Raven's Coding Shop! [OPEN]

Hey guys! I have been coding for quite a while now and would love to help those new coders who are still trying to navigate their way around writing a story!

(As well as those more experienced writers who just have no clue what they are doing! Don’t worry, we have all been there :laughing:)

Things I am more advanced at:
-Spot direction
-Overlay placement
-Grammar/Editing (Very strong at this!)

1. Please do not ask me to code entire scenes for you. I am here to help and make your life easier, but not to do everything for you! Please respect the fact that I do not feel like spending my time writing your stories for you x
2. If I provide you with a script template, please keep the ‘readerMessage’ that is giving me credit for the template. I put a lot of effort into the coding and want to be recognised.
3. Just be kind :blush: I am not this extremely advanced Episode coder who knows everything so if you ask something of me that I can’t do or don’t know, please be kind and don’t get upset x

Feel free to comment down below any issues you may have and I will do my absolute best to help :blush:

Hi I have a question about zooming.
Lets say I wanted to open a scene where I panned across the background and then zoomed into the MC drinking a glass of champagne? I was trying to use the &character zoom at … THEN drinks …

Any advice or tips would be so so appreciated.

Do you want the character to be drinking while you zoom or after you have finished zooming?

Zoom into her and then she takes a drink.

@pause for 2

@pan to zone 3 in 3

@zoom on FEMALE1 to 200% in 2

Sorry, I’m very new to the coding process, when I want to add dialogue afterwards would I just place it below?

The script helps! Thank you!
