If I want to create a scene where people are standing and listening to someone speak or in a concert, how do I do that? I have tried multiple things but nothing seems to work!

Are you using Ink or Limelight?

Ink

You can use the crowd script templates provided by Episode.

When I am directing a scene with a lot of people, I use up to 20 layers. I start spot directing with the furthest layer and work my way forward. If you want characters to move without actually moving, you have them walk to the new spot AND “does it while” the animation they are performing THEN animation. It’s can be a long tedious process, and if you have too many characters on the screen it can lag out reader’s devices.
