Instant help required for writing correct script format for one of my scene

@transition fade out black

@transition fade in black

@pan to zone 2
@ME is sit and ME starts write_notepad

probably one can easily identify what i am trying to do, i want “me” character to take notes while she is sitting in the scenario behind the desk.
and rest of the characters sitting on their respective seats. can anyone help?
and i also want to make it look like entering another scene (the reason why i used transition command. plus i really dont know how to use fade outs.

Alright so, what you want to do is fade in the scene to you writing with another character beside you?

I can help!
With transitions, you want them after you’ve set the background.

So your script would look like:

&cut to zone 2
&ME stands upscreen right and ME faces right and ME is write_notepad
&OTHER stands upscreen left and OTHER faces right and OTHER is yawn_bored
@transition fade in black

See how I’ve used the & instead of the @?
That’s because in the scripts, the & means you want that action to be done at the same time as the next @ command. So in what I’ve written, I want everything to be done at the same time as the transition.

I’ve also used the &cut to zone 2 instead of &pan to zone 2.
This is so that your camera isn’t moving when you start the scene up.

Hope this helps!

this is one zone background, you cut to to zone 2 that’s why is black. To show other students you need to just make a separate scene for each one of them on this background


Exactly what @Apes said :smiley:
