Why do I feel like plenty of other people have already asked about this…
So I’m trying to write my first story, and I was all excited until I reached a part where, after a short intro in the black background, I can’t figure out how to move into the next scene/background smoothly, like with a transition. I’m trying to get it to fade in but no matter what I do it won’t accept it.
So here’s what my scripting for the transition currently looks like:
transition fade in black
INT. ITALIAN RESTAURANT OL - NIGHT
@ROXANNA changes into ROXANNA_outing
And here’s the error response I keep getting:
Expected dialog, found “transitionfadeinblack” instead. Did you forget to capitalize the first word in the sentence?
I do have the transition command right after some narrator dialog, but I tried spacing it out and I get the same thing. What do I have to do to make a clean, smooth change of scenes?!
