Can you follow 2 characters into another zone?


#1

I know you can make a character walk to a zone and have the camera follow them, but i am wondering if you can do that with more than one character.
So i have 2 characters and I want them to walk to zone 2 but i want the camera to follow them both at the same time
if there is any way i can do that, that’d be a great help!!
Thanks.

You can sorta

&CHARATER1 walks to screen left in zone 2
@follow CHARACTER2 to screen right in zone 2


#3

yeah that works sorta!! its good enough for it to work the way i want it to
Thank you so much!


#4

Awesome! No worries


#5

well now im having another problem
my character just slides when i do this
@CHARACTER walks to spot 0.506 164 327 in zone 2 in 3 AND CHARACTER walks to spot 0.532 69 364 in zone 2 in 3
only one of them slides
and i even typed
does it while walk_neutral and she still slides -___-


#6

Hmmm… Not sure why they would be sliding. Maybe try separating the commands on different lines? Just makes it easier to fiddle around with when you have multiple commands
&CHARACTER1 walks to spot 0.506 164 327 in zone 2 in 3
@CHARACTER2 walks to spot 0.532 69 364 in zone 2 in 3


#7

she still slides which is annoying me because it’s not supposed to happen -__-!


#8

i might pause for a beat then get them to walk , it works that way… for some reason.


#9

The only other thing is to maybe add
@pause for a beat
So that they have time to get into place maybe?


#10

yes that’s what i decided to do because it works that way.


#11

Awesome


#12

thank you so much for your help!


#13

Any time :relaxed:

Do you know how they do the screen format phone texting thing? I’ve been trying to do it but I dont know how it’s done…


#15

There’s two ways.
A way that is beginner friendly and a more advanced way.
To do it through episode this would be the coding.

INT. CELLPHONE - DAY

NARRATOR
New text message
choice
< PREMIUM >“Open”{
message dialogue here
}

set format phonetext

Is that the one you mean?


#17

#18

#19
