@Chelle_shocked,

You will want to use spot directing. If you start and end with a different sized scale, the character will shrink or grow over time as they walk to the new spot.

@RudeInception’s spot walking guide should help you. Click here for the guide.

No, just walk spot walk her there.

Let’s say she’s:

@CHAR spot 1.280 155 5 in zone 2

Then just spot walk her:

@CHAR walks to spot 0.900 160 100 in zone 2 AND CHAR does it while walk_rear

She will gradually get smaller as she walks to the spot

If a character is walking from screen left to back left how do I do that? I mean, I wrote:

@AGATHA walks to back left in zone 3 AND AGATHA faces left AND AGATHA is walk_rear THEN AGATHA is rear AND AGATHA faces left

But when Agatha arrives at back left she does the animation idle instead of rear. And a few seconds later she does the animation rear. Do you know how to fix this so that the idle move disappears?

what is the difference between ink and limelight? and I have an issue I was getting ready to publish my first 3 episodes but as I was previewing it I noticed that 2 scenes out of the first and second episode disappeared as well as the whole 3rdd episode! what could have I done wrong? was it maybe because I started on mobile app or maybe I did something wrong script writing… any tips would be great I’m thinking of just starting from fresh if so would it be better to use mobile app or computer? thanks again sorry for all the ?s just freaking out!!!

Ink and LL are just different art styles. They also have different clothing and different animations. But it’s basically the same.

As for the disappearance of your content, I don’t know. Maybe you accidentally deleted it? If so you can see previous saves here:
