how do I make a chararater walk in
@CHARACTER enters from
@CHARACTER walks to
so if I’m trying to make this character walk from the right side to the left side which one would you recommend?
You could use spot directing or use this command --> @CHARACTER enters from right to screen left
thank you so much
this is really helpful
ok so I got my character to come in from the right and onto the left screen but he just walked over all the way so now he’s in front of my other character is there a away to make walk to a specific spot?
Use spot directing.
I don’t know how to do that I’m new to this kinda thing
how do I get to a different side of the background?
Like to a different zone?
If the background has another zone you would do
@pan to zone #
@cut to zone #
do I use both of them?
yeah so if you want to go to another zone in the background you would use both
Just replace the # with the zone number
You can read more about spot direction here:
(the website has really wonderful guides)
For a cut or a pan, you can pick the one that suits your scene.
what would the left side of the background be? like what zone would it be?
left side is zone 1 (so starting from the left of the background, you’re in zone 1)
my bad I meant the right side?
When you start a scene, you don’t need to write:
@cut to zone 1
Because your scene will automatically take place in zone 1 unless you don’t allow it to (ex. by cutting to zone 2)
If you do cut to another zone like zone 2, and you want to go back to zone 1, you can either pan or cut to the zone, depending on what you wanna use.
The right side?
If you have a 3 zone background, the 3rd zone will be to the right.
Order (left to right) = zone 1, zone 2, zone 3
*some backgrounds will have only one zone, others two zones and other ones three zones. If you have a one zone background and cut to zone 2, the screen will be black. Episode even has some 4 zone backgrounds however you can only upload 1, 2 or 3 zone backgrounds.
so if I wanted to just start in zone 3 I would use cutting to zone 3 right?
