Hi,
I would like to ask about the loop backgroungs:
Can you ever change somehow the direction it moves?
(I mean that if you just write the loop it moves to the left)

Focus the zoom on the feet. Copy the coordinates to your script. Then move zoom up on the characters face copy the script but this time change the time
@zoom on x y to % in 4
Zoom will move up from toes to head in 4s

Hey! First, thank you so much for answering all of our ‘stupid’ questions, I’ve found the answer to a couple of questions already, so that’s really amazing.
I just have a quick question: how long would one episode normally be?

It depends if you have a lot of coding/ advanced directing really. I keep mine 1300-2000 lines. I would say episode should be around 7-10 min long. But we all have different preferences.
