Dara Amarie's Official Help Thread! [closed]

I’ve been reading a few stories where the author makes the character open and close their eyes. I probably make zero sense but I’m wondering how they do it. Like in Fine Line where Violet winked towards the camera. How do I do this. If it’s made with overlays what overlay do I upload and how do I use it?

Hey @Dara.Amarie ! Is it possible for you to make me a battle template for my story? It would help a lot!

The bracket on line 99 needs to on line 98

There is an animation to wink forward or at the camera

Sorry but I don’t make personalized scene templates.

That’s okay! I think I might be able to do it. Thanks anyways :heart:

But the character isn’t doing an animation. Her eyes are like moving by the authors command lol.

I don’t know what that error means or how to fix it. I tried reloading and it still says there is an error.

You need to add a period or ending punctuation when you have dialogue that’s in all capitals

Hey Dara! For some reason, the music I’ve coded into my story isn’t playing, and this error is showing up above the web preview:
Here is the code:

Hey how do you add a customized name in the script?
For example if a person made a customized character and has the ability to type their name in the story, how would you add their name into the script?

Have you tried refreshing the page?

Yes :slightly_frowning_face:

Hey I’m trying to zoom in on a character and have the camera follow her, still zoomed in, as she walks to a new zone. Is that possible? Thank you for your time!

Hey, I need help, I’m using an overlay and it won’t show up on the previewer!
Here’s my script:

&cut to zone 1
&zoom on 98 92 to 139% in 0
&overlay NEWLABS12 create
&overlay NEWLABS12 shifts to -79 21 in zone 1
&overlay NEWLABS12 scales to 0.838 0.838
&overlay NEWLABS12 opacity 1
&overlay NEWLAS12 to layer 1
&overlay LABBARS create
&overlay LABBARS shifts to -79 21 in zone 1
&overlay LABBARS scales to 0.838 0.838
&overlay LABBARS opacity 1
&overlay LABBARS to layer 2

The overlay LABBARS is the one that doesn’t show up.

Pan and zoom at the same time.

&pan to zone # in [time] and zoom on _____ in [time]
@CHARACTER walks to [spot] in [time]

Since you want the overlays to already be in the scene from the beginning, just add the overlays next to the background name.

INT. GRAY with NEWLABS12 to 0.838 -79 21 in zone 1 at layer 1 with LABBARS to 0.838 -79 21 in zone 1 at layer 2
