The script breakdown automatically creates Characters for your production; however, it only pulls in Characters with speaking lines. This article explains how to add Principal and Background Characters to a Scene.
Adding Characters from the Scene Index
In order to add Characters to a Scene from the Scene Index, they must already exist in the Character Index.
Add Characters to multiple Scenes
- Click Edit All on the right-hand side of the page to open all the fields for editing.
- Click Add/Remove in the Principals column in line with your chosen Scene.
- In the Add & Remove Principals form, select the Character(s) to add from the dropdown menu.
- Click Save.
- Repeat steps 2-4 for additional Scenes and click Save when done.
Add Characters to a single Scene
- Click the Inline Ellipsis for the Scene you want to edit.
- Select Edit in the Inline Options menu.
- Click Add/Remove in the Principals column to add Principals.
- In the Add & Remove Principals form, select the Character(s) you want to add from the dropdown menu.
- Click Save.
- Click Save in line with the Scene.
Adding Characters from a Scene View
Add Existing Principal Characters
- Click Add on the Principals card to add Principal Characters.
- Select Add Existing to add existing Characters to the Scene.
- In the Add Principals form, select the Principal Characters you want to add from the dropdown menu.
- Click Save.
Add Existing Background Characters
- Click Add on the Background card to add Background Characters.
- Select Add Existing to add existing Background Characters to the Scene.
- Use the Episode Selector on the Add Existing Background form to search for Background from other episodes.
- Click (+) inline with the Background Characters you want to add.
- Click Done.
Create Principal or Background Characters
- Click Add on either the Principals card or the Background card.
- Select Create New to create and add a new Character to the Scene.
- Select Principal or Background from the dropdown in the Create Character form. Enter the Character Name (other fields can be added any time).
