Zones + Needs explaining

Does anyone have a list of the zones/where when directing characters. I swear there was a post about it before but, I can’t find it anymore.

My code is all messed up from this :slightly_frowning_face:

Hey love! I’m not to sure what post you are talking about, but here some videos that could help with zones and directing! :blob_hearts:

Can you explain your issue a bit more? Or maybe post a screen shot of your script and tell us what’s wrong? :slight_smile:

label boy_custom_1

@SHAWN ORYAN enters left

@SHAWN ORYAN stands screen center and SHAWN ORYAN faces right and SHAWN ORYAN is idle

Is what I originally had, and then I took out the “enters” section and it seemed to work - beforehand it came up with an error around the “label boy_custom_1”, saying that the code was wrong. I thought maybe if I used the zones (as in the numbered positions) it would work.

Pretty sure it should be

@SHAWN ORYAN enters from left to screen left

Or something like that. I haven’t used these positions since a long time, I just use spot directing so I could be wrong.

Yeah, I did that the first time. The other character I have (main) I did this same code above and it worked but now it’s not :confused:

enters FROM left (you forgot the from)

As @/CherryPicked said, you got the command wrong. You need to state from where the character is entering and also to where they should go. So it should look like this:

@SHAWN ORYAN enters from left to screen center

With this command you won’t need the second one because he’ll already be facing the right way and be idle.
I hope this helps :slight_smile:
