Transitioning quickly between backgrounds



So I’m trying to go through a very dramatic scene where a bunch of backgrounds flash really quickly but I can’t make them go fast enough. I want them to transition every .3 or .4 seconds


I’m not sure if there’s a better way to do this or not (there probably is), but what I do is just include something that makes no difference, but includes a unit of time. For example, a zoom.
If the background doesn’t have any zooms and is just completely zoomed out, simply put in the code:
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in [0.3 or 0.4 or however long you want it to be]
If the background is zoomed in, just use the same coordinates and insert the amount of time you want it to pause.
If you do this in between the scene changes instead of just pausing for a beat, you can add in the exact amount of time you want it to stay on that background for.
Hope this helped! :slight_smile: (Sorry if it’s a little confusing, if you need further clarification be sure to ask me.)


Thanks! How do I add the amount of time I want on a background?


Oh I did exactly like you said and it worked! Thanks so much :joy::grin:


No problem!! I’m happy to help :grin::wink:


I’m so sorry to bother you but can you help me again! (no promises that it is the last time though haha)
How do I get my characters to make an action but not say anything like i want

    NOVA (flirt_wink_atcamera)
    LULA (laugh_chuckle)

@NOVA is flirt_wink_atcamera
@LULA is laugh_chuckle


Thank you!!


Glad this got resolved! Closing :v:t2:
