There’s still an error lol

It’s showing an error.

Wait where did they say that?

I don’t understand the imitate function BUT that rotate overlay in previewer though???

Math/geometryis not my strong subject so the thought of no longer plugging in numbers or angles and HOPING its perfecy is :two_hearts::two_hearts::two_hearts:


I believe they said that we should see the animations at the end of the year.

Sooo, most likely, it’ll be sometime this month–even if it’s not the monthly update. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:


So lets say you have both JOHN and ALISON in your story. If you want JOHN to look like ALISON in the story without actually changing JOHN’s name in your script, you’d use the “imitate” command.

For example:

@JOHN imitates ALISON

What this command does is visually show the readers ALISON’s appearance when they encounter JOHN in the story. So, although readers see ALISON, your script will still refer to the character as JOHN.

for eg if you have multiple characters but want to streamline the script by merging their appearances, the “imitate” command allows one character to visually represent another without changing the character’s name in the script.

Does that make it a bit clearer?


Can someone please give more information on this?


sorry end of year not 2024 in the post about the sitting animation update


Thanks!!! :blush:

i guess we are gonna wait for dara to explain the imitating function :sweat_smile:


Will clothing we favorite stay favorited now? Before it was announced nothing stayed favorited when I got in and out of outfit editor.

I still don’t understand how this works or what it’s for.

I don’t understand this part either. Is this something we can do now? Also, what is a donacode?

Donacode is the name for the coding language used in Episode. So like you have HTML and BBcode languages, you also have Donacode.
