Fading in and out!


#1

Okay so I need help with my fade in and out I know how to use them and were to place them but my problem is when it fades in if fades in before my Characters pop up or if I want it to go to zone 2 if will fade in, in zone 1 then jump to zone 2 how do I get it to fade in and my Character’s already there or it already in my zone? Here is how I have a scene so you can see what it looks like!
@transition fade out black 5

@zoom reset

INT. LA APARTMENT - NIGHT

@transition fade in black 5

@cut to zone 3

@QUITEN stands back right AND QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN is tinker_loop_rear

@TAYLER spot 0.552 165 209 AND TAYLER faces left AND TYLER spot 0.534 90 216 AND TYLER faces right

Try:

INT. LA APARTMENT - NIGHT
&cut to zone 3

&QUITEN stands back right AND QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN is tinker_loop_rear

&TAYLER spot 0.552 165 209 AND TAYLER faces left AND TYLER spot 0.534 90 216 AND TYLER faces right
@transition fade in black 5

If you want characters to be already in different zones:

&CHARACTER stands screen position in zone #
&CHARACTET spot % X Y in zone #
Then use pan or cut to zone

Thank you.

Maybe you will know. Can I make the zoom rest slowly?

@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in S

Thank you so much!

This zoom will slightly curve if you want a straight one just replace X Y (0 0) with zoom coordinates what you’re using :slight_smile:

Sorry one more thing. Would you happen to know how to let readers skip a chapter like if I updated and fixed some things in a Chapter?
