This is how to pan the camera on a scence. Now the panning depends on how many zones there are. Some backgrounds have 3 and some of 4.

You can have a charcter enter the scence and pan, so it can seem like the person is looking around at the scenary, or whatever you want.  You can have your scence pan forward to the end and back again or you can have it start from the end to the begining.

I will be using the background  spanish townsquare as an example, you can use whatever background you want.

Example 1:

EXT. SPANISH TOWNSQUARE 4 - DAY

@pan to zone 4

@pause for a beat

@pan to zone 1

@pan to zone 2

@pan to zone 3

@pan to zone 4

@pause for a beat

@pan to zone 3

@pan to zone 2

@pan to zone 1

If you want the camera to pan/ follow your character:
here is one easy way to do it, 
*You can put whatever zone you want, mine is just an example

@follow  CHARACTER to screen center in zone 1

@cut  to zone 4
You are going to want to put a farther zone than the first one.

@follow CHARACTER to back far left in zone 2
