Hey you:)
I’ve started writing my first story, but I’ve got problem. I wanted to spot direct my character, but when I put her in the back I can’t make her smaller. In one guide I saw that you can do that with the App, when you use Direct Helper, Spot Helper and then Change Hight. But, when I click on Spot Helper I gert not other buttons besides one, which makes me change my character but nothing else. I really don’t know what to do and I hoped maybe you could help me.

Hey, I don’t know if you have been helped! But on the App once you hit spot directer you move the character around with your fingers and change their height that way and move them to where you want them in the scene. And don’t forget to write the numbers below the say spot xxx xxx. Joseph Evans has a you tube video on spot directing. It is very helpful.

Ahhhh, I got it, thank you so much!:slight_smile:
But now I’ve got another problem… .-. (Sorry for that)
I wanted to have three people in the back and my main character in the front.
So I wrote it like this:

INT. CLASSROOM FRONT OL - DAY
@cut to zone 2
@LEE spot 0.462 182 584 AND LEE is react_sit_checkphone_bored
@ROSE spot 0.786 287 216 AND ROSE is admire_happy
@LILY spot 0.588 88 414 AND LILY is idle_bounce_happy_loop AND LILY faces right

@YOU enters from left to screen center
@YOU is wave_extreme

BUT, now the characters are appearing one after another not all together. And I don’t know I make them appeaar there all at the same time.
Would be great if you could help me again.
Linda :heart:

Its simple just there are 2 mistakes here first make all the spot and others together like this
@LEE spot … And LEE is … And ROSE spot… And ROSE is … And LILY spot… And LILY is… And LILY faces…
Just combine them like this without using @ and using AND command
2 mistake is that if you use a lot of characters in your scenes already standing there on there position and when you start scene they should be there for that after combining them
Than use
@Cut to zone 2 or @pan to zone 2
I hope it is helping
