What do you need help with exactly? BTW I’m not that great at directing.

Messages keep appearing on one side when two characters are conversing through text.
I’ve tried arranging that manually but it still won’t change

you need to set the MC in the character section its down the bottom

Edit: this is what it looks like… change none to your main character

setmc

Please note that it will only work for the MC if you have two other characters texting it will not work it will only work with MC to everyone else as you can only set one character

You need to specify which side you want their texts to be on

Send me your script for the messaging scene. I can take a look and see what’s wrong at that point
