Help! I can't cut to another scene


#1

So I’m writing a story, and to cut to another scene I write, @cut to zone 2 or 3 and normally it’s worked, but today while I was writing, it just stayed in zone 1. Please help!


#2

Can I see your script and the error so I can better help you?


#3

There isn’t an error, It’s just when I preview it, it’s always in zone 1. I’ve also tried using other backgrounds, but this is the script:


#4

Oh Okay then theres nothing wrong with your script. It’s just the preview section in the writer’s portal is prone to errors like this. I suggest you preview the story in your app it’s much better and you can’t get any errors that way. :slight_smile:


#5

Really, this has never happened before but now I feel quite dumb…


#6

Thanks anyway!


#7

Nah don’t worry.


#8

Transition is spelled wrong. (I don’t know if you got that yet.) That being wrong will mess with the rest of your script.


#9

You put a background after @cut to zone 2
That’s why


#10

INT. HOME OFFICE - DAY
@cut to zone 2


#11

It is wrong. Where it says fade out 2 it’s supposed to say fade out black in 2


#12

@transition fade out black in 2


#13

I think that is fine. It defaults to black if you don’t specify a color.


#14

Her code is correct. She just spelled “transition” wrong. The transition code can be any of these:

@transition fade out 2
@transition fade out in 2
@transition fade out black 2
@transition fade out black in 2


#15

And what “fade in” mean?


#16

The fade goes from dark to light, rather than how for out it goes light to dark.
