Okay, I'm Trying To Get The Paddles To Loop

Trying to play with the opacity but when one moves, the other isn’t. So, how do I fix it?

From what I understand, you want the left and right paddles to move at the same time. Sorry if I’m wrong, but I believe that you just need to use & instead of @ in certain places and remove some of the pauses.

I’ll check to see if it works.

Got it to work, thanks a lot @TristanArciera :wink:

Hello :slightly_smiling_face:
I can’t really tell how it’s supposed to look from just looking at the coding, like is it supposed to shift place and/or does it just appear on and off?

The reason I say this is because paddle right is at a different shifts and scales than how it started when you coded it to be animated. But I’m also not sure then why shifts and scales codes are repeating since it’s just repeating the same shift and scales throughout and therefore it won’t move and it’s also not timed so I assume it’s not meant to move. Lol :woman_shrugging:t3:

As for the opacity part. When paddle left fades, you don’t turn the opacity back on for it at any point. While paddle right is stuck on opacity 1 because you also don’t change that. So it’ll just be stuck with paddle right showing. So at the beginning it’ll work but after the first set of paddle left opacity 0 and then paddle right opacity 1, you’d need to turn the paddle left opacity back to 1and likewise turn paddle right opacity to 0

Also to let you know, if you didn’t, you can also use &overlay OVERLAYNAME moves to layer instead of @.
