Driving speed issues?

Hi everyone, I am having issues with a car overlay exiting a scene. Below is the scipt for the scene in question and my problem is that the car and the character of Caitlin do not leave the scene at the same speed, I’ve tried it many different ways but I can’t figure it out. I want it to look as though Caitlin is driving out of the scene so if you can help me that would be great, thank you :slight_smile: xx

Because you’re making the car move in 5 seconds but making your character walk in 3.5 seconds. You need to make them both move in the same amount of seconds.

But when I tried the same amount of seconds they didn’t appear to move at the same speed.

Just tried it again and the car apears to move faster than the character, Caitlin is disppears from the scene like half a second after the car does.

Check the spots to see if they are moving to the same positions. Check out this thread: 🚗 HOW TO: Drive into / Drive Off the scene with Character inside

Thanks, I’ll have to look in the morning, I just realised that its 1:15 am where I am so I jsut probably get to bed, if I have any more issues I’ll be sure to message you for more assistance if thats ok, good night :slight_smile:

Sorry, its taken me a while, I’ve been busy, but its still not working, my character is still leaving the scene at a later time, I’ve looked at various things to try and help me but I can’t figure it out. I must seem like such an idiot for not figuring it out myself but it would be great if you could offer me some pointers, thanks :slight_smile:

Your character is walking to a spot in zone 3, while the car overlay is shifting to a spot beyond zone 3. The overlay and character need to move to the same zone.
