The Code:

INT. FASHION GALA - NIGHT

&zoom reset

&cut to zone 2

&speechbubble is 165 190 to 100%

&JEM spot -1.550 176 1357 in zone 2 at layer 1 AND JEM faces right AND JEM is idle

NARR (JEM)
Hanging out at a gala like a vampire.

Notes:

Yes, the scale (first number) is indeed negative. I talk more about what the three numbers mean here when I helped someone in addition to the link I provided above. Click HERE :wilted_flower:

What the code above translates into, visually:

Feel free to use this code or use the directing helper, and then from there, the spot helper to drag your character around (toggle between scale and Move) and feel free to change the direction of the character or add more people that are hanging upside down like vampires ^^

Thank you for checking this out :vampire: :v:

Yep, thank you for linking. There are videos on directing stuff out there which people can search for on YouTube, there are threads on it and there are the episode guides. Choose which way you wanna learn and go for it. Nice to have it available on other platforms like YouTube for visual and audio learners ^^ All of these resources are helpful, :sunglasses: Episode EllyYT and Joseph Evans as well as MdSava and Dara Amarie even have videos that people can check out, good luck to everyone and if you have more questions, you can ask here: JemU776's Help Thread or PM me ^^
