Transitioning and fading out at the same time


#1

Hello! So, I’m working on a story in which there is a scene where I want to pan to a zone and fade out to black at the same time.
When I try to use the and command, I get an error. Is there any way to actually pan and fade at the same time?

@LynnIsWritin,

The @ symbol must be paired with the transition while the & can be with anything happening at the same time as the transition.

For example:

INT. SCENE 1 - DAY
CHARACTER
Talk and action
&pan to zone 2 in 3
@transition fade out black 3 #numbers not necessary but allow to pan and zoom at same rate.
INT. SCENE 2 - DAY
&CHARACTER stands screen center
@transition fade in black 2

Thank you! I’ve been struggling for a while with this.

Well you had to type:-1:
For example:-
INT. BLACK - DAY
CHARACTER
TALK AND ACTION

@pan to zone 3
@transition face out black 1

I hope that will work!
