How can I get my character to walk infront of background characters?


#1

Hey everyone :slightly_smiling_face:

For one of my scenes I want my main character Skylar to run across the front of the school grounds but I have background characters.
I have put the characters further back at layer 0 and the person thats a bit closer at layer 1 but still when my character runs across the screen she is underneath them (if you get what I mean)
I have put:

@ SKYLAR walks to spot 0.713 371 135 in 3 AND SKYLAR is run_athletic_offset

and I also tried:

@ SKYLAR walks to spot 0.713 371 135 in 3 at layer 2 AND SKYLAR is run_athletic_offset

but the one that I have put layer 2 in says its an error.
Does anyone know if they will be able to help me ?
thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi! :slight_smile:

You could try to put her on a higher layer like five or ten.
The cause of the error could be that you forgot the zone in front of the layer.

Try this:
@SKYLAR walks to spot 0.713 371 135 in 3 in zone (1, 2 or 3) at layer 10

If that doesn‘t work try this:

&SKYLAR moves to layer 10
@SKYLAR walks to spot 0.713 371 135 in 3
