Manna's Help Thread: For coding, directing and more


Amazing! I’m glad you were able to fix it
I’ll be happy to read your story

Thanks I’ll let you know when I’ll finish my story, thanks a lot! :slight_smile:

Would love to read it when you are done.

Thank you a lot!

So I want my story for this girl to have powers and I want the overlay to fade in and shift the overlay like for example she’s throwing a fireball with her powers at someone can you give me an example of a code that would do that?

Here a post from the lovely @Dara.Amarie that can help:

A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

thanks again


So I want to make choice matter but I want all the choices that where made in the other episodes to matter if you get a bad ending or good ending how would i do that and also you do you remember an outfit that was worn in the last episode

What if you want it to base off many choices? that a reader makes

Just keep making labels and gains, they’re unlimited

If you still need more info I actually just saw this guide made by the awesome @Dara.Amarie:

HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)


This may be a hard question but I want to make a animated intro and I want to zoom in and while I’m zooming in I want my overlay to fade in like a text overlay how would I do that?

It isn’t a hard question at all.

It is fairly simple. Just upload your overlay/overlays and then check the example below:

INT. BLACK - DAY with OVERLAY NAME to % x y in zone 1 at layer 1
&overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 0 in 0
@cut to zone 1

&zoom on x y to % in 5
@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1 in 5

You can adjust the timing of the zoom and overlay according to how you want it.
