Can someone please explain how to work with this overlay?


#1

I want a charecter sit in the back row, so I need to work with overlays.

That’s why I write

INT MOVIESEATS- NIGHT with INT MOVIESEATS -NIGHT as an overlay, but it shows me an error as it’s not an overlay. BUT when I had a scene at the cafe I wrote INT BAKERY -DAY with INT BAKERY- DAY (as an overlay) and the program was ok with that! But INT bakery day isn’t an overlay as well, so what’s the difference?

You can’t add a background as an overlay, that’s why it’s not working. You can try to upload this one as an overlay. Also I don’t know why it worked with the bakery… Did you upload it to your account? Or did you use the counter bakery instead?


#3

I’m trying to use INT. BAKERY - DAY but it’s not coming up with the bakery overlay already there but it did before. Can anyone help?


#4

You need to use the background with OL in the title, that one has the overlay already.

I found how to make this scene in the cafe here :

So I just copied the commands and somehow it worked

Could you write the commands maybe? I get so confused when I work with these overlays, like one time it works another doesn’t (


#6

Okay that worked because the INT. BAKERY - DAY background has an integrated overlay. However that’s not the case cor the INT. MOVIESEATS - NIGHT background. You have to find seats overlay, upload them to your account, and then use them in your script.

Now that makes sense, thank you)


#8

I just realized OL stands for overlay! :hushed: Didn’t even figure it out until I read your post

I didn’t do that but it’s working now. I just needed to restart the app. :sweat_smile:
