Quick Error writing fix- spotting


#1

Hi, I am writing right now and one of my characters is standing in front of the other. Is there a way I can make this the other way around so that the character is standing behind the other one?


#2

Yes! Make sure to change the layers each character is in.

Hope this helps! :slightly_smiling_face:


#3

Thanks!


#4

No problem!


#5

I just tried it but my characters disappeared on the preview. Only one of my characters appeared, but its coded the same way.


#6

Can you paste the part where you want them to be in different layers so I can see what needs to be fixed?

INT. LAVISH ENTRY HALL2 -DAY
@AUNT CLARA spot 1.250 283 1 at layer 2 AND AUNT CLARA faces left
@ MRS CASTALDI spot 1.250 36 1 at layer 1 AND MRS CASTALDI faces right
@SHANE spot 1.286 120 1 at layer -1 AND SHANE faces right
@ MRS CASTALDI is talk_giggle
@AUNT CLARA is talk_happy
@ CARMEN enters from right to spot 1.250 217 20 at layer 0
This is what I have

OK see if this works

@AUNT CLARA spot 1.250 283 1 in zone 1 at layer 2
(or whatever zone you want her in) and just follow this format for Mrs. Castaldi

and for Carmen, you can try this

@CARMEN enters from right to (whatever spot you want her in)
&CARMEN spot 1.250 217 20 (in whatever zone you want her in)
&CARMEN moves to layer 0

Let me know if this works!

Thank you! Im gonna try it.


#10

It worked perfectly! Thank you so much! Do you know if I can start a scene in zone 2 or would I have to pan there?


#11

No problem! And yes. You can either pan or cut to zone 2
