I’m assuming you don’t know much about overlay animations? You should take a look at this then

Hey I need a bit of help with coding, I a custom background in my story (It’s a kind of worn out letter with text on it) and I want to give the readers a choice like, “Are you done reading or do you need more time” So how do I do that?

For the choice option to have more time, just pause for a certain amount of time. Or tell your readers to tap the screen when they are done reading. For this have the speech bubble at 0% so it doesn’t show up on screen.

NARRATOR
Are you done reading?
choice
“Yes” {
continue

} “No, I need more time.” {

NARRATOR
Okay, just tap the screen when you are finished.

@speechbubble is 160 160 to 0%
NARR

@speechbubble reset
}

When you have a speechbubble’s scale size at 0%, it does not show up on screen. So the background won’t change until someone taps the screen (like a tap to continue feature)

Oh Okay so for the first yes choice all I need to write after the choice is continue? Or I don’t need to write continue?

You don’t need to write continue. You can leave it blank or put in whatever you want to happen after they choose “yes”

Hello, I’m trying to make the camera pan around a beach before my scene takes place, however, my character Poppy won’t swim from zone 1 to zone 2 like I want her to. The line ‘@follow POPPY…’ has a warning next to it.
My code:

EXT. TROPICAL BEACH - DAY
@cut to zone 1
@EXTRA 2 spot 0.803 209 267 AND EXTRA 2 is tinker_kneel_loop
@POPPY spot 0.263 -41 511 AND POPPY is swim_rear
@follow POPPY to spot 0.371 176 425 in zone 2 AND POPPY is swim_rear
@remove POPPY

Please help!! Thanks

The follow command does not work with spots. You will have to pan to zone 2 while your character walks.

&pan to zone 2 in T
@POPPY walks to spot 0.371 176 425 in T in zone 2 and POPPY does it while swim_rear

in T is time in seconds, so both of those need to be the same number of seconds.

It works!!! Thank you so much! :grinning::grinning: I was also wondering how I could change in which direction she swims in the animation

Make her face left or right as she is swimming

@POPPY walks to spot 0.371 176 425 in T in zone 2 and POPPY faces left/right and POPPY does it while swim_rear
