NVL mode, showing images with transitions behind NVL text?

#1 Post by Galaxy » Sun May 04, 2014 4:32 am


I'm working on a project using NVL mode narration, and I've found I can display some NVL text, and change the images of the scene just by saying:
show [image name]

That works, it preserves the NVL text in tact. I can stick with just that, but I'm accustomed to using dissolves for emotional impact, and dissolves cause the NVL text to momentarily disappear while the image is transitioning in - then reappear once the transition is complete.

Is there a way to keep the NVL text constant even while the images behind are doing transitions?

add "window show" after your start label.
