Overlay experts, please answer this question


#1

I’ve been reading a few stories where the author makes the character open and close their eyes. I probably make zero sense but I’m wondering how they do it. Like in Fine Line where Violet winked towards the camera. How do I do this. If it’s made with overlays what overlay do I upload and how do I use it?


#2

I think it is done by transition :confused: but I am not sure , lol, I am not an overly expert :joy: didn’t even used one until now


#3

What do you mean by transition?


#4

Transition fade in/out in 3 ?


#5

That’s for backgrounds.:joy:


#6

But if you put it like this🤔
Background
@transition
Same background
With same position of character
@transition
Lol😂i even myself don’t have idea what I am saying


#7

Lol I’ll try it out.


#8

:joy:okay , tell me if it works​:upside_down_face::joy: if it didn’t , hope you find out a way​:wink:soon


#9

Thank you:joy:


#10

Use two black overlays at top and the bottom and shift up/down


#11

I meant an actual eye on the characters face.


#12

Oh, sorry :joy: it’s mostl likely an overlay or maybe some changing outfit “face” :thinking: what I mean is when character finish an animation, change the outfit (even if it’s the same one) some animations are actually changing (some of them are really creepy!)

I haven’t read that story but isn’t there an action for that? flirt_wink_forward
That makes the character put a hand on her hip, then tilt her head a little and wink at the camera.

Sorry if that wasn’t what you were asking about.


#15

What do you mean by that?


#16

Try it yourself to see what I mean:
@CHARACTER is frustrated
@pause for 2.0
@CHARACTER changes into outfit

The face expression will change.


#17

It’s not working.


#18

I didn’t mean this animation in particular but nevermind.

I didn’t read this story yet so I don’t know what you mean exactly, but it might be the end of animation :thinking:

try this:
