So I’ve been writing a few episodes of my story and I’m learning advanced directing. I have been playing with layers since then with no problems, until now. I do not know what’s wrong because I’ve been using this kind of format and my previous works were doing fine. So here’s the picture.
Technically, I want the hand in front (Eric’s hand) to be behind the other hand (Andrea’s).
This is the script I’m using:
"EXT. GAZEBO POOL HOUSE - DAY
@zoom on 410 0 to 650% in 0
@cut to zone 2
@ERIC spot 0.943 165 38 in zone 2 at layer 5 AND ANDREA spot 0.943 0 -18 in zone 2 at layer 0
&ANDREA walks to spot 0.943 50 -18 THEN ANDREA faces left THEN ANDREA is transition_stand_to_squat_neutral THEN ANDREA spot 0.943 30 18 AND ANDREA is idle_sit_anklescrossed_neutral_loop
NARRATOR One event, changed our whole lives forever.
&ERIC walks to spot 0.943 155 38 THEN ERIC faces right THEN ERIC is transition_stand_to_squat_neutral
@pause for a beat
&ERIC spot 0.943 167 -47 AND ERIC is react_shocked_gasp AND ERIC faces left"
I’ve been using it without any problems with previous layering, but now, it’s not working.
I tried increasing the layer number (1-5) for ERIC but nothing changed.
Can someone please help me?
