#1

I was wondering how do you switch back and forth from one setting or place to another. Like I want one of my character to be in his room in Ohio and the other (girl) to be in her room in Italy but they’re doing the same thing, reaching for a necklace and then wearing it. I want to show this in .1 seconds so it shows like a quick glimpse of the other MC but not completely since I haven’t introduced her yet if you know what I mean. Can someone show how to do this with coding, please?

Thank you! <3

Can you show me the background you want

pv2_back_INT__ISLAND_BEDROOM___DAY

These 2

I don’t really know, maybe you can make one background an overlay than do that:
INT. THE FIRST ONE - DAY with THE SECOND ONE
@overlay THE SECOND ONE shifts to x y (the right place)
@overlay THE SECOND ONE scales blah blah
@CHARACTER is grab_thing
@overlay THE SECOND ONE shifts x y (offscreen)
or
@overlay THE SECOND ONE opacity 0
I hope it helps!

P.S grab_thing isn’t an animation just to be clear :joy:
You can use pickup_object_neutral


#6

Or did you mean showing a half of the room and a half of the other room?

No, it’s not supposed to be half of each background. I just want to switch between the 2 backgrounds real fast to show that both the MC’s are picking up their necklace at the same time and wearing it. I want to show that they both remember each other even if they’re thousands of miles apart.

Use the & sign for the character and use a pause, then switch back to the other background.

INT. BACKGROUND - DAY
&CHARACTER [spot] and CHARACTER is [pick up animation]
@pause for 0.5

Then go back to the other background. (the pause can be however short/long you want)
