I need help with zooming and panning


#1

EXT. JUVIE OLIVER ROW HOME - NIGHT
@cut to zone 1
@zoom on 161 0 to 279% in 0
@AMELIA stands screen center AND AMELIA is run_neutral AND AMELIA faces right
&pan to zone 3 in 3.0
&follow AMELIA to screen right in zone 3 in 5.0 AND AMELIA does it while run_neutral_offset
OK so I had zoomed in the feet of the CHARACTER so it seems running but the camera cant catch her I want to make her running and the camera follows her and I want the zoom to be on her feet all the time what I do wrong ?

Try this!

EXT. JUVIE OLIVER ROW HOME - NIGHT
@cut to zone 1
@zoom on 161 0 to 279% in 0
@AMELIA stands screen center AND AMELIA is run_neutral AND AMELIA faces right
&pan to zone 3 in 3.0
@AMELIA walks to spot 1.280 -248 0 in zone 3 in 3 AND AMELIA is run_neutral AND AMELIA faces right

You have to add in a looping background to have that “background moving” effect.
Go to Art Catalog >>> Backgrounds >>> Tag: Looping >>> Pick anything you want.

Then place your character in a spot and have them do a running animation. For example:

LOOPING BACKGROUND NAME
&zoom on 161 0 to 279% in 0
&CHARACTER stands screen center in zone 1 AND CHARACTER starts run_athletic
@transition fade in black 1

The background will automatically move itself while your character does the animation given. All you have to do is add a zoom in command using the & symbole and you’re done! No need to do complex coding and other stuffs! But if you want to add in a specific background (not a looping one), try @Jadlyss 's template above!
