@Dara.Amarie, I have (?). How can I make colored choices?

Dear Dara,
How do I make the scene from Cameron Dallas where when you are texting another person the speech bubbles ping when a message is received and sent. Also how do I put the text on the speechbubble :wink:
Thank you.

You have to spot direct the character offscreen to make the character small enough to be in the balcony, then make the character walk to spot onscreen:
1- Spot Directing (Moving Characters Around)
2- Spot Walking (Walking w/Spot Direction)

choice
<PREMIUM> “This choice button will be GOLD” {

} <GREEN> “This choice button will be a DARKER color” {

}

Use text effects for dialogue: Text effects help

You’d have to create a choice to ask your readers which overlay best matches their skin color. (you can do this after the customization template)

label hand_overlay

NARR
Which skin tone best matches your own?

choice (SKIN_PHONE)
“Skin 1” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 1
@pause for 3

} “Skin 2” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 2
@pause for 3

} “Skin 3” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 3
@pause for 3

} “Skin 4” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 4
@pause for 3

} “Skin 5” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 5
@pause for 3

} “Skin 6” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 6
@pause for 3
}

NARR
Is this your skin tone?
choice
“Yes” {
} “No, let me see the others” {
goto hand_overlay
}

Then to remember which overlay was chosen, use the “choice name and option method” here: HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

Each text bubble is an overlay, which means you have to upload and animate each individual text overlay to make it appear on the phone.

#3671

So, I uploaded overlays and NONE of them appear. When I move them around on the bottom it does say that the overlay was created, but theyre like invisible. I’ve tried both doing the BACKGROUND - with OVERLAY and the @overlay OVERLAY create but none of them work. Help?

#3672

#3673

If you’re adding the overlay to the background you don’t need to use the create command. Also make sure that you are adding the correct zone.

If you’re using the create command, you need to add the scale, shift, and opacity commands as well to make the overlay appear. You also need to add the correct zone to the shift command

thank you!
