Hey everyone!

I read the thread about creating the blurred background effect similar to the one in Saige Mercer’s The New Girl.
https://forums.episodeinteractive.com/t/how-to-make-a-background-blurry/14411

To do this I used the suggested:

@overlay _______ opacity 0 in 0

@overlay _______ opacity 1 in seconds

For some reason, the blurred overlay is making the original background brighter than before, and I’m not sure why. It sort of ruins the transition, as the background will go as commanded, but from super bright to regularly blurry.

Weird brightness:

Once the overlay fades in the brightness goes away, so I’m wondering why this is happening and how to fix it; or if anyone has had a similar issue.

Any tips? :relaxed:

My script; the actions are underlined in red!

Um… That is wierd, well, at least the lights on the mirror look like they work! :smiley:

True! It just looks kind of weird as it goes from bright to normal (not a smooth transition to blur), and I don’t know why it’s happening.
