Hi, Dara!

So, I’m trying to make an animated intro for my story, so, I was wondering how I should fade the overlays in?

I’ve seen authors do it before, so I wanted to give it a go. :slight_smile:

Use overlay opacity to fade in/out overlays

Thanks, Dara! :slight_smile:

Sorry but can you help me get those same character’s to face forward? If that’s possible?

You mean to look at the “camera”? You’d have to use any of the animations that have “forward” or “atcamera” in the name.

Okay, thank you!

Ok, thanks!

Hi hope you can help me,
I am getting a pause before my background turns black/white and then another pause before my characters appear.

So, have you thought about what film you want to watch tonight?

    EMILY (talk_happy_agree)
Either Harry potter or fantastic beasts and where to find them.

How do you get a character to run extra fast?

@CHARACTER walks to [spot] in [time] and CHARACTER does it while [animation]

Anything less than 1 second is fast

I have a question. How could I make a character enter to a specific, but be the same size that I spotted the other characters?

Spot the character offscreen with the size you want them to be, then make them walk to a spot onscreen.

Hi Dara! I was wondering if there’s any tips or tricks to get your characters to move in slow motion?

The zoom does not appear onto my story. Is there something wrong with the script?
