Can someone help me with my code?


#1

This is my code:
INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY
@CEAK sits lower screen left AND CEAK faces right AND CEAK moves to layer 1
@overlay INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY moves to layer 2
@pause for a beat
@pan to zone 3
@AURORA enters from right to screen center AND AURORA moves to layer 3
@follow AURORA to screen right in zone 1
@AURORA starts curtsey
CEAK (talk_think)
Yes, Aurora?

When I run it code, it shows that Aurora is beneath the overlay, even though I moved her to a higher layer. I don’t know what’s wrong. Help, someone?


#2

Try something like this instead, might be wrong though since I don’t know if the background is also an overlay :sweat_smile:

INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY with INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY to layer 2
@CEAK sits lower screen left AND CEAK faces right AND CEAK moves to layer 1
@pause for a beat
@pan to zone 3
@AURORA enters from right to screen center AND AURORA moves to layer 3
@follow AURORA to screen right in zone 1
@AURORA starts curtsey
CEAK (talk_think)
Yes, Aurora?


#3

I think the overlays that are automatically added with the background are called what the background is called. I have to move the overlay so that I can put Aurora above, but when I do nothing happens.


#4

I don’t think that’s a valid command:
@CEAK sits lower screen left
What are you trying to do here?


#5

It’s basically a positioning. I don’t think that’s the problem though, it has worked before.


#6

Plase AURRORA offscreen first with the layer you want her at, then have her walk to screen center, instead of entering the scene.

INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY with INT. GREEK OFFICE - DAY at layer 2
@CEAK sits lower screen left AND CEAK faces right AND CEAK moves to layer 1
@pause for a beat
@pan to zone 3
@ AURORA spot 1.280 420 0 in zone 3 at layer 3
@ AURORA walks to screen center
@follow AURORA to screen right in zone 1
@AURORA starts curtsey
CEAK (talk_think)
Yes, Aurora?
