FX can add quite a bit of delight for writers if used effectively. They can add mood to scenes or pair visuals to high-action moments. Don’t forget to turn your sound on!
FX do not need to be added to your Assets List, simply select “Sound Effect” or “Visual Effect” from the dropdown in Visual Editor, or select either the “SFX” or “VFX” buttons in Code Editor
Here are some quick & easy guidelines on what we’ve discovered works best around what types of FX to insert and when.
Place a Transition VFX immediately before a background change for a seamless change.
If you turn an ambient or theme SFX off, turn another ambient or theme SFX on immediately after.
Put FX after lines that describe actions.
Play Ambient or Theme SFX before intros:
(fx: sfx_basement_ambient -on) (location: BLACKOUT) (fx: vfx_candle_walkway_intro -queue)
