Right I think I figure that part out but how do I place the character and bg in the box and not have it showing in the scenes bg?

i always resize my characters and place the the character behind over another overlay- not sure if that made sense-

Okay so for clarification:

  1. I only need one location bg overlay which is the one that’ll be in the box (black)?
  2. I layer/direct spot my character whose going in the box behind the box(black)?
  3. How do I make the box (black) transparent?

exactly! and you can just simply lower the opacity in the script

Okay but what I’m a making the opacity low on the bg for the box(black)?
And do I need to make the box (black) transparent and if so do you know how?

Do you have a example script I can take a look at?

You’ll know if the overlay is transparent png bc if the screen is grey on the overlay from the writing portal.

So I have to have a transparent bg and/or transparent box?

For the black screen, it needs to be an overlay so it can be transparent, for the background, you don’t have to make it an overlay.

Well for the layering, you’ll have to put the phone call icons in front of the original phone call overlay.

I’ve watched this already the part I’m struggling with is how do I get the one character in the box (black) and not show in the background with the other character. That’s the part I need help with that’s not covered in this video.

Okay both characters bg should be overlays?

Never mind I figured it out I had to cut out a square in my background. Thanks everyone for your help.
