Need Directing Help? This is the Thread for You!

Can anyone help with layer?

I can if you still need help. PM me though.

Does anyone know if I can add more than one over at once?

What do you mean?

Can we add two or more overlays on the same thing?

yes :slight_smile:

Ok, Thank you :grinning:

A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

Hey! I just added two scripts for clothes and hair… but they say the labels don’t exist… not sure how to fix this :frowning: I also want to find out how to make my characters use animations while talking?



Read this:

And for this:

It would be:

CHAR (animation)
Bla bla bla…

Of course you’d replace CHAR with your character’s name, animation with a talking animation that exists and Bla bla bla… with dialogue.


EMMA (talk_neutral)
I love cupcakes.

One more thing!
I’d recommend going over the Episode guides and checking out Joseph Evans’ tutorials on YouTube so you get a better grasp of directing and remember to practice! Also, feel free to ask questions on the Forums. Good luck ^^


I’m not sure where they are supposed to go! I’ve been looking at it and I’m not sure where it starts and finishes :woman_facepalming:t2: It keeps saying it doesn’t exist…

Ugh I’m so frustated haha

Thanks again!

Hey, I need help. I have a scene with three choices. If I pick choice 1 or 2, it will play the dialouge for that scene, but then it will begin the dialoge for choice three. What am I doing wrong??

can you post your script?

never mind, I fixed it. i had

} “choice” {

and then all the dialouge after would be played no matter what choice

thank you anyway, though

I need help with the point counter
Thank you

I need to add multiple overlays, but I can’t find anywhere how to do it. I tried to do INT. BLACK - NIGHT with THE OVERLAY AND OTHER OVERLAY, but it didn’t work. Can you please help me?

Is there a way to change some ones hair for one part only?

@YOU changes hair into Hair Style

That’s all ^^

You can change the hair style back by writing that command again in your script but replacing Hair Style with one that exists.
