@BOY spot 0.848 219 89 AND BOY faces right

@YOU spot 0.866 126 83 AND YOU faces right

@BOY starts idle_book_open_neutral_loop

@YOU starts idle_armscrossed_awkward_loop

    BOY
Ok, you're obviously overexaggerating.
Now tell me why you're really here.

    YOU (idle_armscrossed_angry_loop)
And why would I lie?

@BOY is laugh_giggle
BOY (talk_agree_happy)
Because you girls are always trying to make yourself seem bigger than you actually are.

sound stop

@YOU is scream_angry

    YOU (talk_armscrossed_angry_loop)
Stop the car!!

So you’re playing music not a sound so in the place of the “sound stop” replace it with a “music stop” and you’ll be good.

#949

Ive tried but the music is still playing

#950

Wait the code is actually music off not music stop. I got a bit confused by the previous people on the thread lol.
So in the place of sound stop replace it with a “music off” and hopefully it should work.

Use command: create, shifts, scales and opacity remember to add zone to shift command, if you need more help PM me with your script :slight_smile:

#952

but what if you don’t want the finger snap, just the face expression?

#953

@Nillopiien,

No. If you want the face expression, you have to use finger snap. A lot of times, authors will zoom so that the character is out of view and then return to the character so that the reader does not see the animation, just the end reaction.

How can I show 2 zones at the same time

for example: in the background INT. DUMPY APARTMENT BEDROOM - DAY I want to show the entire bed but that’s 2 zones.

#956

And if you are letting the reader customize the name how would u make that chracter say something
would it be: you (NAME)
Hi my name is [NAME]

or: (NAME)
Hi my name is [NAME]

#957

You can’t show the both zones unless you zoom out the background completely which looks weird. You can use pan to zone command to show that your character is laying on the bed.

#958

what if you wanna remember a choice from a previous episode? what do I type?

#959

And in this case it would be

NAME
Hi, my name is [NAME]

#960

Did you used gains or named your choices?

#961

gains

#962

have a look here :slight_smile:

But if you still have problems let me know x

#963

thanks so much! if I use this in one episode, will it remember it in the next episode if I follow these steps?

#964

Yes :slight_smile:

#966

Thank you :relaxed:
