Adding Overlays Doesn't Work

Hi everyone :heart: I really need your help with overlays.
I dunno what I’m doing wrong :frowning:
So, I’m writing INT. BACKGROUND with OVERLAY to 0.0 0 0 and it doesn’t work :frowning: When I preview it no matter in portal or in app there is no overlay at all :frowning:
I watched all videos on youtube, read almost all articles and it really doesn’t work.
Just in case, I’m trying to add an open door overlay.
Please help!

You need to put the layer but for the exact thing watch Joseph Evan

@Krystal.episode I already have. Doesn’t work :frowning:

Which background are you using?
Maybe send us your script?
I’m assuming that you’ve written the actual size of the overlay and not 0.0?
So: INT. BACKGROUND with OVERLAY to 1.0 x y ?
Because if you’ve used 0 it won’t show.

INT. FASHION HALL - DAY with OPEN DOOR to -2 -112 0.504
That’s the script

There is no errors in my script but also there is no overlay in preview :frowning:

Have you tried finding it with the overlay helper and dragging it around? -2 would have the overlay twice the size and upside down? Or is it meant to be:
OPEN DOOR to 0.504 -2 -112
