Well, yes and no. Yes, because you won’t have to necessarily “code” anything. No, because it will still be written as code. Try it and see for yourself!

@maria.y

Thank you so much for your response. When I write something attempting to follow the format, I keep getting errors. Maybe I’m too old, lol. :slight_smile:

#295

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean by a restaurant script template. :sweat_smile:


#296

Hi, I’m beginning to write my own story using the Limelight design, and my characters only stay in thought bubbles when I preview the story. Kinda like characters in Choices. How do I get them to physically be in the backgrounds?

Thanks!


#299

Oh, I think you’re using Episode Spotlight. Here’s how you can change it back to cinematic:

set format cinematic


#300

Thanks so much, but it says it’s locked in spotlight. How do I “unlock” it?


#301

Because you chose to use Spotlight when creating your story, I’m not sure if you can change it back. You might have to create a new story.


#302

I don’t remember choosing spotlight, is that an option or did it happen because I selected a main character?


#303

I figured it out! Thanks!!


#304

Glad the problem has been solved. :slight_smile:


#305

Yes M.


#306

Episode already has built-in backgrounds with overlays. Here are a few:

INT. DUTCH CAFE OL - DAY

INT. DUTCH CAFE OL - NIGHT

EXT. OUTDOOR RESTAURANT OL - NIGHT
