Difference between starts and is?


#1

I can’t really figure it out, but I would love to know what the difference between starts and is is!
Could anyone help me out with that?

Nothing is the difference both are used when you want the character to perform an action…

Well its what I think…


#3

I think that ‘starts’ makes the character do the animation at the same time as the thing from the next beat, but ‘is’ makes the command be performed in its own separate beat.

But we can also use “&” when we have to do that right??

When you do say:
@CHAR is wave
NARR
She waved goodbye forever…
It would perform the whole wave action first, then do the speech bubble.

Whereas if you did starts:
@CHAR starts wave
NARR
She waved goodbye forever…
It would perform the action over whatever was after it, being the speech in this case

Hope this helps :blush: Dara’s is probably much more detailed and easier to understand though

Thank you so much, now I understand what is the difference!
