#3933

hi I need help finding an animation I have seen in many stories but can’t seem to find


#3934


#3935

Can you describe the animation and is it INK or LL?


#3936

Hey…
I don’t know if I am right here…if not - I am sorry :see_no_evil:

I have a situation where I cut into a scene and wants three characters to be in there already.
But not standing but sitting…

Like I wrote it now, one character “enters” after another…but I do not want it like that because it looks weird :frowning:

Is there a chance to correct this?

Thank you in advance!

Place all your characters at the very beginning of the scene before the transition command and use the & sign instead of the @ sign.

BACKGROUND
&CHAR spot ------- AND CHAR faces left/right AND CHAR is animation
&CHAR spot ------- AND CHAR faces left/right AND CHAR is animation

You need a period or exlamation point (or any other ending punctuation) when you have dialogue that is in all CAPS.


#3941

It is an ink animation
Where the character stands with their eyes wide, like they are shocked


#3942

Dara, I have to say this… YOUR A GODDESS. I love you!


#3943

Thank you thousand times! :slight_smile:

You’re looking for the end of the flirt_fingersnap animation. To acheive this, you can do one of these 2 things:
1- Focus/zoom on a spot that is not your character and have your character do the flirt_fingersnap animation. Wait a second or 2 then focus back to your character and they will be in the last position of that animation.
2- Create a duplicate character and place the duplicate character offscreen somewhere and make them play out the animation first. Then switch out the main character with the duplicate.

Remove the @ in front of your character’s name. You don’t need the @ or any other symbols for when a character is talking.
