Help with Camera Directing

So, I am currently trying to do camera directing and I’ve seen authors that switch the camera back and forth. I do the first part and then, once I want to do another character, there is a pause because that character needed to move. Can anyone help me?

Place both the characters down in the beginning of the scene and then only focus on one. Then you can zoom to the other one or cut to the zone the other one is in. They will already be there, so there shouldn’t be any pause. Hopefully this is what you mean

Wait, idk if this is what you meant sorry lol :sweat_smile:

Like, the second character just disappears and I am having trouble with that. I removed the “@cut to zone 1” because it already is on zone 1.

Like the second character doesn’t show up?

It did, after like a second. Do you want me to show my script?

If you can, sure

There is basically a small pause, and then the camera stuff happens. Plus, I am having trouble with the character disappearing.

I’m gonna look at it through the portal right now and see what happens

Alright, thank you! :))
