Am I doing something wrong with the transition?

Everytime I put a transition, the screen fades, and its brought back up to the same screen it transitioned from, and then the NEW setting pops up. Am I doing anything wrong?! This is how I typed it:

** LAYLA (think_rubchin)**
** (This is comfy! I’ll go check on Leon.)**

@transition fade in black 2

INT. BEDSHEET - NIGHT with BED COVER

HELP!

Maybe try?
@transition fade in black
@pause for 2

To leave one scene with the fade transition, you need to use this: @transition fade out black in 2
The fade in transition is for when you open a new scene, that’s why you see your same screen!

Instead of fade in try fade out instead.

These transitions are placed in two different locations. Whenever you finish a scene and want it to fade out, at the end of the scene you write:

@transition fade out 1
@transition iris out 1

But whenever you want to use a transition to begin a scene. First you need to have EVERYTHING ready. What I mean by everything:
Background
Zoom
Zones
Character locations, which way they are facing, what they are doing, etc

And they have to be with # not @ . Once that’s out of the way, you can write:

@transition fade in 1
@transition iris in 1

Etc, etc.

Hope this helps :two_hearts:
