@MICHELE moves to layer 2

@ASHDEN moves to layer 1
@OLIVIE2 moves to layer 1

@zoom reset
@MICHEAL changes into Micheal_2
@ASHDEN changes into Ashden_bomber
@OLIVIA2 changes into Olivia_5

@MIRANDA changes into Miranda_Work
&MICHEAL spot 0.840 89 210 in zone 1 at layer 1 AND MICHEAL faces right AND ASHDEN spot 0.840 156 206 in zone 1 at layer 1 AND ASHDEN faces right AND OLIVIA2 spot 0.840 226 201 in zone 1 at layer 1 AND OLIVIA2 faces right
&NATASHA spot 0.884 117 152 in zone 1 at layer 2 AND NATASHA faces right AND MICHELE spot 0.864 183 164 in zone 1 at layer 2 AND MICHELE faces right AND MIRANDA stands screen right AND MIRANDA faces right AND MIRANDA is rear

For some reason I’m getting confused on how to zoom on the characters in such a way that my readers can see them making conversation together.

Does anyone know how to make a character walk to a position while doing an emotion
e.g. walk_sad_loop

@CHARACTER walks to [spot] and CHARACTER faces [direction] and CHARACTER does it while [animation]

Sorry but it doesn’t work.

How did you write it in your script?

Never mind I did AND instead of and.

How can I get my character on his knees and make it seem as if he is proposing? also, I’m missing a character here.
@BECCA walks to downscreen center and THEO walks to upscreen center

NARRATOR

Theo places his hand on Becca shoulders as he can feel how soft her skin is.
Becca suddenly feel a warmth within her that she hasn’t felt in a long time.

THEO (hug_nervous_loop)

(Wow she is beautiful.)

BECCA

(Wow his hands are soft yet strong.)

THEO (talk_agree_happy)

Ok Becca breathe in and out for me slowly

BECCA (deepbreath)

(My heart is racing so fast. I do have a boyfriend.)

For kneeling I think the animation is called kneel_reach

You’ll have to play around with certain animations and zooms. You can use the “reach_kneel” animation, then have your character do the “talk_kneel” animation, or any other talking animation but you’ll have to zoom in on their upper torso so that you can’t see their feet

Thank you. now I need help in having her laying down and I have no idea about spots.

Sound complicated lol

: Spot Directing (Moving Characters Around)
: Spot Walking (Walking w/Spot Direction)

Thank you!

Just zoom in on them in 0 seconds

Okay. Is it supposed to look like this:

Do you know how to highlight words in different colors in the speech bubbles. I want to highlight some Japanese Terms I will be using in my story.

Yes that looks really good!

You will need to use text effects. You can find them on the right side of your script under “Text Effects”

Click on the color you want and put that in front of the text you want highlighted, then reset the text effect after the words, otherwise everything after will continue to be that color

Here’s an example:

CHARACTER
I hope you have a | color: magenta | super amazing | reset | vacation!
