Transition techniques?

I’m trying to make a transition into a scene. But the characters pop into place afterwards. Is there a way to make the transition much smoother without making it so abrupt?

Here’s my recommendation-- format it something like this:

@transition fade out black

INT. BLACK - DAY (or whatever new scene background)

@CHARACTER spot [placement]
(repeat for all characters and overlays)

@transition fade in black

Should be a lot smoother by fitting in all the stuff that changes between the two transition out and in commands! :slight_smile:
