Why is this happening?


#1

Hi everyone, please can someone help me? In this scene I am trying to cut to a zoomed in area of a scene but all I get is this and the guy is never where I want him to be, please help if you can :blush::blush::blush:


#2

Can you post your script?


#3

Is this enough of the script, or would you like to see the whole scene?

    JOHNNY (talk_neutral_loop)

#5

Think this is fine.

So that zoom is where you want it to be but not the guy?


#6

Yeah, he’s never where I want him to be, he should be at the same level as Kiara (blue haired girl) and I don’t know how to fix the issue?


#7

Is he billy or Johnny?


#8

Johnny


#9

You might just have to spot him lower on the screen so he’s even with the blue haired girl


#10

Okay, I’ll try that


#11

I fixed it thank you :slight_smile:


#12

No problem :+1:t6:


#13

@Ryan Please close this topic, I got what I needed :slight_smile:


#14

:sob: Ryan is gone, lol @Jeremy probably will.
