Surprisingly I can help you out! Lol I’m very bad at this stuff. Do you want the character pacing or just walking while on screen?

thank you! Yes i want the character to just walk

basically You need to change the position you want it to be at

@TheGracefulCrow beat me to it lol

If from a specific spot you will need to use spot directing and write that you want the character to walk to the certain position:

@character walks to (position)

Position meaning the numbers you want the a character at

I’m sorry i don’t understand
Do i have to place the character before they walk to the certain position?

Yeah
For example:

BACKGROUND

@CHARACTER stands screen left in zone 1

@CHARACTER walks to screen right

ohh okay
Thank you!

From specific spot:

@CHARACTER spot % X1 Y

@CHARACTER walks to spot % X2 Y

% = first number, the height of the character

X = second number (character walks from left to right or right to left)

X1 = value offscreen

X2= value onscreen

Y = third number (character walks up, down)

Place your character in your scene, copy the coordinates you get. The place them offscreen and leave first number and third number alone, change only the second (middle number) as that is the character walking from left to right or right to left in a straight line.

Example:

@CHARACTER spot 1.280 -100 0

@CHARACTER walks to spot 1.280 160 0

% = 1.280
X1= -100 (offscreen left, lower numbers left, higher numbers to the right)
X2= 160 (onscreen)
Y = 0

The character walks into the scene in a straight line.
