Urgent help needed....... i can't go further, need someone who knows coding real good


#1

there is something not ok with my script I take a video but I can’t post it here.
Anneke & Niels need to go through the zones to zone 1

Sabine & Jessica need to arrive at the parking spot just a little later to see them go away.
They want to go after them I did give in the same spots but they arrive at a different spot so I thought ok let them say something like lets observer them from here.
But while Anneke & Niels are walking Jessica and Sabine are already starting to talk and that is not how it is supposed to be. May I send you the little video and the script if you give me your e-mail.
I don’t understand it, you can change the script.
So if you have e-mail please pm me and i send the script and the little video.

please

thanks


#2

Could you take a screen of the script?


#3

You have to see it that’s why i have the video with it but i can’t send a video here, so i want if someone helps me an e-mail and then i send the script with the video it is much easier like that.

thanks

Hi.
If you post that scene of your script I can reconstruct it in my own Story Editor and help you that way.

Ok. I’ll see what I can find out.

You’re missing a pause at the end of the first scene. As it is now it skips over following ANNEKE and NIELS down the screen and goes right into the next scene.

You can either add a @pause for 7
or change the last & for NIELS to a @ to add a natural pause for the lenght of the walk.

&follow ANNEKE to upscreen left in zone 1 in 5
@follow NIELS to screen left in zone 1 in 7

But then ANNEKE will walk outside the frame, because it’s focusing on NIELS.

The get the effect I think you want - them walking in the frame together I’d recomend making a seperate pan to zone 1 before they start walking, and have NIELS walking a second slower.

&pan to zone 1 in 5
&ANNEKE walks to upscreen left in zone 1 in 5
&NIELS walks to screen left in zone 1 in 6
@pause for 5

or

&pan to zone 1 in 5
&ANNEKE walks to upscreen left in zone 1 in 5
@NIELS walks to screen left in zone 1 in 6

For the second scene, the same issue arrise. If you add a @pause for 5 after they walk, the code will work as it is now.

&follow SABINE to screen center in zone 1
&follow JESSICA to screen right in zone 1
@pause for 5

Also, minor grammar error - it’s “did you see that?”

Hope this solves your problem.

Oh that is so nice of you but I get errors look:

xxx


#12

You’re getting errors because you haven’t deleted the comments that HappyDaisy made for you - like at line 697, you have to delete the “<-- add this” part :))
Also, at line 702 you haven’t picked a scene to cut to, so that explains the error appearing there. Hope it helps


#13

no she hase compleatly made the scene so it would work i did have to take it like this.


#14

Oh no i see it, i did it but it gives errors also


#15

If you want your characters to just walk to another spot or zone, just add “@CHARACTER walks to zone # in #” - basically you’ll just have to delete the ‘follow’.
And again, at line 701 you need to put in a number of which zone you want to cut to :))


#16

I think i have solved it thanks xxx


#17

Exactly! Glad you figured it out :smiley:


#18

No, Miss_Julie is right, you have to remove my instruction notes (the <— add this et parts)
I just added them so that you’d get an understanding of why it wasn’t working for you.

Basicially your problems were caused by that you were using the & command but without adding the proper pauses that needs to go with it.
What the & command does is allowing you to add one command upon another for things to happen simultaneously, but the reader of the code will not stop at it for it to pålay out like ot does with @, only register it and then move on. That’s why you need the pause - to give the reader time to let the events play out on scene. No added pauses means no stop in the code.
