@Dara.Amarie, is there a way to pan a background slowly while a speech bubble is talking? I’ve seen it in other stories… :thinking:

Just remove the overlay from the scene (@overlay OVERLAY clear) and add the new overlay: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

Hey Dara, can you help me here please?

There are these sisters in my story that argue, called Bella and Clara and they had a mini argument. When I made their dad, I named him CLARA AND BELLAS DAD DANIEL because the readers will be confused why he is telling them off. And his name is Daniel, so I had to really name him that. When I typed these in:

@CLARA AND BELLAS DAD DANIEL enters from right to screen right AND CLARA AND BELLAS DAD DANIEL is run_athletic
@CLARA AND BELLAS DAD DANIEL is disappointed

It said it wasn’t a valid directing command. The only reason I can think off is that his name is too long, but surely when I made the character it would’ve said that it’s too long, please create a different name. It’s starting to confuse me, nevertheless annoy me. Do you know how I can fix this? Thank you! :blush:

It’s the AND in CLARA AND BELLAS DAD DANIEL thats throwing off the system. It thinks you’re combining two characters.

Just create a character named DANIEL, and change only the display name to “Clara and Bella’s Dad Daniel”

Can you copy and paste your script instead? (only the scene you’re having troubles with)

I’m currently writing a story and I was wondering how to move my characters around like i’ve seen in some other stories. For example i’ve seen people enter upside down from the top of the screen, or just drop from the top of the screen. Besides, I was wondering for a specific scene in my story to have the girl crying and falling to her knees, or having her cry and move her bottom half slowly offscreen.

To shift characters around the scene, you need to make your character walk to a spot while doing an animation (any animation that isn’t a walking animation)

@CHARACTER walks to % x y in [time] and CHARACTER faces left/right and CHARACTER does it while [animation]

just a quick question, if I change the default look of a character in a published story, will it be shown live to readers, or will I need to update the story for it to be visible?

Use “at layer #” for the overlay layer and add it after the zone number.
Also, you have them both at the same layer. If you want your character behind/under the overlay then your character needs to be at a lower layer than the overlay.
