Hi, I’m not sure if there’s already a topic for this, but I’m trying to code a carriage scene where the characters enter screen in a carriage then get out and interact with each other. I want all this to happen while the MC explains what’s happening. Whenever I preview it, the characters “walk” to the spot but don’t do any of the subsequent animations. They move to the correct position and layer but don’t do the animation. I have a feeling this error is occurring because I’m using an &.
Here is my script…
