One animation after the other causing character to pause

How do you get a character to do multiple (similar) actions directly after the other? Having an issue where my character just pauses instead.

@zoom on 96 283 to 319% in 0
&MC spot 1.101 120 9 in zone 1 at layer 0 AND MC faces right
&MC is react_scream_horror_up
@zoom on 108 304 to 804% in 2
&MC is react_scream_horror

I’d do it like this

&MC spot 1.101 120 9 in zone 1 at layer 0 AND MC faces right
@zoom on 96 283 to 319% in 0
&MC is react_scream_horror_up then MC is react_scream_horror
@zoom on 108 304 to 804% in 2

Thank you. That worked with just a small pause of 0.2 between the zoom and the first animation. :heart_on_fire:

Alternatively, if you want more control on the timings, you can use “walks to” instead of “is” for the first animation, since “is” is set to 1 second and “walks to” can be however long you like.

In the following example, it will play starts react_scream_horror_up animation for 0.9 of a second before playing the react_scream_horror animation for 1 second. Just adjust the last zoom to match the timings of your animations.

@zoom on 96 283 to 319% in 0
@MC spot 1.101 120 9 in zone 1 at layer 0 AND MC faces right
&MC walks to spot 1.101 120 9 in zone 1 in 0.9 AND MC starts react_scream_horror_up THEN MC is react_scream_horror
@zoom on 108 304 to 804% in 1.9
