@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. TABLE shifts to -24 215
@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. TABLE scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. COMPUTER shifts to 50 160
@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. COMPUTER scales to 1.000 1.000

You have called your overlay with _INT. TABLE like _INT. in backgrounds

#27

INT.background with POLL1 ( overlay) to 0.982 -6 11 in zone 1

#28

Yeah i know it was a mistake but they are real overlays

#29

ok
If you place the overlay in the background you do not need it @overlay 4895512273223680_INT. TABLE shifts to -24 215
@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. TABLE scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. COMPUTER shifts to 50 160
@overlay 4895512273223680_INT. COMPUTER scales to 1.000 1.000
INT. WRITERROOM with INT. COMPUTER to 1.000 50 160 in zone 3 with INT. TABLE to 1.000 50 160 in zone 3

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since coding is involved. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics. :wink:

What should it say then?

#32

Code for adding an overlay into your scene:

INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY with OVERLAY to S X Y in zone # at layer #

So, can write:
INT. WRITERROOM with INT. COMPUTER to 1.000 50 160 in zone 3 at layer 3 with INT. TABLE to 1.000 -24 215 in zone 3 at layer 2

This is just an example, you can use any number for the layer : )
Also, if you do this, the computer will be at a higher layer than the table (because 3 is greater than 2), thus making the computer appear in front of the table if you put them together.
