🍒 CODES: Having Characters Walk on a looping Background 🌸

An example code with 2 characters:

EXT. SPORT FIELD - DAY

&zoom on 0 335 to 151% in 0

&BRANDI enters from left to screen left in 1.2 AND BRANDI does it while walk_neutral THEN BRANDI starts walk_neutral
@JEM enters from left to screen center in 1.2 AND JEM does it while walk_neutral THEN JEM starts walk_neutral

&BRANDI moves to layer 1
&JEM moves to layer 2

@pause for 3.3

&zoom on 146 325 to 203% in 0

JEM (walk_talk_happy)
I can’t wait to throw water balloons at the whole soccer team. A bunch of apes.

&JEM is walk_neutral

&BRANDI moves to layer 3

@zoom on 0 325 to 203% in 2

BRANDI (walk_talk_happy)
Me too. I ordered extra just in case.

&BRANDI moves to layer 1

&BRANDI is walk_neutral

&zoom on 0 335 to 151% in 0

@pause for 4

*I used a higher layer for the character that was speaking. You can read more on layers here: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers

If you’re more of a learner that prefers watching videos you can check out this video on characters walking on a moving background :rose:
