I don't want to stop seeing you. I feel something between us, that I have never felt with anyone before.

That's a lot of messages.

after it transition the first time im trying to get to the next scene when they are standing up but instead it shows them lying down still then goes to the next scene

shes still lying down while hes talking but i have her doing admire


#2

That’s because after you transitioned, you had other code after it. Once you do a transition that leads to another scene, you can’t have anything after it except for the next scene otherwise the previous scene will show up again.

music off
@transition fade in red 1

The music off should happen before the transition and the fade in should happen in the next scene

The transition should come after you already coded them standing up sooo:

the selfie background didnt work


#6

Overlays don’t work on the INT. BLACK background, sorry babygirl


#7

False.
They DO work but you’ll need to zoom out to find it- I guarantee the selfie overlay is there, it’s just gigantic and offscreen. You’ll need to scale it down and shift it.


#8

I mean… you can try it.


#9

Zoom out- you’ll find the overlay. You need to scale it down and shift it =). Overlays for some reason don’t show up normally on certain backgrounds (I believe it has something to do with the size of the background). After you shift and scale the overlay you’ll need to add those coordinates to the background line.

That- that was amazing.

the transition is still doing it and she is still not doing admire part


#11

Spot the character first before the behavior:

@CECILIA3 spot 1.280 230 32 AND CECILIA3 starts admire_happy AND CECILIA3 faces left

I also replaced the is with start that way there’s no pause. I would do the same with CODY

@CODY spot 1.280 230 32 AND CODY starts deepbreath


And for the transition… I see you have a pause right after scripting the next scene:

Is that important to you? Because it might be causing the issue


#12

it said i needed something between music off and the new music


#13

Maybe do:

@pause for 0.1

So then you have something in between but it won’t be as long as a whole beat


#14

the selfie overlay isnt working keeps showing the background black i even zoom reset didnt work


#15

I still believe that you can’t use overlays with INT. BLACK bg
If you want to use a black background, I suggest uploading your own. That’s my advice


However @EliseC has stated that she knows how to make it work so perhaps she can further instruct you on what to do.


#16

then how do i use the selfie


#17

i use the black thinking thats what i needed to use the overlay


#19

so how would i do it to use the selfie


#20

I recommend that if you’re going to just use a phone for displaying messages then perhaps use INT. CELLPHONE - DAY background

But if you’re heart is set on the SELFIE overlay then I suggest uploading your own black bg


#21

If the animation doesn’t work, try putting the character’s spot first and how he/she faces and then the animation. I find that if you don’t do that then the animation won’t work. I mean, it could be just me, but who knows?
