Hi...I'm new here, but....
How do I get the cinematic at the beginning of the game, and then later on at diff spots.
I want to be able to start the game with a cinematic.
I know how to use the camera, but have no idea how to tell the game WHEN to use it.
Do I use a trigger? :ggani:

Check this multiplayer map I made!

Ok I'm probably gonna write a tutorial on cinematics but I'll give you the basics:

1. Delete the melee map trigger and make a trigger called "Cinema Start".

2. Create another trigger called whatever you want, here I'll refer to it as "Movie 1".

3. In Cinema Start use the "Map Initialization" event, and then use the action "Start Trigger" and have it start the trigger Movie 1

4. Now in the trigger Movie 1 use the action "Turn Cinematic Mode On" and it will start the cinematic mode

5. Now create 2 cameras anywhere on the map we'll call them Cam 1 and Cam 2

6. Use the trigger "Apply Camera Object" and select Cam 1 (over 0 seconds)

7. Then you might want to put a pause so you could use the "Wait" trigger

8. Finally use the "Apply Camera Object" trigger again, this time selecting Cam 2 and over how many seconds you want

9. For how many seconds that it moves you can use the "Wait" trigger for that many seconds

Hope that helped!
