  1. Go back to your script and type the word “sound” and what sound you would like.

  1. When you have finished using your sound type “sound off”

How to: Music!

  1. Go back to the drop down menu and click sounds again.

  2. Scroll down until you see something that starts with the word “Music”

image

  1. Do not insert it.

  2. Go to your script and type “music” and then the music you would like NOTE: For this one you will want to put music two times since it won’t work if you just put for eg: music dreamwalk you would have to put music music_dreamwalk.

  1. Now just type “music off” for it to be off when you would like.

How to: FILTERS!

  1. Go to the drop down menu and select “Filters”

  2. Select any of them from the drop down menu and it should appear in your script.

If you would like to customise it please continue this section.

  1. Click Directing Helper

  2. Click “Filters helper”

  3. This will reset the filter, but do not worry!

  4. Now have a look here. This is how you are going to customize the filter.

  1. If you are on Web Previewer dragging right makes the numbers smaller and dragging left makes the numbers bigger. Mobile device users should just fiddle about to work out which way makes things smaller and bigger,

  2. Now just select what you would like to change (Mine was Saturation) and go crazy!

  3. Once you have finished have a look at this area on your script.

Erase that part and for mobile users, have a look at the bottom left of your screen and study it carefully, Web Previewers (People on laptop) scroll down to this bit:

image

Mobile users, copy down the text, and people who are web previewing it just hit copy and then paste.

  1. Once you are finished with your filter copy this command:

     @reset hsl 
    

Now you are done!

How to: WEATHER EFFECTS!

  1. All you need to do is put INT./EXT.BACKGROUND with effect (WEATHER EFFECT)

  2. To get the weather effects go to the drop down menu and go to “Weather Effects”

  3. Now pick from there and your coding should look like this:

EG:

And that’s it!

Weather effects how?
#2

Ok I am not sure if this happens to u but when I use a filter and got look in the app I get this

???

Also I read a story and this came out


#3

Hi, sorry I have been offline,
Just copy this into the start of your script:

@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 0


#4

Only when I put filters it does that but when I don’t it looks normal


#5

If it always does that when the filter is on just after the filter is coded paste it in.


#6

It just started doing that


#7

I’ve actually never seen that before. It might be a glitch. Can I see your code?


#8

INT. CLASSIC LIVING ROOM - DAY

@set hsl 0 -100 0 no_colorize with blendMode NORMAL to 100%

@NANCY changes into Nancylittle

@cut to zone 2

@zoom reset

@NANCY spot 0.988 200 34


#9

Try adding the zoom reset before the filter.


#10

Where you zoomed in before the background change?


#11

Yeah


#12

Odd place to be zoomed in to. Anyways, add the @zoom reset right after the background change


#13

I did


#14

Its still the same


#15

So it’s definitley a glitch. I suggest you submit a ticket to admin.


#16

Ok thanks


#17

How do you get rid of the weather effect?


#18

You have to write out the background again without the weather effect. For example:

INT. BLACK - DAY with effect LIGHT RAIN

You would change it to

INT. BLACK - DAY


#19

Thank you so much!


#20

Can you tell me how to make the screen darker? Like if it’s a day scene but it looks like nighttime? (Maybe you know what I’m talking about?) kind of like a filter.
