How to make a zoom follow a character while walking?

Does anyone know how to make the camera follow a character while it’s still zoomed in?

&zoom on X Y to % in S
@CHAR walks to spot X Y Z in S

LMK if you need more help!

I used the code you gave me but the zoom always starts moving a few seconds after the character walks. Here’s my script;

EXT. MG DINER - NIGHT

@zoom on 0 64 to 913% in 0

@transition fade in black 5

@CHARACTER spot 0.343 -148 277 in zone 1

@pause for a beat

&zoom on 145 64 to 913% in 7

@CHARACTER walks to spot 0.343 144 277 in 7

I think your spotting is wrong. Try this.

EXT. MG DINER - NIGHT
@zoom on 0 64 to 913% in 0
@CHAR spot 0.343 19 274 in zone 1 AND CHAR faces right
&zoom on 145 64 to 913% in 7
&CHAR walks to spot 0.343 144 277 in 7

&pan to zone #
&zoom on x y % in T
@CHAR walks to spot x y z in T

Or you can put the zoom above the pan.
You can also use the @ sign for zoom.
