Different btw 'is' and 'starts' function

Who knows the different between:
@CHARACTER starts idle


@CHARACTER is idle

@CHARACTER starts will make the character START the action on that beat where @CHARACTER is will make them sorta middle of action…

Thanks but I’m a bit confused. Any examples?

I personally put is… But… Say you wanted to have 2 characters make actions at the same time… But not on the same line… Then you use:

@CHARACTER starts ______
@CHARACTER2 starts ______

Whereas if you want them one after the other just do:

@CHARACTER is ______
@CHARACTER2 is ______

The equivalent to the first example would be:
@CHARACTER is ______ and @CHARACTER2 is ________

Ohhh I get it now. Thanks so much!!
