How do I pan while walking? (+zoom)

howto

#1

I want to pan my character to * spot * and only show her legs while she’s walking. How do I do this?

Ps. I’m sorry:

  • for bad English
  • if you didn’t understand cuz I’m incredible bad at explaining
  • if this is in wrong place

#2

You do @follow CHARACTER to zone#


#3

It says its not a valid directing command


#4

Can I see your code


#5

@cut to zone 1

&zoom on 0 0 to 610% in 0

@BGWOMAN3 walks to spot 1.086 30 59 in zone 1 in 3

@pause for 1

&pan to zone 2 in 5

@BGWOMAN3 walks to spot 1.086 37 59 in zone 2 in 15 AND BGWOMAN3 does it while walk_neutral

&zoom on 10 0 to 610% in 20

&BGWOMAN3 walks to spot 1.086 37 59 in zone 2 in 15 AND BGWOMAN3 faces right

@pause for 15

&BGWOMAN3 starts idle_awkward


#6

Instead of “Does it while” try and


#7

‘‘use @CHARACTER walks to x y z in s’’


#8

You should try @Dara.Amarie thread


#9

Use
@follow CHARACTER to POSITION in zone X AND CHARACTER is ACTION and CHARACTER faces DIRECTION

Position might be screen left, screen right,…
X is the number of the zone
Action is one of the actions in the portal, for example walk_offset (in ink)
Direction is either left or right

And if you wanna show legs only you need to zoom on legs

Yeah, you need to put the same amount of seconds that you have in your pan, you have your character walking at 15 secs not 5

You can’t use the @ follow command when you walk to a spot.

So use &pan to zone 2 in 5
@BGWOMAN3 walks to spot X Y Z in zone 2 in 5 AND BGWOMAN3 does it while walk_neutral


#11

I just did it like this:


@zoom reset

@cut to zone 1

&zoom on 0 0 to 610% in 0

@BGWOMAN3 walks to spot 1.086 30 59 in zone 1 in 3

@pause for 1

&pan to zone 2

&BGMAN1 starts talk_excited

&BGWOMAN1 starts talk_think

&zoom on 340 0 to 580% in 15

@BGWOMAN3 walks to spot 1.086 37 59 in zone 2 in 15 AND BGWOMAN3 does it while walk_neutral


In the first one I put 5 and 15 cuz it was just moving way too slowly - and to the spot I didn’t want it to zoom on.

And yeah, there’s the same time

If you want the camera to follow the person as they walk, you need to change the pan seconds, not the zoom seconds. You changed the zoom seconds.
