Coding Help / Questions

Can someone please tell me what the “timer” button is used for under the “more helpers” button.
I notice that some stories I read seem to flow faster with animation then mine do. I don’t know how to really put that into words, so I hope that makes sense.

Also, can someone tell me how to do panning? The only type of panning I can’t seem to grasp is the foot to head panning to show off an outfit for example.

Thank you so much in advance!


I think the timer is to time your own story to see how long ur story is I could be wrong abt it cuz I’ve never personally used it .

Panning is done like

@pan to zone # in #

@pan to zone 2 in 2
@pan to zone 3 in 7
@pan to zone 1 in 1

You just gotta play with the end number .

Hey, thanks! I know how to pan with zones. I just don’t how to do the character.

it’s all here it’s basically a helper for timed choices

The Timer option is only used when using Timed Choices.

You’d do this using zooms. This is how I did it for my story:

&cut to zone 3 and MC spot 1.182 221 59 AND MC faces left AND MC is talk_doubtful and zoom on 896 0 to 246% in 0
@pause for 1 then zoom on 896 425 to 246% in 5

When I perform body pans, I try to keep the x-coordinates (or the horizontal movement) and the zoom percentages the same and just change the y-coordinate (or the vertical movement). That way it’s a clean pan from bottom to top or vice versa.

OMG! Thank you so much!
