Quick help with directing please!


#1

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!


#2

@follow CHARACTER to zone x


#3

Thank you! I’m gonna try that.


#4

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


#5

Are you meaning

&CHARACTER walks to screen center in zone 3 in 6

@pan to zone 3 in 6


#6

Or do you want a moving background ?

Like an OL background ?


#7

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?


#8

&CHARACTER walks to screen left in zone 3 in 6


#9

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


#10

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


#11


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


#12

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


#13

Really? I’d really appreciate it!


#14

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


#15

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


#16

Okay, awesome! Will start on it now!
