@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 0.640 0.640

@POLL starts nod_loop
&YOU enters from left to screen right


#4

Alright, give me a second. :slight_smile:

Wait, so you want the first background to stay for a while? You should add a transition. Like this.

EXT. EAST COAST COLLEGE - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER
@YOU spot 0.677 180 85
@POLL spot 0.679 225 86
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -72 5
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 0.640 0.640
@transition fade in

You can do whatever transition you want, check out this link!

Note: My example doesn’t have to be yours, there are so many transitions. If you need further help, I’ll be waiting. :slight_smile:


#6

Right after the transition, it will go to the next background. I don’t know if that’s what you are talking about. :slightly_frowning_face:


#7

thank you!


#8

Oh, it worked! Well then. :slight_smile: Have a lovely day!


#9

I just found out that it didn’t work… can you help again, it only shows for a second and goes to the next background


#10

@transition fade in black 2.0

The '2.0" stands for how long you want it to last. The ‘black’ stands for the color it fades out. And the transition is what you want it to be. This is just an example!


#11

You don’t have any beats for that scene. A beat is basically 1 second. So transition in then you can pause for how ever many seconds you want.

@transition fade in
@pause for 3


#12

Her method is better than mine, I apologize anyways. :thinking:


#13

no need to apologize you just tryed to help


#14

How many @pause for do I need, what number??


#15

never mind, i fiugered it out


#16

That’s your choice, you can put it as long as you want the background to last.


#17

Oh okay, happy writing. :slight_smile:
