Directing story help

In my story, I want to have someone talk while someone else walks towards them but when I try to do that, the person doesn’t start talking until the person is done walking. Same thing with the zoom. I want to zoom in while the acting is being done but the action pauses , zooms, then continues. How do I fix that?

Use the & comand .

But how’s do I do it so one person is walking while the other is talking (dialogue shown)

Use the & sign for the person walking.

&CHARACTER1 is (walking animation here) OR walks to spot X Y Z in zone # OR walks to (place here)
@CHARACRER2 is (talking animation here)

I wrote all the walking types idk which one you’re using lol do the same thing with zooms, first write the &zoom on command then write @CHARACTER (animation). I hope this helps good luck :slight_smile:

For Ryder try this:
&RYDER walks to spot 0.295 251 360 in 2.5
@pause for a beat
@RYDER starts arms_crossed
@zoom on 562 165 to 337% in 0

CLARA
I’m fine.
The rest is the same.

For Parker to keep walking when Silver talks:
@speechbubble
CLARA
I’m fine.
@speechbubble
&PARKER walks to spot 0.295 200 351 in 2.5 AND PARKER moves to layer -3 THEN RYDER faces left
SILVER
What clan are you in?..

You can do both to keep them walking. But i can try and fix it in my computer if you give me the background and the spots (in the begining of the scene) :blush:
