Writing a story


#1

Hey! I’ve had Episode for ages now and I’ve decided to start writing a story. However, I’m clearly new to this and haven’t got a clue! I just need the general tips like: How to bring a character on and off the screen, how to make them talk etc. Thanks a lot for the help! Much appreciated :smile:

To bring a character on screen:

@CHAR1 enters from left to screen left

Or:

&CHAR1 enters from left to screen left

To bring two characters on screen at the same time:

&CHAR1 enters from right to screen right AND CHAR2 enters from right to screen center

To have a character exit:

&CHARACTER exits right

I advise checking out the episode guides on the writers portal for more information.

Good luck with your story! PM me if you need any more help. :wink:

I was confused as well! Joseph Evans really helped me, you can find his tutorials on youtube if you’re still trying to understand this. He goes over it step by step!
