How do I create basic cutscenes?

Get help using Construct 2

Alright, I know I have another topic about the thing for animations for my sprites and whatnot, and so far I'm getting that down okay.

My question now is how to make basic cutscenes. No fancy text boxes via. XML (I will supply my OWN boxes, haha), just triggers for characters to do their animations within the scenes and camera panning stuff, as well as global events to have said triggers happen.

If anybody's willing to provide a capx or a screenshot, it'd be much appreciated!

Here's the set up I got so far.

Brown box is for the camera pan trigger event cutscenes, the lime box is for when the player triggers a text box to pop up, and the magenta box is for if I want the cutscene to begin with an NPC of some kind to run up or run by the player.

Check this example:

you need the MoveTo behavior to open the file:

For some reason, even after I install the plugin, I get the message saying that it's not found, it's missing the 'moveto.rainbow' file apparently...

Okay I was being an idiot and installing it into the plugins folder, not the behaviours folder. Thanks much!

Alright so after trying out the plugin and getting the scene set up, I find that the camera will attempt to scroll to the designated coordinates, but it keeps trying to jerk back to the player character. Any way to fix that?

Here's the layout I got at the moment. I probably am missing something here...
