Serenity's Directing Help (OPEN)


#1

Do you want help with directing but most ways to do it will take forever? Post it here! I’m open 24/7 to helping Authors who are in need of help with coding!


#2

How can I put the customized reader’s name in dialogue?


#3

[FIRST NAME] (action)
Dialouge

Or to put it in text

NARRATOR
Hi [FIRST NAME]


#4

I need help moving a character around a screen in limelight. Not like walking. But for an example, I’ve seen in super hero stories where the author made a character jump up in the air and fly.


#5

[FIRSTNAME] action
Dialouge

Or making a character use their name

CHARACTER (action)
Hey [FIRSTNAME]

Or @FIRSTNAME


#6

@CHARACTER is (jump_action)
&CHARACTER spot 0.000 000 00 AND CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER is (flying action)
&CHARACTER spot 0.000 000 00 AND CHARACTET faces right AND CHARACTER is (flying_action)

You move it as far as you want, and when you add a new spot make sure that the character is going further and into the sky.

If you are writing on computer use the preview, and click directing help, then spot directing to help move the character to the next places.


#7

thanks. Also how to you slide a character around a scene? I’ve seen stories where the characters would move straight down the screen. without walking so how do you do that?


#8

You walk them to a certain place and make them do the animation you want, for example:

@CHARACTER walks to screen center in 3 AND CHARACTER is idle
