Try previewing it on the app.

#1387

ok thanks now I know I’m ink lol. just did and it shows a black screen for the scenes I’m missing with dialogue here and there but not the whole scene. I think it maybe has something to do with me originally making it on app and then editing on here so instead of publishing I’m gonna delete and start over think that will be easier than trying to figure out what I did :cry::disappointed_relieved:

#1388

I’m sorry you’re having a hard time… hopefully you work it out.

#1389

I hope it’s not too late but I’m really stuck on my directing and won’t be able to sleep otherwise.

I want to have an overlay hit a character in the face the format of my script is;

@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in zone x in S AND CHARACTER is slap_face_receive THEN remove overlay OVERLAY THEN CHARACTER is run_fall

I didn’t want to bore anyone with my real script so x y , character and overlay are all replaced with actual valid commands.

The problem is that with this format is that the overlay lingers even after the character has been hit.
I wanted it to hit him and then have him react and the overlay removed by then. However the slap_face_receive takes too long so I have to have the overlay shift and the slap_face_receive at the same time.
@_overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in zone x in S AND CHARACTER is slap_face_receive THEN remove overlay OVERLAY THEN CHARACTER is run_fall

(**So I used the AND function to have it happen at the same time.) **

The problem with that is that I need to have the slap_face_receive and the remove overlay happen at the same time. But when I use the AND for all three of these commands;

@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in zone x in S AND CHARACTER is slap_face_receive AND remove overlay OVERLAY AND CHARACTER is run_fall

the overlay disappears.

I’d appreciate some help :blush:
Hope that wasn’t hard to understand :sweat_smile:

Try:
@overlay shifts to X Y in zone #
&CHAR is slap_recive
@remove overlay
I have something similar in my story and it works for me but it depends what are you trying to do :thinking:

Let me know x

#1393

When I do this it just lingers over the character’s face for too long instead of deleting straight away

#1394

How do I change the scale and place of a overlay BEFORE the fade in? With my script you will first see everything and then the fade in and the stuff in the right places.

Can someone tell me how to do flashes?

And make letter shaking ?

#1397

Hey I’m having the same problem I want to take a screenshot of one of my characters but because its on computer and it only shows the preview on the side i cant take a screenshot of just the character. Help. Also do you know how to change my username? :roll_eyes: :blush:

#1398

Flashes are made using transitions. Here’s an example I made not too long ago:


To animate text you use the text effect: animation: shuffle-sideways:

| animation:shuffle-sideways |Hey! This text is moving!

#1399

Preview your story on the app and you can take closer screenshots there.


You can’t change your username

You just save them on your device and upload them like a regular image
