Alright, so how long does it take you to learn advanced coding? Are u still getting use to know the point system? Animating overlays? Zoom Angles? Etc. There is no rush to learning advanced coding, if your still sticking to basic choices, like for clothing and not tappable overlays, thats is totally fine. Advanced Directing takes a lot of time and practice to learn different coding styles.
It took me around 3 months to learn the basics of advanced directing. I’m not pro nor am I skilled, but I can say that I have improved and gotten a lot better at it. I recently tried my hand at the point system which was really basic when I attempted it. Tappable’s? I haven’t mastered this yet.
thank you to @amberose who allowed me to be in her class. Amber, Marshmallow, and Jem has helped me to get to a place where I can say “this story contains advanced directing, tap slowly”
There was a time where I was really keen to learn advanced directing! I could animate overlays, direct speechbubbles, spot direct, make choices.
Now I can barely remember how to spot direct, much less any of the other stuff. I’m working towards getting to that place again.
For me, I am still getting use to point system, tappable overlays, and branching, so that will take some time for me to learn. Now, it took me a while to get use to advanced directing, but I manage to do it in my second story! I am proud of what came out and can’t wait to direct more scenes, for A Prince’s Curse.
I don’t think i can do advanced directing but i can do spot directing and the basic stuff. I think i’ve improved tho but i would love to be able to do advanced directing.
You go girl!! It takes a lot of time to know basic, advanced, and intermediate directing. Take things slow and you’ll get there.
Thanks! If it wasn’t for Jospeh evans I wouldn’t be able to know anything to do with coding
Same!!! I think he’s been on Episode longer, and have good experience with a lot of coding, and I think Dara as well.
Working fast as hell today on my entry, while talking to ya’ll lol. Advanced Directing is in full effect,
Took me a year to write and code three episodes of my first story, that includes major plot and character changes as well as just better zooms and a more interesting opening. I can now say that I’m in love with the point system over any other directing features like flags and stuff, and I even started using them for dressing games and remembering choices! I still call myself a lazy director because I am pretty lazy to learn new things about coding plus making and uploading overlays ughhh so much work even though my story needs heavy directing to live up to its genre To make up for that, I try to make the zooming and cinematography as cool as possible so even if my story is low-budgeted on customized overlays, it’d still be a treat to the eye. Lolol
@lanafrazer_episode Nice topic u got there lana!
as for me i go with spot directing zooms and directing limb and custom pose overlays. I have never tried to use point systems i dont know y. Honestly for clothing choices, i dont go with tappable overlays and normal coding is good for that according to my view. I dont use much choices in my story unless i feel that they are important. It did take me a while to learn how to work with overlays but i am glad that i am getting a hang of it now. So, as for the time taken to learn, the time taken to learn the things i mentioned apart from the point system, took me a whole year to perfect in it and i think i am good in that now. So, next, i will start to learn about tappable overlays and point system.
I would love to do advanced directing for my story, but I forgot about basic coding and have to go over all of that again
you go girl i am sure that u can get it done! good luck!
I guess it took me a while? When I first started there were no tutorials so I didn’t even know how to put a background in a script And from then it really was a development process. I learned basic directing, then a few months later spot, then advanced zooms, then ease in/out, then overlays and so on. I think creativity comes into it too, you could be capable of amazing directing but if you don’t have imagination to create a specific scene you’ll never showcase it.
You’re not the only one,
Yeah, i am pretty much the same too thats y it took me a whole year to learn it haha
Yeah, I’m typing as fas as I can, so im making my episodes short and keeping on track og bg.ov approvals, so oh boy…directing is going to take long as hell, but worth it.
This is sooo true, I get inspiration from movies.
yep def its worth it! dont forget to take rest from time to time and dont stress out! With the portal glitching it should be frustrating!
I agree too its really hard to write a scene when you can not visualize it it sometimes makes me angry since i want to write but i wont even know how the scene has to look!
