My characters are invisible and my coding isn't right

Hi, below is my coding for one part of my episode but it’s not working out correctly!
After the music has turned off, I want it to fade into the bedroom. That bit is working correctly, however when it shows the bedroom and it pans to zone 2, the characters aren’t there!

What I want to happen is that it fades into the bedroom and then pans to zone 2 where the characters are already sat down in their positions.
Please can someone tell me the correct coding for this
thnx

Ok, so for our project we need to do presentation on...

You didn’t place your characters in the scene.

Yeah, exactly what @Dara.Amarie said. You need to place the characters after the scene change. I recommend you do something like this:

@MIA exits right
@DARIUS is deepbreath
@DARIUS exits right
music off

INT. JUVIE WELLES BEDROOM - DAY
&MIA spot 0.500 183 335 in zone 2 AND MIA faces left
&MIA is idle_sit_anklescrossed_neutral_loop

&DARIUS spot 0.520 85 338 in zone 2 AND DARIUS faces right
&DARIUS is idle_sit_anklescrossed_neutral_loop

@transition fade in black 3
@pan to zone 2 in s

I think that’ll work just fine for ya :relaxed:

You spotted them off screen. Be sure to use the directing helper if you are unsure about where your characters are spotted.

OMG thank you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
