How do you de reader messgaes?

I’ve been trying to look on how to direct a phone conversation between two people on the CHARACTERs phone. Like this one! !

Is it available on ink? because I’m still using the old one which shows only the NARRATOR bubbles.

My characters keep overlapping. Does anyone know how to fix it

How do you make characters move at the same time without it having to talk?

Hey Dara! I need some help here! (Animations and props wise)

I have a section where my character is reading, and I can’t get the book to show up (limelight)

   CITIZEN10 (talk_excited_happy)
Less talk, more changing!

    CITIZEN10 (talk_pointup_happy)
You've got a lot of preparation to do for your ceremony!

@CITIZEN10 is idle_book_open_neutral_loop

    CITIZEN10 (talk_excited_happy)
And starting with my favorite part, church!

@CITIZEN10 exits left

That’s the whole script section, but right now I’m a little confused on why it does not show up.

You’d probably have to make the overlay yourself or have someone else do it.

You need to layer your characters. A character at a higher layer will be in front while a character at a lower layer number will be behind.

There are 2 ways to layer your characters:
@CHARACTER moves to layer #
@CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer number

@CHARACTER1 is animation AND CHARACTER2 is animation
&CHARACTER1 is animation
@CHARACTER2 is animation

You need to add the book prop to your character:


Okay! That makes sense, but how do I add and remove props, and what’s the book prop’s name?

Omg thank you!

@Dara.Amarie Thank you!

how do you get a character to face the back without it needing to talk?

Can someone help me out?
I’m trying to get a character to drink something and I don’t know how to make it look like the cup is moving with the character’s hand as they drink. If that makes sense…

When I’m spot directing how do I make my characters move without the dialogue and action that is intended for them to do AFTER they walk to a certain spot?
for example in my script my character walks while talk_flirt and it looks awkward but I don’t want to use the @ symbol because it also looks awkward because then my character has delayed reactions
&KRISTEN walks to spot 0.470 102 285 AND KRISTEN faces left
KRISTEN (talk_flirt)
I was wondering where you are…

Can you copy and paste your choice?

@CHARACTER is rear
