know how to zoom until the background flips upside down? Also is it possible, to rotate camera point so if character lays in bed, you can rotate camera for idk 90° so you can show face from in front? (I hope it's understandable)

        Use the zoom helper and just zoom out until it flips upside down. And no you can't really rotate the camera
    Working...
