Dialogue Timing

Hello :butterfly: I’m not sure if I’ll say this in a way that makes sense… In the beginning of a new scene I want the dialogue to be automatic (appear directly after the scene change) but there’s just a long akward pause lol I took a screenshot of the scene. :blob_hearts:

You can replace everything before the dialogue with “&”. So it would be:

&cut to zone 2…

&overlay CHAIRARM…
&overlay…
&overlay…
&overlay…

&DOCTOR spot…

Do you want the doctor to sit for a second before he talks?

You can also write it like this:

EXT. HOSPITAL - DAY with CHAIRARM at 0.649 83 2 in zone 2

&DOCTOR spot xx , etc

or if you want him to sit for 1 second before he talks.

@DOCTOR spot xx AND DOCTOR faces left AND DOCTOR is animation
