hey so I’m new to writing a story for episode, and I’ve been going alright so far but I can’t seem to fix these coding errors I’ve tried everything but nothing seems to be working, does anyone know what I’ve done wrong?
Your whole script is wrong, if you could put it here it would be better.
okay thank you one second
@MEL enters from right AND MEL is run_stemware_neutral_loop
@BACKGROUND 2 stands back far right AND is listen_phone_confused
@BACKGROUND 4 enters from back left AND BACKGROUND 4 exits back right
MEL (talk_gossip) Do you wanna come back to my house and we can study and get something to eat? ELLA (talk_accuse_angry) Only if i get to pick the restaurant this time
@MEL is talk_whatever_apathetic
@MEL exits left AND MEL is walk_talk_happy_loop AND ELLA exits left AND ELLA is walk_talk_happy_loop
@MEL enters faces right AND MEL is rear
Before I help you this video could help you in the directions since there are many that you you have and I couldn’t guess where your characters might be.
Question for you , are BACKGROUND 2 and BACKGROUND 4 characters ?
yes they are just background characters so that’s why i name them that
okay I will check it out thank you
Alright I can help you with your script unless @phoenix.brunet is already working on it .
she just showed me a video to watch but if you could help that would be amazing
Sure I’ll code it out for you but I would recommend watching YouTube videos on how to code .
thank you so much, i have been watching a ton but i think I’m still a bit confused when i cant find a video on what i trying to do
Oh , I’ll pm you the code when I have it .
okay thank you so much for helping
Catniss is already helping you and also Dara’s guides are super helpful and could help you.
i will check this out aswell thank you
Oh, I see the problem here. You’re making your own code. Unfortunately, the portal doesn’t accept that. Is someone helping you or is it okay if I could just point them out to you here?
i had someone help me with it and we got it fixed but thank you
Moved to Directing Help and Tips since this is about coding. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about creating topics, and feel free to PM me if you’ve got questions.
Here’s the correct code for you You’ll just need to copy and paste it.
INT. ACADEMIC HALL - DAY @MEL stands screen right and MEL faces right AND ELLA stands screen left AND ELLA faces right @BACKGROUND 2 stands back far right AND BACKGROUND 2 is listen_phone_confused @BACKGROUND 4 enters from left to screen center THEN BACKGROUND 4 exits right MEL (talk_gossip) Do you wanna come back to my house and we can study and get something to eat? ELLA (talk_accuse_angry) Only if I get to pick the restaurant this time. @MEL exits left AND MEL does it while walk_talk_happy_loop AND ELLA exits left AND ELLA does it while walk_talk_happy_loop INT. CLASSIC LIVING ROOM - DAY &DAD spot 0.697 187 252 AND DAD faces left AND DAD is idle_sit_neutral_loop @MEL enters from right to screen center AND ELLA enters from right to screen right MEL (talk_greet_neutral) Hey Dad. How are you? MEL (talk_shrug_neutral) I hope it's okay that Ella came over to study.
I had to change some of your positioning, you can change that to your liking of course.
The code for entering a scene:
@CHARACTER enter from right/left to screen right/left/center
Code for exiting:
@CHARACTER exits right/left AND CHARACTER does it while [animation]
Code for position:
@CHARACTER stands [position} AND CHARACTER faces right/left AND CHARACTER is [animation]
@CHARACTER spot x y z AND CHARACTER faces right/left AND CHARACTER is [animation]
I hope this helps Let me know if it worked and if you need more help
