Zoom coding (?) help!

hi again !!

i was wondering if anyone could explain the zoom thing? like what the number 50 and 100 are in that script, i tried looking @ tutorials on how to zoom or cut and stuff but they seem to no avail since some are a tad old very much appreciated!

The basic zoom code is
@zoom on # # to % in t

The two #’s represent the spot that you wish to zoom on you can use the app or the portal for this.
The % is means how much you zoom in.
These two values the #’s and the % are represented by the zoom and focus buttons.
The t represents how much time to preform the given zoom.
Hope that helps!


can you zoom on signs or objects too

You can zoom on anywhere you want in the zone you are in. You have to go to the portal/app to see what “spot” (the numbers) the sign you are planning to zoom on is in.

You can’t zoom on overlays or characters in the sense that you can’t replace a character/overlay name in place of the “spot”(set of two numbers).

what is the portal app?

The portal is the writers portal where you write your stories - use the preview feature.
The app I’m referring to the the episode app.

also can you show background you are using @JAY_writes11 to zoom on. So it will be easy to put in zoom

ok thanks

You can just change the way your character is facing.
@CHAR moves to spot # # # in zone # in t AND CHAR does it while run_neutral_loop_rear AND CHAR faces right/left
By changing the direction a character is facing and then placing them in a “spot” behind where they are standing will give the illusion of running backwards.
Hope that makes sense :woman_shrugging:

thanks it worked

Try cutting to each zone and then previewing it on the portal or the app to see which zone the name is in.
Use the command @cut to zone 3 for example.
