HELP: Characters walking through garden


#1

EXT. CAMPUS GARDEN - DAY
@pan to zone 2
NARRATOR
Take long walks through the gardens…
@RYAN changes into RYAN GARDEN AND @KATHRINE changes into KATHRINE CHARITY
@RYAN enters from right to screen right AND @KATHRINE enters from right to screen right
@RYAN is walk_talk_happy_loop AND @KATHRINE is walk_talk_happy_loop
@RYAN exits left AND @KATHRINE exits left

Why isn’t my characters even showing up on screen before it changes.
I am trying to get them to show the characters walking across garden.

Could you elaborate a bit more so I can help (:

You need to have them in the scene to change the outfit.

Like:

EXT. CAMPUS GARDEN - DAY
&RYAN stands screen center in zone 3 ( nobody will see him there)
&KATHRINE stands screen center in zone 3
@RYAN changes into OUTFIT
@KATHERINE changes into OUTFIT
@pan to zone 2
NARRATOR
Take long walks through the gardens…
@RYAN is walk_talk_happy_loop AND KATHRINE is walk_talk_happy_loop
@RYAN exits left AND KATHRINE exits left

( When you use the AND command you dont need to put the @ before the name )

Thank you @Alexa_x3
I have revised it, however it’s still not quite right.

EXT. CAMPUS GARDEN - DAY
@cut to zone 2
@RYAN stands screen center in zone 3 AND KATHRINE stands screen center in zone 3
@RYAN spot 0.817 114 164 AND KATHRINE spot 0.790 240 157
@RYAN changes into RYAN GARDEN AND KATHRINE changes into KATHRINE CHARITY
NARRATOR
Take long walks through the gardens…
@RYAN is walk_talk_happy_loop AND KATHRINE is walk_talk_happy_loop
@RYAN exits left AND KATHRINE exits left


#5

@RYAN changes into RYAN GARDEN AND KATHRINE changes into KATHRINE CHARITY will never work,

do this:
@RYAN changes into RYAN GARDEN
@KATHRINE changes into KATHRINE CHARITY


#6

EXT. CAMPUS GARDEN - DAY
@cut to zone 2
@RYAN stands screen center in zone 3 AND KATHRINE stands screen center in zone 3
@RYAN spot 0.817 114 164 AND KATHRINE spot 0.790 240 157
@RYAN changes into BIRTH MAN_default
@KATHRINE changes into ANSWERS_default
NARRATOR
Take long walks through the gardens…

@RYAN exits left AND RYAN does it while walk_talk_happy_loop and KATHRINE exits left AND KATHRINE does it while walk_talk_happy_loop

@RYAN walks to spot 1.195 -214 73 AND RYAN does it while walk_talk_happy_loop and KATHRINE walks to spot 1.132 -180 57 AND KATHRINE does it while walk_talk_happy_loop

This is if you want the characters not to pop off the screen

It’s not really necessary to have characters in the scene to change them into outfits. I always change mine before the scene (exactly before the background) and it works perfectly :grin:
