Can someone please help me with this? Transition issue! :(


I’m having issues with the following part of my script. It keeps transitioning in as if there is a glitch there. I have listed overlays in the right place however it will open and appear with everything for a second and then reappear again if that makes sense. Script listed below. Please help!

@Dara.Amarie (Tagging you since you’re so good at helping with this!) :slight_smile:

I’m not 100% sure, but try to change this


@cut to zone 3

and put it right before the transition, not in the middle of everything else

what do u mean by transition error?

Every time the scene opens up it looks like there’s a glitch when it transitions from the previous scene into this one. It gives you the glitchy effect like something is out of place like when you don’t place your overlays in the right order or something. I hope that makes sense. :hugs:

can u send me a screenshot of the error

Here you go! :hugs: The quality is really crummy :pensive: Let me know if you can see it.

Maybe it’s also a problem with the THEN command, I’m not sure but maybe of you use AND instead

its the @pan to zone 3 in 0.0

I tried changing the pan to zone 3 to cut to zone 3, but that didn’t work for me :disappointed:. Any ideas? Think I should remove it entirely?


I see many mistakes in your script, so I’m not really sure where to start.

  1. Spotting Genevieve must not include THEN
  2. pan doesn’t go before transition- it goes after
  3. Spotting Julia must not include THEN
  4. Setting hsl must start with &
  5. Almost everything you wrote above transition, should have been below transition

When setting a scene, make sure you follow this order:
INT. BACKGROUND with OVERLAY in zone X at layer Y
music music_name
volume music 70 2000
&set hsl 0 0 -40 in 0
&zoom on 160 275 in 0
&CHARACTER spot 1.280 200 0 in zone 2 AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER starts idle AND CHARACTER moves to layer X
@cut to zone 2
@transition fade in black in 2

I hope I didn’t miss anything :heart: I hope Dara will reply, she’s the pro after all :wink:


dara’s a boy? i thought dara was a girl…

Nooo :joy: my keyboard writs by itself :heart: I’ll fix it :heart:
