I'll help you with directing. ❤️

Okay I see the problem:

for thread owner: I’m sorry, this is not my thread so if you don’t want me to help tell me lmao

You should put the transition after you’ve set the scene. With ‘set’ I mean the character spots, clothes, music etc. Everythink that already has to be there when the transition fades in. For the overlays:

@overlay SILVER BALL _LOLLIPOP SCULPTURE shifts to -12 -5 in in 0 zone 1
@overlay SILVER BALL _LOLLIPOP SCULPTURE scales to 3.012 3.012 in 0

these are the places to add ‘in T’! Hope this helps <3


Oh thank you!!! :kissing_heart: :clapping:

The overlays I can now make sure are where they are supposed to be at the beginning. But, I still don’t understand how to use “set”. I am having a blond moment possibly, but I still don’t understand . How am I supposed to set the scene or the characters so that they are already where they are supposed to be and doing whatever actions needed before the scene fades in black?

You move every code, that already has to be there when entering the scene, above the line ‘@transition fade in black 0.1’.

Okay I’m looking at your code but you don’t use a fade in lmao. Okay in this case, use ‘&’ instead of ‘@’. Note that this does not work with ‘changes into’. Tell me if you understand or if it works <3

Thank you very much. I have to go back and see if I can follow what you are saying. I use @transition fade in black in 4 at the end of the coding , so that all of the actions etc. are already in place and where they are supposed to be. But, naturally … I don’t think I have been doing it right. :rofl:

I have to go back and see if I understood your directions. I greatly appreciate everything you have shared thusfar!!! :hearts:

I know for a fact the overlays are working. I just have to get he people, to stay where they are supposed to be as well. But, as soon as I get back to the story, I am absolutely going to let you know everything that I discovered!!!


Hi there! I need a little help with one thing. I’m having a hard time trying to figure out how to get rid of backround characters when I zoom on the MC. Basically, I don’t want them showing in the zoom but it’s a little troublesome. Doing @remove (character) feels a little too quick and strange when I do it. I’ve tried simply moving the characters while doing an animation. Although moving them works, it still looks a little weird. Is there any other way to remove them? If not then I’ll just stick with this.

You need to change the volume of your sound/music. I gave an example of how I do that in my other message. Always remember to check if your sound is on under the preview. :heart:

Thank you❤️

Hmm, I’ve never done this before,but I think you could try fading in and out the characters. Here’s a link to a guide on how to fade in/out characters:

I’m sorry I can’t answer this myself, I’m currently busy volunteering a lot.


Oh no it’s okay. I’ve been so busy the past few days and probably for the next week and a half too. I didn’t even get a notification haha. Thank you for taking care of it. The important thing is helping one another❤️

I think it works the same way.

I have a link on how to remember past choices right here, but since you already know how it works you probably don’t need it.

I recommend testing if the choices work on the episode app and not the writer’s portal and always remember to reset your story progress.
