Hello, I need a bit of help with my script. When fading in to my scene it fades into the wrong zoom even though I dont have that @zoom there it still fades into it. I have put the right @zoom there but it fades into the wrong zoom and then 2 seconds later fades into the right zooming. I hope that’s not confusing is there anyway to skip the first zooming?
Showing a script screenshot might be helpful if you’re still having troubles.
Hi! If you do a zoom reset or are spotting any of your characters it’s best to use an “&” instead of an “@”. This helps make the scene look smoother.
You have to put the zoom reset after your background. So:
I just tried that but the first scene is still there
Oh, do you mean you want all your characters already there when you preview it?
yeah its like it cuts to zone 1 first then cuts to zone 3 where i want it to be
So, you want it to start off in zone 3 with all you characters there?
yeah haha im sorry I made it so confusing
Oh, no it’s fine!
So, it would be:
INT. GARAGE - NIGHT
&cut to zone 3
&zoom on 874 374 to 298% in 0
&NONAME spot 0.893 244 213 in zone 3 AND NONAME faces left AND NONAME moves to layer 2 AND AMELIA spot 0.821 209 215 in zone 3 AND AMELIA is idle_terrified AND AMELIA faces left AND AMELIA moves to layer 3 AND OLIVER spot 0.920 42 200 in zone 3 AND OLIVER moves to layer 2 AND OLIVE idle_gun_angry_loop
@add Gun Pistol Black to OLIVER
@overlay SILHOUETTE ARM create
&overlay SILHOUETTE ARM opacity 1 in 0 AND SILHOUETTE ARM rotates 100 AND overlay SILHOUETTE ARM shifts to 216 344 in zone 3 AND overlay SILHOUETTE ARM scales to 1.216 2.16 AND overlay SILHOUETTE ARM moves to layer 6
@overlay KNIFE OPP create
&overlay KNIFE OPP opacity 1 in 0 AND overlay KNIFE OPP shifts to 183 305 in zone 3 AND overlay KNIFE OPP scales to 0.244 0.244 AND overlay KNIFE OPP moves to layer 5
When using and creating overlays it’s best to put “&” instead of “@” so the animations are combined and it looks smoother.
