Fading Problem- Background

Hey,

My fades are not working and I’m not quite sure why. Instead of fading smoothly, the screen goes black, and then my sound message background appears.

Could someone tell me why it might be doing this?

Thanks!

Hey so I don’t remember the exact words, so you might have to do a little trial and error :sweat_smile: but I know you have to specify if you want it to fade in white or black. I think the correct command is
@transition fade in white in (number)
But it might also be
@transition fade in white for (number)

Instead of having that many @pause for a beat in your story, use something like @pause for 4

You don’t need the INT. BLACK - NIGHT part

Thank you so so much, this was super helpful!
