What does your script look like? And that’s just a glitch usually. Try restarting the app or refreshing the page if you’re using the web previewer.

I did that but still nothing and I get an error messages for eating pizza and cupcakes!

I need help, so if I do

@MADDIE Faces right

And
@MOM Faces right it says an error…

I just wanna know if this is correct.

What does your script look like?

“Faces” needs to be all lower case.

@CHARACTER faces left

Hello, Dara. How do I add a background music to this scene (the screenshot shown below)?

For example, if I want to add a music between the episode 1 and episode 2, is don’t “music off” the last music I used can let that music play on the scene between episode 1 and 2?

And if it’s, how to add a different music if I don’t want to use the last music I used in episode 1 as the background music of that scene?

Thank you!

This is the screen shot:

so, I have a question. When someone is on a bed, is there an easier way to place them as sleeping on the bed instead of having to preview to perfectly sit them on the bed.


I don’t understand what went wrong…

I’m trying to make a character walk to a different zone and spot then the zone and spot they’re in. This is what I wrote but it says warning. (For INK)

@cut to zone 3

@follow HEATHER spot 0.966 114 172 in zone 3 AND HEATHER faces right

Hello, how do I do limited customization for a male ink character?? I don’t want them to change the skin, hair or eye color

It looks like this!

The error is actually the with # FILTER: LUMINANCE part that you added to the background name. Just delete that part.

I haven’t tested this out myself, but I’m pretty sure you would just put the music at the very end of the previous episode

Unless you already know the exact spot coordinates, then no there isn’t an easier way. You have to test your story to move the character to where you want them exactly.

The follow command doesn’t work with spot direction. If you want to follow your character to a specific spot in a different zone, you’d have to pan to the zone at the same time they are walking.

&pan to zone #
@CHARACTER walks to spot % x y in zone #

You need to change all the CHARACTER to one of your already existing characters.

I removed the option to change hair, but not hair color. If you don’t want hair color just tell me and I can remove it and send you a new template.

Have you taken a look at the guides for basic directing yet? The pound sign (#) is only used to mark notes in your script.

You need to use the at-sign (@) if you want to make a character do an animation, place the character in the scene, or do any type of command in your script.

You also need to place your characters in the scene first, that is why they are not showing up in your story when you test it.

Take a look at the Beginner Directing Tips, as well as the Advanced Directing Tips, in the Guides.
