Having characters already in scene


#1

I want my characters to already be on the screen but I don’t want them just standing around. I want one character laying on the ground and another standing talking. Please someone show me how to do this! Thank y’all so much! script%20placement

Instead of using “@” use “&” instead. For example:

EXT. NORTH PHILADELPHIA STREET - NIGHT with effect LIGHT RAIN
@zoom reset
&ADELINA spot 0.982 382 123
@ADELINA is idle_lay_exhausted_loop
&NADIA stands screen right AND NADIA faces left
@NADIA is kick_crotch_give

Thank you so much for your help, but is’t not working with this character. I want him in zone 2 and laying on the floor how do I do this?

&WILLIAM spot 1.280 91 -121 in zone 2 AND WILLIAM is idle_lay_groggy_neutral_loop

Using & and starts will aid you.

Btw, which style are you using?


#6

Looks like you are using limelight, and I suggest you put the spotting before the animation or they will do the animation in some random screen then they will be at the spot you put them in or just use some thing like this

EXT. NORTH PHILADELPHIA STREET - NIGHT with effect LIGHT RAIN
@cut to zone 2
@ADELINA spot 0.982 382 123 AND ADELINA starts idle_lay_exhausted_loop
@NADIA stands screen right AND NADIA faces left AND NADIA starts kick_crotch_give

Hope this helped! :smile:
