Can somebody help me with how to add backgounds to my story?


#1

I want to start a story but i am new and it is really confusing with the directing.


#2

Its simple. Go to art catalog and select the required background. Copy the name below it and paste it on the script. :slightly_smiling_face:


#3

I have tried that but it gives me an error


#4

Can you take a screenshot of it?


#5

Scroll it sometimes the background name is big and it gets in two or three lines but we only copy the first line and then gives an error


#6

Or you can post your script if you can’t take a screenshot…:blush::blush:

You should start it with
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
NARRATOR
Episode - 1

INT. CLUB - NIGHT
(specific zone should be given like @cut to zone 1)
NARRATOR
(dialogue)

Thank you so much that seemed to work. Is it normal that when i click on save and preview that i do not see the background? I just see the text i typed


#10

Yeah! Thats because the first background is black one so only text will appear after that you can see club background.


#11

No i only see black background.


#12

Can you post your script here or screenshot?


#13


#14

After epi - 1, leave one line and don’t give space between INT and full stop


#15

Thanks that worked but i think i am going to have the read the tutorials again because these errors are driving me insane


#16

Yeah! Follow joseph evans tutorials you can write the script easily :slightly_smiling_face:
