Help Character name changing

Hey guys I’m writing a new episode. I need to change one of my characters’ name for one episode. How can I change the name or don’t show the name at all? Hope you can understand what I’m trying to say.

You could duplicate your existing character.

You could create a new character with the other name, spot direct the character off screen and spot direct that character’s speech bubble.

Example scene
[YOUR CHARACTER] @CHARACTER spot 0.955 85 112 in zone 1 at layer #
[CHARACTER WITH NEW NAME] @NEWNAME spot 0.955 -150 112 in zone 1 (or put them in a different zone)

@speechbubble is 163 410 to 100% (this is just an example)
This is the dialogue.
@speechbubble reset

To remove the NEWNAME character from the scene, use @remove NEWNAME.

To not show a name at all you could use the narrator bubble.

This is the dialogue.

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since this is about coding. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics, and feel to PM me if there are any questions. :wink:

Oh… Thank you so much…
But what if I don’t want to show the character’s name on talking speechbubble?
I’ve seen it on other’s stories. They didn’t use narrator bubble.

Hehe… Thank you :sweat_smile:

You’d still have to create a new character (so option one or option two) and leave the display name of the character empty.

Thank you so much
