yes, I think I was clicking too fast cause theres a pan before that scene and it was panning to black in the new one

oh ok

Hey do you know how top authors make they’re animating look so smooth? My stories look kind of choppy.

Tips and tricks could help me get this down.

Also how would you put overlays in characters hands? Can I move overlays in the previewer?

Practice an patience :smiley: if you tell me with what you’ve problems exactly I will give you some tips :slight_smile:

You can’t really put overlays in characters hands (overlay will be behind or in front of character) unless you’ll use limb overlay but still you could not use any movements then. Check the thread about the Props HERE maybe you’ll find something that you need :slight_smile:

and yes, you can move overlays in the preview

Click on:

Directing Helper

Overlay Helper

On the left side you’ll have:

Switch Tool:

Move - moving overlay around the screen

Scale - making overlay smaller or bigger

Change Overlay - if you’re using more than one overlay

what does this warning mean?
“too many values to unpack” for this line?
&VAMP walks to 1.019 210 116 in zone 2 in .3 AND VAMP does it while rear
&pan to zone 2 in .3
@pause for .3

How do I make characters customizable?

Here’s the link:

My overlays are not working @YOU also is not in front of the bar table but is behind where the bartender is meant to be. Please help





INT. BAR - DAY with NEW BAR TABLE to 2.782 -102 -3 in zone 1 at layer 2
&OLD MAN position here AND OLD MAN moves to layer -1
&YOU stands offscreen left AND YOU moves to layer 4

then she enters.

If it’s still not working I’m afraid you need to use spot directing (a lot of people have problems with this bar scene lately and layers)

ty. overlays?

for characters (sorry I wasn’t clear enough)

If this won’t work. Place your character offscreen and use walk to spot command

@CHARACTER spot % X Y AND CHARACTER moves to layer #
@CHARACTER walks to spot % X Y in S

whats this for?

for character entering scene

but it already worked?
