Thank you, Dara <3
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
How to fade-blur backgrounds?
It didn’t work?
Put the cut command before the transition command
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?
I’m Zoomed at 200%
Yeah i’m zoomed into 200% and I want to zoom out slowly
I did @zoom on 200% to 100% in time
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 speak and then a different character do an action at the same time?
&CHARACTER is animation
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?
Make them walk to a spot offscreen while doing a running animation
But then the characters appear late. How do I make them in the scene before the transition?
Put them also before the transition command
