Another question: I’m trying to make Christina look like she’s running all the way to the end of the street for like 3.5 seconds, since the Background is EXT. CITY HIGHWAY LOOP - NIGHT
(The background is looped) but to be honest i dont really know what to do, so this is what i did and i know that its wrong xd What am I supposed to do to make her run all the way from screen left to screen right while the camera is following her, but I want it to go on for like 3.5 or 4 seconds
This is what i did:


Even though the background is looped, I typed zone 4 since i didnt know what to do

#1743

I ended up doing this:
EXT. CITY HIGHWAY LOOP - NIGHT
&CHRISTINA enters from left to screen right AND CHRISTINA is run_athletic
&follow CHRISTINA to screen right in zone 3 AND CHRISTINA is run_athletic
@CHRISTINA is run_athletic

but it didn’t work out well again

#1744

@CHARACTER enters from left to screen center and CHARACTER does it while run_athletic
@follow CHARACTER to screen center in zone 3 and CHARACTER does it while run_athletic
@CHARACTER exits right and CHARACTER does it while run_athletic

hey Dara,

I was wondering how I can add the smoke effect to my scene without it being there in the beginning of the scene?

Hi Dara, Is it possible to add my own music to episode?

Hey Dara.

Sorry to ask again but I need a bit of help with a choice of mine, that is really weird.

When you normally have a choice with more than to options the choice tends to be in the bottom of the screen even when you finish that option. I have the problem that when I finish one specific option of the choice and returns to the final choice the entire choice ends up in the middle of the screen, making it hard to see the characters.

Please help me, I don’t know what to do cus when I read all the other choices it works like normal but not with that specific option.

#1752

No it’s not possible.

#1753

You would use the overlay create command:

Hi, I was working on an outfit choice and I’m running into the bracket issue where the script says I’m missing a bracket. I’ve added a bracket at the end of the code, but it apparently still doesn’t fix the issue. Can you see if you can tell where the issue is? Thank you in advance! Here’s the code:

label dressinggame_1
@speechbubble reset

    YOUNGSTELLA (think)
(I'd like to wear...)

choice (FirstDayHS)
“Simple”{
@YOUNGSTELLA is dustoff_loop
@YOUNGSTELLA previews outfit FirstDay1
@YOUNGSTELLA is admire
@pause for a beat
@YOUNGSTELLA starts idle

    YOUNGSTELLA (idle_happy)
(Looks good!)

choice
“Wear this today.” {
@YOUNGSTELLA changes into FirstDay1

gain FirstDay1
goto afterdg1

} “I’ll try something else.” {
goto dressinggame_1

}}“Comfy”{
@YOUNGSTELLA is dustoff_loop
@YOUNGSTELLA previews outfit FirstDay2
@YOUNGSTELLA is admire
@pause for a beat

    YOUNGSTELLA (idle_happy)
(This is more comfy for today!)

choice
“Wear this!” {
@YOUNGSTELLA changes into FirstDay2

gain FirstDay2
goto afterdg1

}“I’ll try something else”{
goto dressinggame_1

}}“Dressy.” {
@YOUNGSTELLA is dustoff_loop
@YOUNGSTELLA previews outfit FirstDay3
@YOUNGSTELLA is admire
@pause for a beat
@YOUNGSTELLA starts idle

    YOUNGSTELLA (idle_happy)
(Dressy, but impressionable!)

choice
“Wear this!” {
@YOUNGSTELLA changes into FirstDay3

gain FirstDay3
goto afterdg1

} “I’ll try something else.” {
goto dressinggame_1

goto afterdg1
}}

label afterdg1

Will the placement of the choice change just because I move the speech bubble?
