You’ll sometimes need to move your characters around the scene, whether that be having them face a different direction or walk to a different spot.
Facing A Certain Direction Syntax:
@CHARACTER faces SIDE
@ANGIE faces right
@YOU faces left
Walking to A New Position Syntax:
@CHARACTER walks to POSITION
@ANGIE walks to screen left
@YOU walks to back far right
You can also have a character walk off screen and into a different zone. This allows you to pan over to a character a reader may not have seen yet, without forcing them to walk on screen or pop into existence.
Walking to A Different Zone Syntax:
@CHARACTER walks to POSITION in zone Z
@YOU walks to screen left in zone 2
@HAYES walks to back left in zone 2
And finally, you can have a character walk through/across the different zones while the camera follows them.
Following A Walking Character Syntax:
@follow CHARACTER to POSITION in zone Z
@follow YOU to screen right in zone 3
Building on the prior command, you can also have two characters be followed by the camera while walking together.
Following 2 Walking Characters Syntax:
@follow CHARACTER to POSITION in zone Z AND CHARACTER2 walks to POSITION in zone Z
@follow YOU to screen right in zone 3 AND HAYES walks to upscreen left in zone 3
