Did you do this?:


Also it would be more useful to type your code in one line like so:


@overlay BLUSH RIGHT shifts to 150 150 in zone 1 and overlay BLUSH RIGHT scales to 36 40 in 0 THEN\AND overlay BLUSH RIGHT opacity 1 in 1
|___> Your choice if you want to pick THEN or AND.
THEN --> The code will happen after the above.
AND --> Tht code will happen at the same time.

ok thanks

Let me know if it works :slight_smile:

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since this is about coding. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics, and feel to PM me if there are any questions. :wink:

Line 1646 is wrong. Scales to numbers are not %’s you need to use the directing helper>> overlay helper then copy the scale and shift spots from there

What does shifts to mean and scales to mean because I don’t understand and I can find the overlay

The shifts and scales works just like spot with caracters, it’s basically the position and size of the object

How do you make a zoom happen while dialogue is playing?

You can try to put it between the dialogue, like this…

       LOLLA (talk_happy)
   I really enjoyed the dinner with him 

@zoom on (…)

        PETER (talk_angry)
  I don't like him at all

@zoom on (…)

            LOLLA (talk_armscrossed)
    Sometimes I don't undestand you

Or you could do it like this…

&zoom on (…)

                   LOLLA (talk_happy)
   I really enjoyed the dinner with him


&zoom on x y to % in S
dialog or narration here

The & allows anything to happen simultaneously

Hi you gave me the coding but it isn’t appearing on the screen I don’t know where whether it’s the numbers I used or not

it seems like you used scale for shift and vice versa


&overlay BLUSH RIGHT shifts to 36 40 in zone 2 in 0
&overlay BLUSH RIGHT scales to 0.150 0.150 in 0

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong?
No matter what I do my character still pop up in the scen…
And after a few seconds the character stops being in rear… though I have not given that command to do so…

I’ve written like this:

@YOUNG BAYARD spot 0.698 203 219
&YOUNG BAYARD walks to spot 0.698 77 226 in 2 AND YOUNG BAYARD is walk_neutral_rear
@YOUNG BAYARD spot 0.698 77 226 and YOUNG BAYARD faces right and YOUNG BAYARD is rear
&YOUNG BAYARD is idle_rear

How do make characters change clothes with choices

You need to place your character off screen if you want him to walk on the scene or use & for placing him to prevent pop up

For walking try this:
&YOUNG BAYARD walks to spot 0.698 77 226 in 2 AND YOUNG BAYARD does it while walk_neutral_rear THEN YOUNG BAYARD faces right and YOUNG BAYARD is rear
