I can help with anything. Animating overlays, loop backgrounds, yah.

Hi! I was wondering, I don’t understand how to do weather effects. What do I have to do to make it snow? :thinking:

Expected CHARACTER or SCENE change . FOUND “Kate listen_phone_excited loop”
Instead. Did you forget to CAPITALIZE the name or close the ( ) around the animation?

This is where the problem is, I’ve been stuck for three days please help me someone.

@KASSAY starts talk_phone_neutral_loop
@pause for 2

EXT. BOARDWALK ATLANTIC - OVERCAST
@cut to zone 2
@CHRIS stands screen right AND CHRIS faces center

@CHRIS starts talk_phone_surprised_loop

INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY
@cut to zone 2

you forgot the brackets :smiley:

KATE ( listen_phone_excited_loop )
My BFF is home!

oh wow, i feel so stupid thanks so much @ Farah_ DeSantis

do not feel like that - everybody sometimes do not see such things. :smiley:

You have a background like INT. PUTBACKGROUNDHERE - DAY
then you add with HEAVYSNOW or SNOW
It would look like this:
INT. PUTBACKGROUNDHERE - DAY with HEAVYSNOW

Thanks!

No problem :slight_smile:

I know this is probably stupid. but the whole script thing to me is new and i am really struggling. i am not exactly sure how to get two characters to do different actions at the same time??

@CHARACTER is animation_name AND CHARACTER2 is animation_name

And just a tip, to speed animations up, (like punching) you have to do like this: (INK animations)
&ANA starts punch_jab
&FRED starts punch_receive
@pause for #
The Time of the pause is how fast/slow the animation will happen

Hey! I have a question )
I want to divide different backgrounds in one moment. I need it for conversation between characters in one moment over the phone in different places. Do I need to upload a new background for this or maybe I can make it another way?

you mean like this pv1_back_INT__PHONECALL___DAY

Exactly :slightly_smiling_face: Or maybe diagonally.

Okay, I’m still pretty new to this so I’m still not sure on how to do a few things.
But my main question is (for my current story I am working on).
How do you make a large choice at a beginning that will affect the whole story?
For example, I want to start the story by asking the reader’s sexual preferences so the story is more personal to them, and then the characters would change gender depending on what they chose?
Like the in “The Baby Project”?
Thank you

sooo for that @Dara.Amarie has a template for that, here it is.
