Coding Help With Transition

Hey guys, so I’m trying to place my transition on a line that the scene fades in with character in the scene. But I don’t know where to put it. The transition is bolded.

@Winteronepisode think you can help? :sob:

Try this? I condensed things down a little bit to allow for everything to happen with the transition. Let me know if this isn’t what you wanted, I didn’t test it out myself.

It’s transitioned in the scene, but the eating part was a bit too fast, and the dialogue came next.

I edited the message. I just lengthened the pause time for after the eating part.

Unless you wanted it to fade in, then have him eat?

Worked perfectly! Thank you! Wow, people code so differently, but makes it easier. :rofl:

You’re welcome! Yeah, lol, I also used to code like you did, but I found it to be laggy and to cause script pauses before transitions. Now I condense anything I can, lol, including overlay creations next to the background name, animations and pauses, etc… It also reduces line usage (not that that really matters, it’s really just something I need done for my own sanity lmao)

Nice! It’s good to learn something new for a change. :sunglasses:
