Camera won't follow or cut to a zone

Can someone please help :heartbeat:

I wanted the camera to cut to zone 3 where the dad is standing from zone 1, but the camera won’t cut to zone 3, it only cuts to zone 2… I have tried everything and I can’t figure it out.

Also sorry about my english!

This is the script:

@zoom on DAD to 300% in 0 AND DAD is idle_armscrossed_shifteyes_loop

    DAD (talk_agree_happy)
I have missed you so much princess.

@zoom on YOU to 400% in 0 AND YOU is react_gasp_dismayed

    YOU (talk_excited_happy)

@zoom on DAD to 300% in 0 AND DAD is idle_armscrossed_shifteyes_loop

    DAD (talk_sarcastic)
Get over here and give me a hug!

@zoom on YOU to 300% in 0

    YOU (talk_exclaim_yes_happy)
I am coming!

@follow YOU to screen center in zone 3 AND YOU is run_cry_embarrassed_loop

@zoom on YOU to 300% in 0

Try adding “&cut to zone # in 0” whenever you need a zone change, the camera itself can’t zoom to another zone, it can only zoom to coordinates within the zone to a percentage.

CHAR1 is in zone 1 and CHAR2 is in zone 2.

&cut to zone 1
@zoom on CHAR1 to % in 0

CHAR1 (animation)
Dialogue here.

&cut to zone 2
@zoom on CHAR2 to % in 0

CHAR2 (animation)
Dialogue here.

I tried @cut to zone 3 earlier and it didn’t work, but now it did!
I must have done something wrong :sweat_smile:

Thank you so much, it really helped!! :relaxed:

Glad it’s working now! (:

thats actually not completly true there is a way how to zoom even in zone 3 while you are in zone 1 ( its mostly used to zoom between zones )
you need to zoom and than manualy adjust the zoom numbers till you have the camera where you need it.

I’ve zoomed on sections between zones before, but it isn’t typically practical or easily accessible (in my experience anyways) due to the focus limitations. I’ve never heard of being in zone 3 and zooming into zone 1 without cutting or panning though, so obviously that’s something you know and I don’t.

I believe Dara has a tutorial on this on the forum. I just cant find it

basicly you change the first number in the zoom the bigger it is the moro to the right will move the camera.

It depends on the % of the zoom the smaler the zoom the bigger must be the number to move it

try the zoom lets say 200%. and change the first number from 0 to 1000 and you will see a difference… its bit trial and error but alowes you to set the camera in any place of the BG.
