Pan while doing an action! help!

hey guys!

Im struggling with the coding for a particular scene.

i want to have the camera start to pan to the next zone but half way through i want my character to wave and shout “wait!” then have the camera pan back to the first zone.

is it possible to have the camera pan to a spot instead of a zone?

because otherwise my character would go out of view and i don’t want that to happen.

sorry if this is really confusing!!!

Hey! I don’t think that you can pan to a spot but you can maybe do it like this:
@pan to zone # in 5 (so that you don’t pan fast)
CHARACTER (wave_extreme)
@pan to zone # (where yur character is standing)

thank you! i will try it now

You’re welcome, please let me know if it worked!

You can’t write
@pan to zone 2 WHILE…
Maybe you can do this like that:
@ JASMINE is think
@pan to zone 2 in 5 AND JASMINE is wave_extreme

&pan to zone 2 in 3

@pause for a beat

@CHARACTER is wave_extreme

&pause for S THEN CHAR starts ANIMATION
@pan to zone # in S
@pan to zone 1 in S


  • S is the number of seconds
  • CHAR is your character
  • ANIMATION is the animation
  • “#” is the zone.

The first S should be half of the other two, if you want it to start half way through.


&pause for 2 THEN JASMINE starts wave_extreme
@pan to zone 2 in 4
@pan to zone 1 in 4

thanks for this! it nearly worked but i just couldn’t get it quite how i imagined :pensive:so instead i think i will have my character run into the next zone for ease :joy:

Yup, unfortunately, panning back and forth isn’t aesthetically pleasing.

You can also try cutting.

&pan to zone 2 in 3 THEN pan to zone 1 in 1
@pause for 2
CHAR (wave_extreme)

This might work if you still wanted to try :slight_smile:
