Help !Animation behaviors

Hey guys
I notice something weird, how can I explain that?
When I put animation behaviors (like idle or react behaviors ) on my script there is a little pause before the script continues but when playing an episode story from other authors I don’t notice that little pause, the character does the animation right away.
Is there a tip directing that makes the character behave right away?

Try using “THEN”. For example after someone finishes walking to their spot, after you can add THEN.

@char walks to spot … in T THEN char is animation

are you trying to do something else other than after walking ?

It is more like in a middle of a conversation after a loop animation ( like talk_armscrossed_neutral_loop)
I want my character to stop talking so just after that I put idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop but there is a little pause before the other character continues the conversation

A bit long sorry

where exactly is this happening ? do you mean here

if so, write & HAILEY is idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop if you want them to do the animation while the other is talking, without a pause

when Diana passes and does the greeting sign i want Jeanne to continue on her strip but she had to wait for Diana to exit the scene before she starts talking again

:sob: :sob: :sob:
All this fuss for that little symbol?

It makes a great difference :sweat_smile:

do you mean here??

I would do it like this

&DIANA moves to layer 3
&DIANA walks to spot 1.152 251 27 in zone 1 AND DIANA does it while walk_neutral
&HAILEY is idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop AND LOLA is idle_shiftweight_neutral_loop
JEANNE (talk_phone_surprised_loop)
You saw the penthouses on our website and want to book one of them?

maybe it would be good if you quoted which lines it is

thank you so much it’s make a big difference
