Help making characters sit in certain backgrounds?


#1

How do I make two characters sit on the couch in INT. LA APARTMENT - NIGHT

and also in INT. MOD APARTMENT - NIGHT

You need an overlay for the first background otherwise it will look weird, because the character will overlap on the coffee table, but you can also place the character on the chair in zone 2 and switch the zones while they talk

INT. LA APARTMENT - NIGHT
@CHARACTER spot 0.770 217 232 AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is sit
@cut to zone 2
@CHARACTER1 spot 0.770 278 213 in zone 2 AND CHARACTER1 faces left AND CHARACTER1 is sit

INT. MOD APARTMENT - NIGHT
@cut to zone 2
@CHARACTER spot 0.681 56 231 AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is sit
@CHARACTER1 spot 0.733 184 168 AND CHARACTER1 faces left AND CHARACTER1 is sit

You can’t really place them together on the couch because:

And I just updated spots.
Speech bubbles tend to move when characters are smaller or in different places, also when you use a zoom. You’ll have to Spot direct them, here’s how:
