Phone and Speech

How do you make the character PICK UP the phone?
How do you switch between episode cinematic and episode spotlight?
How do you use overlays?
How do you decide the zone?
Whenever I put the hug animation, both characters face the opposite sides. could anyone help with that?


there are multiple animations for calling on the phone/ picking up something
set format cinematic
@overlay OVERLAY shifts to [spot] in [zone]
@overlay OVERLAY scales to [scale] [scale] (you have to repeat it once)
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 1 in [seconds]
@overlay OVERLAY moves to [layer]
overlay guide
feel free to ask me anything if you want more detailed explanations :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Could you give examples of the phone pickup animations?

if you want them to actually pick up the phone, take_object_neutral

go to animations and search up phone and it will give you all of them

What style are you writing in?:blush:


I think there’s some animations that include grabbing. I’m not sure though

the zone you decide eather by cut ot by pan to zone

cut goes there instantly

pan goes there in time so you see camera moving from one zone to another

@cut to zone 2
@pan to zone 3
@pan to zone 1 in 10

Do you know how to change from Episode Cinematic to Episode Spotlight?

When you do any rear animation you need to add “AND CHARACTER faces left” or right… and you must face him to the oposit direction

so if he is rear and you wanr him to look to the left you have to face him with the command to the right

I don’t think you can if you already picked the style. You have to make a new story or leave it as it is I’m pretty sure
