How to Fade One Character Or More


#1

What you need:

  • Two backgrounds (the same backgrounds)
  • One or more characters

What you have to do:
Choose the background that you want from the Art Catalog, save it then make it an overlay. Select a name. Wait him to be reviewed then put in your script.

INT. BACKGROUND - DAY with BACKGROUND OVERLAY at layer 1
@CHAR1 stands screen center AND CHAR1 faces right
@CHAR1 moves to layer 2
@pause for a beat
@overlay BACKGROUND OVERLAY moves to layer 2 
@overlay BACKGROUND OVERLAY opacity 0.5 in 0
EXAMPLE

You can do this for more characters.

IMPORTANT!!

Always move the character/s with a layer (or more) smaller than the overlay.
