  2. You bet!


    You want to go to www.xtranormal.com and sign up.

    Click Make Movies. Pick a setup with 1 or 2 actors.

    Type stuff into the "Write The Script" window(s).

    Use the + buttons to make more script windows.

    Drag the icons over from "Direct The Action" into your script. Choose details from the auto pop up window.

    Use save, preview, publish buttons in bottom right.

    Easy. Play with it. You'll get it. Its free if you just use the default sets and actors. I haven't even used it much yet.

    My second movie didn't go as well. Proxy errors and even published the first time with no dialog. Error windows you just try again later to save/publish. The other one took a bit more... creativity to get past, but it was just a fluke. Even after publishing, you can use the Remix button on the site to do it again.

    Have fun! Let me know if I can help. I've only done this for a couple of hours and look what I did ;)

  3. Forgot: Use extra punctuation to get the timing where you want it. Comas and periods work well in batches of 3 (... or ,,,).

    Also, if you are setting up camera views manually by dragging them into your script, turn off the Magicam/Auto camera angels button in the bottom left.
