@AMANI182-EPISODEEEEE,

Use a run animation like you would a walk. If you want them to move faster, reduce the time it takes to walk to the spot.

i.e.
@CHARACTER walks to spot 1.280 100 100 in 2 and CHARACTER does it while run_casual

@queenkhadijah999,

Episode Life has a great template for over-the-shoulder shots where you can input your character names and it creates the template for you.

How do you fade in and fade out overlays?

You actually can’t. What authors do is make an overlay of the background and add it in and fidget with the opacity to fade the overlay in and out. Here’s a guide made by the masterful @Dara.Amarie that will help:

@Genesis.epiz,

You can “fade” in and out overlays by adjusting their opacity. To fade in, start the overlay opacity at 0 in 0 then time it to change to an opacity of 1. To fade out, do the opposite. Start at an opacity of 1 and time it to go to an opacity of 0.

Example:
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 0 in 0
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 1 in 3
@pause for a beat
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 0 in 3
