Alright, do you see the button “Preview.” Make sure to have your background ready and some characters ready. :slight_smile:

If you are new to adding backgrounds, characters, etc. I’ll see if I can help you.

First, add your background by typing it out. Make sure to use capitals like this “INT. BACKGROUND.”

Check out this on Spot directing:

After that, place your characters using Spot Directing. If you click on Preview and look onto the side and see a button that says “Navigation”, click on it and find “Spot Directing.” But, first…place your character in a spot like a random number and then you’ll be able to move it around once you accessed Spot Directing. I recommend using this.


@CHARACTER spot 0.300 300 300

If you want your character to be in a specific zone and want it to be in that zone when the scene begins. Use this as a command…

@cut to zone #

@natashadavis I’d recommend watching Joseph Evans’ tutorials as a way to get started directing on Episode and I’d also recommend that you read the guides-it will be super helpful.

Also, I’m curious, are you writing in ink, limelight or classic?

I recommend listening to Jen, she is really good at this stuff. I will sound too confusing. :laughing:

Thank you! I will finish working on this in the morning. This coding is making my head spin.

I’m writing in Ink since it looked simple to do

No worries, hey. I was like you when starting this stuff. Like Jen said, you could read the forums itself or watch Joseph Evans’ tutorials.

Nice choice, INK is a great style to start. Don’t worry about starting today, you have tomorrow! :slight_smile:

@EllieThatWriter I have 3 different story ideas, I just have to make it through the 1st story before I start the 2nd one. I already have characters. The last one I had its super complex and probably make me use lots of overlays since it’s about witches and the supernatural

Alright. :+1: I get it, I created a story that was really complicated and I gave up on it. But, with enough practice. You’ll learn! :slight_smile:
