Quick help with directing please!

Hi! I have a background with 3 zones, how would I be able to pan from zone 1 to zone 3 while having the characters walk through it? It’s not a loop background, but I kinda want it to look like that while moving smoothly. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’d really appreciate it!

@follow CHARACTER to zone x

I tried it but the background isn’t moving. Should I add @pan to zone 3?

Are you meaning

&CHARACTER walks to screen center in zone 3 in 6

@pan to zone 3 in 6

Or do you want a moving background ?

Like an OL background ?

I just tried that and it worked! Thanks so much! Do you know how I’d be able to have them walk a little farther back by spotting it?

&CHARACTER walks to screen left in zone 3 in 6

I got it to work I’m just hoping I can spot it now so that the characters can walk along the sidewalk.

Or format the spot directing as normal, and simply retain the time!


Like I want the characters to walk across the sidewalk and have it pan through.

Oh, I could make you a script template for that if you want.

Really? I’d really appreciate it!

Of course! What style do you want it in, and what are the character’s script names so you can just copy and paste?

Its in classic style and their names are aunt clara and carmen! thanks so much!

Okay, awesome! Will start on it now!
