Does anyone know how to make a GIF run while the narrator is talking?

Hey Everyone!!
So I found a GIF to use in my story but I want the narrator to talk while the GIF is running.
Does anyone know how to do that?

Sounds like you already know how to put gifs in your story so I won’t explain that, unless you need that too of course :blush:
To keep narration, animation, and other things happening in your story while something else is going on, you have to use & commands.
For example: &overlay EFFECT PINK SPOTLIGHTS create THEN overlay EFFECT PINK SPOTLIGHTS opacity 1 in 1 THEN overlay EFFECT PINK SPOTLIGHTS opacity 0 in 1 loop INFINITE times
This is a clip from my script. The & command at the beginning of the line of code basically allows the overlay creation and opacity changes to happen but it simultaneously keeps moving to the other lines of coding in the story.

Basically, @ = does the line of code but doesn’t move on until its finished
e.g. @overlay shifts to BLANK in 5: it won’t move on in your script until that 5 seconds is up
V.s. &overlay shifts to BLANK in 5: still takes 5 seconds for the overlay to get to BLANK but it allows the script to move on to the next lines of code. :grin:
Hope that helps! @0_Sara_Rose_0

Ok so this is my script. Basically, you’re saying that I have to write the &command for every overlay after the narration.

Yep! that’s exactly what I’m saying. :smile:
I know it may sound tedious or that it might not work but it definitley will!

Although I would also recommend that you put your gif overlays in a format like this:

&overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 opacity 1 in 0 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 3 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 3 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 3 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 3 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 4 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 4 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 4 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 4 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 5 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 5 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 5 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 5 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 6 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 6 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 6 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 6 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 7 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 7 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 7 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 7 opacity 1 in 0.001 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 8 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 8 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 8 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 8 opacity 1 in 0.001 loop INFINITE times

All of this is on the SAME EXACT line so the &command affects all the overlays. Having them split up like yours is a little tricky. especially if you want a gif to replay over and over again to make it appear that you took a gif and put it right into your story.

A less overwhelming version of this format:
&overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 1 opacity 1 in 0 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 create THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 shifts to 48 265 in zone 1 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 scales to 1.540 1.540 THEN overlay CHAPTER 1 FRAME 2 opacity 1 in 0.001 loop INFINITE times
And at the end you can see that I have put loop INFINITE times, this is to allow me to have the gif playing over and over without have to copy and paste my script of bunch of times.
You can put however many times you want the gif to loop as you want: loop 5 times, loop 20 times, loop 12 times. It’s all up to you! :grin:

Ok thank you so much!! :blush:

It didn’t work. Did I do something wrong? Here is my script

Ok so I tried that and I think I confused myself even more. The thing is I have 65 frames so it gets confusing!
If anybody is absolutely bored, can you help me go through it?

@0_Sara_Rose_0
Hi again. Lol. All you have to do is move the narrator dialogue below all of the gif script

Oh that makes more sense!! Thank you

Happy to help!
I also saw that you you have a lot of frames. there’s this webisite that splits the gif into frames but also lets you delete some of the frames if you want. typically when you have a gif with a lot of frames, a lot of them tend to look exactly alike which is just way more work than you need. the website is ezgif.com if you want to check it out! :grin:

Ok thank you!!

It still doesn’t work!! It says it has an invalid time format and that I need to input numbers. What does that mean???
Here is my entire script for the GIF. If anyone is bored, can they help? It’s kind of long!!

Long Ago..
When time was never limited.
The great gods unleashed a spirit of power upon the small world!
The world we now call Earth.
And every 100 years, the power is granted to a new human!
Born with fiery | bold, color:purple, animation:flash | purple eyes!

Sorry if you don’t need this anymore! I know this thread is from over two years ago, but I thought it would be good practice. I see you placed sixty-six overlays in the scene, but your looping code only goes up to “EARTH 041”; and after looking through the animation code, I see a few naming errors. Assuming all the names for your overlays match those in your catalog, you can try this instead:

Also, when adding your “EARTH 051” overlay to the scene, you put “&overlay EARTH 036 moves to layer 2” instead of “&overlay EARTH 051 moves to layer 2”; and personally, when placing the overlays, after you have them situated where you want them, I would set all their opacities to “0 in 0” instead of “1 in 0.07” so that there are no glitches with them showing up before the animation code.
