    I've spent hours solving the problem myself and searching for answers available.
    I ended up here anyway.

    Does anyone know how to give command to 1 unit while on cinematic mode?

    Oh and targeting commands aren't necessary. I just need the abilities as buttons.

    AFAIK cinematic mode just does a few things at once. I believe it opens letterbox mode, removes fog of war, disables user control, and maybe a few other things. You could do all of these things individually instead of turning on cinematic mode. This way you only do the things you want and leave the features you want.

    Further research would be required to figuring out exactly what cinematic mode does, but I bet someone would know.

    Did you try what Veritas117 suggested? Post your map, or the triggers so we can see where you are at now.

    You can use arrow keys during cinematic mode, not sure about other keybinds though.

    Cinematic mode does what it says. Users should not be in control during cinematic mode otherwise it would be a terrible cinematic mode and not do as its name suggests. Cinematics are meant to be sort of in game cutscenes where the user sits back and watches, not where the user plays.

    Do you want the buttons to appear inside the UI?

    If so, don't use cinematic mode and import some black UI and give everyone Aloc.

    If not, use moving trackables.

    I haven't tried it but just out of curiosity, have you tried enabling cinematic mode then enabling player control? It might not work. It seems to obvious, but if you haven't tried it yet, I would give it a go.
