is this the zoom your talking about? or like when the scene starts the zoom is out and when the character is talking it zooms in on the character.

the zoom out

@reset zoom?

are u talking about that? :point_up_2:

yes

ok, add @zoom reset to your script to go full screen.

I don’t want it to go full screen and there is no @zoom reset

I’m sorry I wasn’t clear earlier

ok, be a little more clear on how u want the scene to be, what do u want the scene to show first?

the zoom in where the characters are and then out?

the zoom in where the characters are

so you wan to have the zoom already on the start of the scene?

than you have to use & to all happening on the begining of the scene.

Also it is matter of what you are used to but making such long lines using AND is big source of mistakes you will not be able to find them if you make there one mystypo…
you can have the same efect using & and having shorter lines which are easier to check if mistake happens or change if needed

all with & will happen with @ under it

so if you want to have the zoom on the begining of the scene
