Is there a way where you can narrate without it pausing the scene or that’s just how it is?
do you want the scene to be panning/zooming at the same time?
You can always make overlays with the text and code it to go away whenever you want to
just use “&” for zooming/panning and the narration will not pause
how do you do that?
You wanna know how to direct a scene in which the narrations and the zooming is happening at same time?
You upload a png image with your text, and code how many second you want for it to show
Use &. Example:
&zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 7
Welcome to this manor.
&pan to zone 3 in 2
Welcome to this house.
You can even use then/THEN to combine commands.
&pan to zone 3 in 5 then pan to zone 1 in 5
The sea, a pretty place.
Bla bla bla…
So while the NARR/NARRATOR speaks, the scene pans to the third zone in 5 seconds and then to the first zone in 5 seconds. This whole line happens while whatever is written below it also happens at the same time (if you have dialogue, it will show as the pan is happening)
Using then and & is a good way for commands to happen after one another while other things are happening. It’s good for having background characters do a bunch of animations while the MC talks, for examples.
Making your zooms and pans fancy:
Hope this helps, happy holidays
you’re the goat… thank you!!
