Can I see your code? @butterfly098

I’m trying to do what they do in the tutorial on the app, 3.4 walking background actors

if I understand you are watching the tutorial ----so just see the script in this scpecific part and you will see how thay do it:

@zoom reset
@JOHN spot .9 -50 200 in zone 1 at layer 0
@JOHN faces right
@MARIE spot 1.280 100 0 in zone 1 at layer 1
@MARIE faces right
@ALISON spot 1.280 270 0 in zone 1 at layer 1
@ALISON faces left
@cut to zone 1
@ALISON is talk_shrug AND MARIE is idle_shift_weight
@MARIE is laugh_giggle AND ALISON is idle_arms_crossed
&JOHN walks to spot .9 400 200 in 3.1
@ALISON is talk_gossip AND MARIE is listen_gossip
@ALISON is idle_happy AND MARIE is laugh_crack_up
@pause for a beat
@ALISON starts idle AND MARIE starts idle
@pause for a beat

first thay spot him ofscreen and than thay walk him using &

also it is important to put him on lower layer because he should be walking behind the girls

How did you find the script??

when you open the tutorials from the writers portal (not from app) - you see it as any other story on the left is the script on the right the preview…its meant to be used from the portal so you can learn directly from the scripts…
