Spot template help

Hi!

I’ve found a great spot template on instagram (episode.Mavis)

but, I want some people to run in it.

I want the characters (2)

enters in zone 1. and run_jog to zone 5, and the camara to follow them. But I can’t get it right.

Does someone wants to help me? I dont know if I can share the script here. So if you want to help I can send it in a PM

Thanks!!

Yeah, share the template you want to use and we can edit it.

Okay…

and I want to main characters

DEMITRI and ROBERTO run_jog in the scene from left to right.

where DEMITRI yells at Roberto; Come on Rob!

and run’s further (they need to catch a plane)

&pan to zone # in seconds
@CHARACTER walks to spot in seconds and CHARACTER does it while

Make sure the seconds match. So if you want them there in 5, both the pan and the time your character walks to spot would be 5

Thank you! Can I just add that at the begining of the coding?

It depends on what zone your characters on going to and when they enter since the template itself has different pans.

Hmm okay… I want them to start in zone 2 till zone 5.

Maybe Im thinking to difficult but can’t get it right :thinking:

They might walk there too fast for your liking no matter how long you set the seconds simply because of the zone distance.

I’ve tried this but this isn’t right…

It gives an error…

Can you post your script

this is how I have it now and this also doesn’t work.

You don’t need to cut to zone 5 at the top because if you look look at the template, those characters are in zone 1, so you would cut to zone 1.

Also your characters aren’t walking to their spots, you have them as entering and exiting the screens at default.
