Spot directing is a pain to learn, but once you get the basics down it becomes pretty easy! What questions do you have regarding it?

ok so when I’m writing a scene how do i get the characters to not just pop up on the screen and how can i get a character to walk into the scene to the spot i want?

Every time i do it, it looks shitty!

You can place them off-screen and have them walk to a new location. Say, for example, you want your character to walk from the left side of the screen to spot 1.000 50 50 in zone 1, you could write:

@CHARACTER spot 1.000 -100 50 in zone 1
@CHARACTER walks to spot 1.000 50 50 in zone 1 AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is walk_neutral

Their size will remain the same, as will their y-coordinate, so they’ll walk a horizontal line from off-screen to the spot you choose
