The same goes for backgrounds that don’t loop?

Characters are automatically placed behind overlays. But once you add a layer to the overlay, then characters will now be in front of the overlay by default. Using the commands “enters from” and “stands” will place the character at a default layer.

So if you want your character behind the overlay, remove the layer from the overlay.

But if you need to layer the overlay for a reason (like you want a character behind then another character in front), then you need to place th character at a spot offscreen with their layer then have them walk to a spot onscreen

@CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer #
@CHARACTER walks to spot % x y

I know this isn’t a very important question, but I’ve been trying to find this piece of clothing for a while now. It’s the checkered sort of tights(black). Not the herribong ones.

Is this ink or limelight, male or female?

Ink female

Is it the fishnets you’re looking for?

It is! Tysm :smile:

What does the “-” sign on the spots mean?

Hi, I wanted to ask, is it possible to cut to a zoomed in section in a scene. Say for example I have 2 characters talking in the normal zoom in zone 2, could I cut to 2 different characters talking in zone 1 who are set a bit further back in the background and cut to them straight away?

I hope you can understand this :slight_smile:

And please tell me what I’m doing wrong i really don’t get how to write choices

I think it’s something about the brackets?..

INT. BLACK - NIGHT
@CARA stands screen center AND CARA faces right AND CARA starts think

CARA

What to wear.

Choice - Outfit {

@CARA stands screen center
@CARA faces right
label dressinggame_1
@speechbubble reset

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

choice (Eps1Outfit)
“Something Adventurous”{
@CARA previews outfit IRIS_default
####REPLACE THIS WITH ONE OF YOUR OUTFITS####
@CARA is admire
@pause for a beat
@CARA starts idle

    CARA (idle_arms_crossed)
(I love this look! I'll catch the eye of someone cute!)

choice

Hey! Can I know what’s wrong with my script here? It doesn’t seem to work atall

Yes, just cut to the zone and zoom in on your characters in 0 seconds.

Can you show an example of a spot code with that symbol?

You’re missing 2 brackets. But the format of your “dressing game” is a bit weird. If you click on the link in my template, I have a simple dressing game template there that you can use.

“input” needs to be all lower case

And backspace each line so that the words/codes are right next to the gray bar with numbers

Okay, thank you :slight_smile:

I know how to make a character and background fade, but I am trying something different. I have been playing around with the overlays and layers, but I starting to think what I want to do is impossible. Thought I would ask before I give up.

I’m trying to make a character and the background fade away into another background with another character. So, character 2 will be standing in the exact same position as character 1 who faded out.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Please help! I am trying to have a choice be remembered in a different episode: The main character had a decision to kiss one of two people in episode 4. In episode 5, I want to have the main character address her choice. Is it possible to remember choices across episodes? If so, how?
And I’m sorry, I am new and have no idea what a gain is!
Thank you so much!!!

Hi! I was using your first character customization template. I followed your instructions but I get a warning that says “The label female_custom does not exist”
