Having trouble with sounds!


#1

In one scene, I have two characters having a “stare-down”. When I zoom back and forth between the characters, I use the sound “gunshot”. However, the sound gets cut off when I preview it in the app and it sounds weird. Here’s my script:
@MONICA is jazzhands
sound gunshot
@zoom on 888 394 to 1182% in 0
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
sound off
&zoom reset
&cut to zone 2
@zoom on 582 494 to 523% in 0
sound gunshot
&STELLA is idle_angry_arms_crossed
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
sound off
&cut to zone 3
&zoom reset
sound gunshot
&MONICA is talk_sheepish
@zoom on 902 415 to 514% in 0
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
&cut to zone 2
&zoom reset
sound gunshot
&STELLA is arms_crossed_angry
@zoom on 582 494 to 523% in 0
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat

As you can see, I leave plenty of pauses so the sound can carry out, and I have an action after the sound because I read somewhere that that helps. I have to have the code “sound off” otherwise the next sound won’t play at all. Any help is welcome! Thanks!

You don’t have to put “sound off”


#3

That’s what I thought at first, but if I don’t put “sound off” the next sound won’t play at all :confused:


#4

Put pause for a beat


#5

How about changing the &'s in the cut’s and zoom’s too @'s
This could be the problem…


#6

I’ll try that!


#7

It didn’t work :confused: Another note, the sounds are fine in the portal preview but on the app preview they don’t work


#8

I already have two and another pause would make the stares too long for my liking… I’ll try it if nothing else works


#9

The app is being really glitchy, so don’t worry about it. the episode team has had a high volume of problems within the app.


#10

Nothing is wrong with your script. Episode’s app is being really glitchy.


#11

Okay, I won’t be publishing for a while so I’ll wait and see :slight_smile:


#12

But if it isn’t right in the app tester, your readers will have the same problem @brvnda


#13

I think it is music off instead of sound off


#14

No they won’t, my app has been extremely glitchy which causes me not to hear any music or sound but my readers hear it. :woman_shrugging:t5:


#15

it’s sound off because she’s using sound and not music


#16

The “gunshot” isn’t music, it’s sound, so using music off wouldn’t affect the sound


#17

I think it is still music off no matter what


#18

It’s not , lol. It’s not a matter of thinking, it’s just if it’s sound you use sound off command. If it’s music, you use music off.


#19

Okay

Thanks for your suggestion though!
