Character won't sit!


#1

I’m not sure why it’s happened but for some reason one of my characters won’t sit even when it’s in the script…

@RIVAL KING SON walks to spot 0.962 139 150 in zone 2 AND YOUNG HUMAN walks to spot 0.864 244 229 in zone 2
@RIVAL KING SON faces right
YOUNG HUMAN (idle_sit_anklescrossed_neutral_loop)
The Kingdom is really beautiful under the glow of the moon.!

It’s not sitting because you have to do
@YOUNG CHARACTER starts idle_sit_…

Maybe because the young human isn’t on stage. The photo you showed doesn’t show the young human.
Instead of doing AND YOUNG HUMAN walks to spot …
I think you should make that a new line.
@YOUNGHUMAN walks to spot …
Preview to make sure he’s on stage and then new line
@YOUNGHUMAN starts idle_sit_…

Also, it’s best to have the characters doing animations : )

An example of animations that can be used for your script:

So, it is:
CHAR (animation)
Dialogue.

Also, don’t forget to use @zoom reset for some scenes where you’ll need it, because if you ever do zoom in to a scene and need to zoom out to its regular default view, then this is a good command to know and use-it will help you out.
You probably already know this but it’s still good to tell anyway : )

Good luck with everything! :black_heart:

Oh it was still in the rough stages I hadn’t decided what I was going to use as animation yet lol so I just write down what I want them to say then direct it later adding whatever animation for the scenes lol but thanks you I didn’t realize you could pan in a (timed) way haha I’m still learning so any tips are greatly appreciate!!!
