Background help, how to make it so the backgrounds constantly pans in one direction? But still has one background?


#1

Im writing a new story and trying to make the background to move the left but dont know how to


#2

To make the backgroubd move left. Your character has to move to the left.

Example: @follow CHARACTER to screen left in zone 2

The background will move with the character to wherever you want it to move.

I hope this helped.

If you want the background to move without stopping the you may want to use a looping background.


#4

Yes! I meant looping! Thank you very much! And if you can, can you please tell me how to write that? Im sorry for bothering you!


#5

Its ok your not bothering me lol. I like to help others. Now for looping. When your using looping backgrounds, the backgrounds only moves right not left.

Example:

INT. HOSPITAL LIGHTS LOOP - NIGHT

To make your character walk on the background.

Example:
INT. HOSPITAL LIGHTS LOOP - NIGHT
@CHARACTER stands screen left AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is walk_neutral.

Type this in and see if it works.

No problem.

Hey, um how do you make it so only the background loops not the character and the background?


#10

The background only loops. What kind of looping background are you using for your story and give me your characters names.


#11

EXT. FOREST LOOPING - DAY
Characters name: Charlotte


#12

EXT. FOREST LOOPING - DAY
@CHARLOTTE stands screen left AND CHARLOTTE faces right AND CHARLOTTE is walk_neutral

Wait a minute, that background that you use isn’t looping, so you make have to you a different looping background.
