Transition help (newbie)!

#1

Hey everyone! Sorry again, I usually just search up my answers as I’m a new writer. I usually see everyone starting off with splashes in their episode and it stays for a few seconds before transitioning. I did it, but I don’t know how to make it stay a few seconds longer before transitioning. :frowning:

before you write
@transition fade out

you can write
@pause for 5 (that means 5 seconds)


#3

Birthday girl is right :sunglasses::candy::cake::green_heart:

Code for it:
@pause for T

And you would replace that T with a number, depending on how many seconds you want the background to stay for before you move onto the next background (T can be 5 like @RainbowCat said or another number like 3, 6, and so forth.)

Good luck!

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since this is a coding question. If you have questions about anything, feel free to PM me and make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics. :wink:
