Thank you! I have another question… When it transitions, the cut happens after the transition. How can I fix that? I want it to transition with the cut already there.

EXT. CAFE - NIGHT

@transition fade in 3

&cut to zone 2

    NARRATOR (YOU)
I knew that this was the beginning of something so special.

@add Coffee Cup To Go to YOU
@add Donut Chocolate to MICHAEL
&YOU spot 1.280 127 -5 in zone 2 AND YOU is sip_cup_neutral_loop AND YOU faces right
&MICHAEL spot 1.280 224 38 in zone 2 AND MICHAEL is eat_food_hand_neutral AND MICHAEL faces left

@pause for a beat

Upload the blurred background as an overlay and change the opacity from 0 to 1 in however many seconds you want to make it fade in: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

What are you trying to do? Are you zoomed in at a spot and want to zoom out back to 100% slowly?

You’re zoomed in at 200% yes but what spot are you zoomed in at? “200%” is the zoom level not a spot.

There should be a code that looks like this when you check the zoom (these are random numbers for example)

@zoom on 155 78 to 200% in 0

The 2 bolded numbers above is the spot you are zoomed in at. So take those 2 numbers and zoom to 100%

@zoom on 155 78 to 100% in [time]

And of course you need to replace [time] with however many seconds you want to zoom out.
So if you want to zoom to 100% in 4 seconds, it would look like this:

@zoom on 155 78 to 100% in 4

How do you get a character to walk or run evenly so that if I make them smaller when they run offscreen they don’t get larger?

But then the characters appear late. How do I make them in the scene before the transition?
