Help With Transition


#1

Is there a way to transition out as the narrator speaks? :purple_heart:


#2

not sure if this is right but try this:

&transition fade out black in 4

NARRATOR
(insert text)

INT. NEW SCENE - DAY


#3

It’s said that that’s not a valid directing command :woman_shrugging::woman_shrugging:


#4

hm then i’m not sure


#5

Ok, thx anyways!


#6

You can’t use the & symbol with transitions. So i don’t think there’s a way to do that.


#7

When doing it use @transition NOT &
I Personally like @transition fade out black


#8

You CAN do:
&CHARACTER is talk_neutral
@transition fade out black


#9

I do think that there is a specific way to do that but try:

NARRATOR
Your words here.

&transition fade out black


#10

Symbol & doesn’t work with transitions, unfortunately


#11

Oh okay nevermind thank you


#12

Like I said it has to be @transition

If you want to fade out to black while the Narrator speaks, you could use an all black overlay and have the opacity go from 0 to 1 while the narrator is talking to make it appear as if you’re fading out to black.

@overlay BLACK create
@overlay BLACK scales to 1 1 in 0
@overlay BLACK shifts to 100 100 in zone # in 0
@overlay BLACK opacity 0 in 0

&overlay BLACK opacity 1 in 2
NARRATOR
Dialogue.
