From Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine
This special feature allows you to create a skippable set of image transitions, like an in-game movie. This may save you from creating a MPEG flux if you don't feel like it or if you find it too hard.
# In the usual init section, place all the images # you will need for transitions and alpha transitions. init: image hello = "myimage0.png" #change here the desired image name image world = "myimage1.png" #change here the desired image name image black = Solid((0, 0, 0, 255)) ## This here is the flash effect transition $ flash = Fade(.25, 0, .75, color="#fff") # I won't lecture you about how to create good "video" scenes. # This depends entirely on your inspiration. # It is best you kept one file for your in-game splashcreen (IGS) # This will be better for future editing. #The idea here is to create a 2 image IGS #with some short music and a little flash effect. # Let's create our IGS. label OP: $ mouse_visible = False #Turns off the mouse cursor #Pause for 2 seconds, not necessary, but it's good for narration transitions $ renpy.pause(2.0) #Play a tune $ renpy.music.play('theme.ogg') #This here is tricky: it applies the transition effect, #plus the renpy.pause #Your first image will appear with a flash effect #and pause for 1.5 seconds scene hello with flash with Pause(1.5) #You can also use the pre-defined alpha #transitions already defined in the Ren'py build. scene world with fade with Pause(1.5) #You can also use animation effects such as Pan, particles... #You might eventually create an entire #animation studio if you're patient enough. scene hello with Pan((0, 0), (800, 300), 1.5) with fade with Pause(2.0) #Don't forget to stop the music or it will loop endlessly. $ renpy.music.stop(fadeout=1.0) #And return the mouse or you'll feel lost :) $ mouse_visible = True #outta the OP! jump next_scene # You will end here if you click or press space label next_scene: #This little script here is necessary because of skipping, #the previous code might not have been read. python: if renpy.sound.is_playing(channel=7): renpy.music.stop() mouse_visible = True scene black "Hello world ('_')/~"
