Since sounds can only play if they come right before a speech bubble, is there a way to play both a sound and music at the same time, where the sound doesn’t rely on the speech bubble? (This would be for sounds I want to loop along with the music anyway. Like, a music, along with background talking for atmosphere)
Guessing this might not work, but figured I would ask Thanks in advance!
Hmmm I just tested it with music (music name) and music (sound name) on the line underneath. Didn’t work… Let me see if I can try something else
I guess if I use a sound that’s kinda long, and maybe reference it often during the scene, it’ll be almost like it’s looping, and create the atmosphere I’m looking for
yup it does though. I have multiple sounds overlapping each other while a contant music being played…cause mine is to depict actual war situations
Do you just code it as:
music (music name)
and then later use a sound before dialogue? Then keep referencing a sound every few lines of dialogue?
I’m interested in reading your story so I can listen to it and hear how you have it work, if you’d like to share
Yes this can be done! And as far as what has worked for me, I didn’t have to put a sound always before dialogue. I usually like to add it wherever is relevant. Make sure for a sound to keep repeating use:
And for something to play once use:
Hope that helps
Sure. My story is Tribe of Malapinchi. I wrote it for the Thriller contest though. So its abit dark and scary in some ways.
Anyways just a bit of spoilers the sounds music that i think you may be looking for is the very first scene of the first episode. I think. And also in the middle of the second episode.
For the script wise i dont mind sharing but i’ll need to get back to u again as I dont have my laptop with me right now.
Thanks so much for your advice! Also that’s useful, because I didn’t know sounds could be added wherever. I thought they only worked if they came right before a dialogue line. I will test this out!
I appreciate it! I will check it out if possible-- I’m usually not too good with scary stuff
I appreciate your input, still!
No problem. I recently used sounds between actions for myself, with no dialogue, so I think you’ll have some luck there!
Oh wow!! Just put standalone sound into my script and it didn’t give me an error!! I never knew it could work like that. Then again, I’m new to using music and sound-- typically when I play through stories, I do it with sound off anyway haha
This is going to be so useful! Thanks again
Yay, I’m glad it worked for ya!
Though now it seems like I have an issue where my sounds are overlapping. Can you do sound off like with music to turn off one sound before you start another? Like, I have people talking inside, but the bird noises are also still playing haha
I think I figured it out After using “sound off” and then starting the next sound, that seemed to do it!
