How can I make a weather choice

How can I make a weather choice


#2

Do you mean how to add a weather effect?

EXT. ABANDONED HOME - DAY with TABLE CAFE with effect HARD SNOW


#3

You add it as an effect with the background for example:

EXT. ABANDONED HOME - DAY with effect LIGHT RAIN

so the template for the effect is:

BACKGROUND NAME with effect WEATHER EFFECT NAME


#4

I know that but when I try to put it in a choice it dosent work


#5

Can you elaborate?


#6

Are you trying to let the reader decide the weather?

If so, you’ll need to add the weather effect to a new background. You can not add a weather effect mid-scene (from what I know).


#7

I’m quite sure that you can’t add weather in the middle of any scene…
So I’m thinking that you would need to put your scenario twice.
For example:

EXT. BLAHBLAH - DAY
@yourcharacter position

and then you add the choices but also need to change de background with it. So…

EXT. BLAHBLAH - DAY with effect RAIN
@yourcharacter same position

I hope this actually works.
Let me know if it does! <3
