Guiding Characters


#1

How do I make a character stand in the center screen in zone 2 so that when I have other characters walking in the character is already standing there posing?
INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY
@MANNEQUIN in zone 2
@MANNEQUIN does it while (laugh_giggle_pose)
@cut to zone 2
?

You have to do it offscreen

INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY
&MANNEQUIN stands screen center in zone 2 AND MANNEQUIN starts laugh_giggle_pose
@pause for 2 (adjust the pause to how long it takes to animation to finish)
@cut to zone 2


#3

When you say &MANNEQUIN I have to use an actual & symbol?


#4

Yes, use &

How and When to Use @ and &


#5

That makes sense thank you for the link I had some previous incounters with & and was very confused! :slightly_smiling_face:

Always happy to help! :slight_smile:

I have another question which isn’t really directing, it is about text effects I want to say
OMG! You remembered.
I want OMG! to have the italic with color salmon and animation shake but I don’t want the rest of the sentence to have that how do I make it only do one word?

Use | reset | before the rest of the words :slight_smile:
