Placing characters into a scene

So I want to have a scene where characters already show up. This is the coding I used below. But when I preview the scene, there’s a weird delay and then all my characters pop on. Can anybody see any errors I may have made that might be causing this? Thank you for any help.

@pan to zone 2
@speechbubble is 156 200 to 100% with tail_top_right
@EXTRA 5 stands back far left AND EXTRA 5 faces left
@EXTRA 5 starts read_phone_neutral_loop
@EXTRA 6 stands back left AND EXTRA 6 faces right
@EXTRA 6 starts dance_groove_happy_loop
@EXTRA 3 stands back right
@EXTRA 3 starts dance_wavehands_happy_loop
@EXTRA 4 stands back far right
@EXTRA 4 starts dance_shake_happy_loop
@TRENT spot 0.975 111 159 AND TRENT faces right
@add Cup Plastic Blue to TRENT
@TRENT starts talk_handraised_happy_loop
@ZANE spot 1.038 235 140 AND ZANE faces left
@add Cup Plastic Blue to ZANE
ZANE (sip_cup_neutral_loop)
Why are there so many dudes here?

Use & instead of @ and place your characters before @pan to zone

No problem! :relaxed:

Or you can write all of them in the one line, just add ‘AND’ between any character.
