How can I have my characters already in the spot position when going on to a new scene?


#1

Hey guys :relaxed:

I don’t know whether anyone could help me but does anyone know how I can already have my characters in a spot position before I change scenes because when I re read my episode the background for that scene came up first and then after a second the character appeared!

Does anyone know how I can stop this ?
hopefully I make sense :joy:
Thank you!:slightly_smiling_face:

Place your characters at the beginning of the scene before any transitions using the & sign not the @ sign.

INT. BACKGROUND - NAME
&CHAR1 [spot] and CHAR1 faces [direction] and CHAR1 is [animation]
&CHAR2 [spot] and CHAR2 faces [direction] and CHAR2 is [animation]
&CHAR3 [spot] and CHAR3 faces [direction] and CHAR3 is [animation]
@transition fade in
