When you open the app to preview your story, you’ll want to click on Red and then click on Black.
Blue is used to toggle between Focus and Zoom.
- In order to use Zoom you drag your fingers across the screen. This makes the screen zoomed in.
- In order to use Focus you drag your finger across the screen. This shifts around the screen while zoomed in.
The Green resets the zoom to its default percentage.
The Yellow gives you the command you need to add to your script.
In general the command is:
@zoom on X Y to % in T
X = X axis (left to right)
Y = Y axis (up and down)
% = percentage of zoom (default percentage is 100%)
T = time it takes the screen to zoom (0.1 – infinite)
X and Y are controlled by Focus
% is controlled by Zoom
EXTRA TIP: To open up a scene that is already focused and zoomed in, add a 0 in place of the time.
(@zoom on X Y to % in 0).
