๐Ÿ’‹ HOW TO: Hug and Kiss (Ink & LL)

(This guide works for BOTH styles)

Things you need to understand to make a perfect hug or kiss:

FOR REAR animations facing looks different:

Character facing rear left in the script will look like this:

@CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is idle_rear

Character facing rear right in the script will look like this:

@CHARACTER faces left AND CHARACTER is idle_rear

Basic Hug/Kiss

I placed characters in default positions, moved them to the layer and used proper facing

EXT. CAFE - DAY
&GIRL stands screen center AND GIRL faces right AND GIRL is hug_rear AND GIRL moves to layer 1
&BOY stands screen left AND BOY faces right AND BOY is hug AND BOY moves to layer -1

PNG

But they are too far from each other so I used spot directing to move the girl a bit closer to the male character

EXT. CAFE - DAY
&GIRL spot 1.280 109 -10 AND GIRL faces right AND GIRL is hug_rear AND GIRL moves to layer 1
&BOY stands screen left AND BOY faces right AND BOY is hug AND BOY moves to layer -1

Which look like this:
PNG

GIRL is at layer 1 so sheโ€™s in front of the BOY. BOY is at layer -1 so heโ€™s behind the GIRL.

Walking THEN hugging/kissing:

You need to use WALKS TO SPOT command if your character is on the screen or itโ€™s entering.

You can also use default screen positions but characters will a bit far from each other then.

EXT. CAFE - DAY
@BOY stands screen left AND BOY faces right
@GIRL enters from right to spot 1.280 131 -2 THEN GIRL faces right AND GIRL is kiss_passionate_loop_rear AND GIRL moves to layer 1 AND BOY stands screen left AND BOY faces right AND BOY is kiss_passionate_loop AND BOY moves to layer -1

How do you do the passionate kiss one when both characters are already on screen?

youโ€™d probably use the & sign. if u want them to be kissing when a scene starts

INT. BACKGROUND
&CHAR1 spot x y z and CHAR1 moves to layer 0 and CHAR1 is kiss
&CHAR2 spot x y z and CHAR2 moves to layer 1 and CHAR2 is kiss (rear)
@transition ___ in/out S

B u m p :kissing_heart:

Limelight:
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
@NAM stands screen left AND NAM faces right
@JANE enters from right to spot 1.280 108 -0 AND JANE moves to layer 1 AND NAM moves to layer -1 THEN JANE faces right AND JANE is kiss_passionate_loop_rear AND JANE moves to layer 1 AND NAM stands screen left AND NAM faces right AND NAM is kiss_passionate_loop AND NAM moves to layer -1
