I’m trying to get them to shift from one area to another

#1812

You need to make them walk to wherever you want them to move to while doing an animation.

@CHARACTER walks to screen left and CHARACTER faces left/right and CHARACTER does it while animation

Hey Dara.

Sorry to ask again but I need a bit of help with a scene

INT. ICE CREAM PARLOR - DAY

music music_acousticballad

@EXTRA 1 spot 1.046 230 129 in zone 1 at layer 4 AND EXTRA 1 faces left AND EXTRA 15 spot 1.001 137 114 in zone 1 at layer 4 AND EXTRA 15 is idle_rear AND EXTRA 15 faces left

@EXTRA 15 is talk_rear AND EXTRA 1 starts talk_arms_crossed_loop

@KITTY stands screen center in zone 2 AND KITTY faces left AND KITTY is talk_gesture_rear

sound doorbell

@SILVER enters from left to upscreen left AND SILVER faces right AND BRONZE enters from left to screen left AND BRONZE faces right

@BRONZE spot 1.280 50 0 in zone 1 at layer 3

@SILVER spot 1.280 100 0 in zone 1 at layer 3

For some reason no matter what I do the character extra 15 always ends up in front of Bronze and Silver when its supposed to be behind them :frowning:

I’ve got no idea what to do here, please help

#1818

Ups I’ve found the mistake and don’t need help anymore

#1819

The characters aren’t placed in the car for their starting positions. (before you shift the overlay and move the characters)

Hit there I need help figuring out how to make my two characters that are close to each other start to slow dance in a smooth transition. Please and thank you! Oh and the story is in limelight.

#1821

OMG… thank you . it would have taken me long time to notice that misspell:kissing_heart:

#1822

Oh whatever I just made it correct, but thank you :smiley:

Hey Dara.

I need a bit help with something.

I’m having trouble getting to the new scenes after the multiple choice. Every time I’ve tried I always end up at the beginning of the label even when I’ve tried all the options.

I just can’t seem to figure out how to code it so the reader won’t return to the beginning of the choice after reading all the choices. Please help

#1824

The smoothest way it to get one of them to walk slightly closer to the other character and then just have them both do the slow dance animation.

Add a “Done reading all options” choice at the end.

I’m trying to add an overlay to the same scene but it won’t show the overlay.
Here’s the script:

@zoom reset
@EVELYN exits right
@cut to zone 1

INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY with BLINDS

sound door_slam

Thanks!

Hey, I was wondering if you had a ballroom template?

I’ve tried that before but it just keeps returning to the multiple choice

#1829

Are you putting a label inside of that choice? Because you’re not suppose to; it’s just suppose to be blank.

choice
“Option 1” {
goto label
} “Option 2” {
goto label
} “Option 3” {
goto label
} “Done”{
}
