Directing problems need help


#1

how do i have a charater on the screen when i start the dialoge?


#2

&CHAR enters from side to side
example
&CHAR enters from left to screen right


#3

omg my bad I read it wrong! just do
&CHAR is (insert animation)


#4

no like i want them to already be standing in the scene whenn dialog starts so lke not walking in and they are already standing there


#5

so do
&CHAR is idle
or
insert your own animation.


#6

Use the & sign instead of the @ sign and place them at the very beginning of the scene right after the background name

INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY

&CHARACTER stands screen position
CHARACTER 
Dialogue.

@transition fade in/out
@transition shade up/down
@transition curtain in_left/in_right/out_left/out_right
@transition curtain in_top/in_bottom/out_top/out_bottom
