I’m trying to code someone with powers…

Basically my LI encounters a creep in the alleyway and he gets mad and releases his fire powers (a massive flame) and I don’t know how to code it. I need the flame to appear out of his hand (being small first) then when it hits the other character I need it to enlarge. Before this happened there’s another scene in another zone with the same background and the overlay gets in the way. ( I hope someone can help)

You need to make it fade into the hand and then have it scale and shift at the same time to get to the other character

Oh ok. I’m a beginner at writing stories, so I was wondering if there would be a template anywhere for this?

I could make it for you if you give me the bg, overlays, and character positions

So the background is Ext.North Philadelphia Alleyway-night with Fire (the overlay)
The creep stands screen right and Xander stands screen left
The overlay is called Fire
Also ty soo much for helping me :revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts:
