Sleeping in bed, waking and getting up


#1

I’m trying to get my character to lay in a bed.

I want her to be sleeping in bed, open her eyes, get up and start talking on the phone. I want to do all of this in the bed of zone 2 in the INT. DUMPY APARTMENT BEDROOM - DAY background. Help?


#2

Try
@CHARACTER spot X Y S in zone 2 and CHARACTER starts lay_asleep_loop
For standing up:
@CHARACTER stands screen center and CHARACTER is stand_up
@CHARACTER is talk_phone_happy_loop


#3

It didn’t work unfortunately.

You need to use layers


#11

I did. But once I want my character to do an animations she disappears

04%20PM


#12

This animation not really fits to this type of background


#13

Oh so it’s not birds view?


#14

It’s like those scenes when the character are about to get it on.


#15

Yeah… it won’t work I mean you could move the character closer (so we can see her face) but it would look weird in my opinion. Can you not use some yawn exhausted or yawn animation instead?
