Car overlay nightmare


#1

I’ve been trying to fix my script for 2 days now and my car overlay still won’t co-operate!

There is a female character waiting for a car to come from left.
I’ve tried everything. Most of the times the driver character doesn’t even appear when I view the scene from the app and the car doesn’t stay where I want it to.

I tried following @Apes guide but I think I made it worse

EXT. SNOWYROAD with CAR ANGLE SILVER to 1.000 -1233 -5

@LIV spot 0.993 238 170 in zone 2 AND LIV starts idle_phone_sad_loop AND LIV faces left
@cut to zone 2

@REID spot 1280 -724 -133 AND REID faces right
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -1233 -5
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 1.000 1.000

@pause for a beat

&REID walks to spot 1280 -163 -198 in 3.0 AND REID does that while idle
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -666 -68 in 3.0
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 1.000 1.000

This is my script. I’m trying to get the car to drive into the scene.
Help me I’m going insane :(((

let me check your code :slight_smile:

Please do!
Oh and I’m using a custom BG in case that makes any difference :confused:

I noticed a few errors

you didn’t put a dot in the character size it should look like this:

@REID spot 1.280 -724 -133 AND REID faces right

also, there’s no need to place the car again if you already did it in the background.

again no dot, and it should be does it while

&REID walks to spot 1.280 -163 -198 in 3.0 AND REID does it while idle

If a scene takes place in a different zone you don’t have to put your car offscreen :slight_smile: place it in zone one.
You cut to the zone and add REID which means it will appear in zone 2, remember to add zones number to the shifts commands as well.

What am I missing :’(

EXT. SNOWYROAD with CAR ANGLE SILVER to 1.000 -1233 -5 in zone 1

@LIV spot 0.993 238 170 in zone 2 AND LIV starts idle_phone_sad_loop AND LIV faces left
@cut to zone 2

@REID spot 1.280 -724 -133 in zone 1 AND REID faces right

@pause for a beat

&REID walks to spot 1.280 -120 -170 in 3.0 AND REID does it while idle
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -394 -37 in 3.0 in zone 2


#7

You didn’t copy the code for REID when his in the car offscreen (your code is different than mine) also, the overlay placement is different.

Oh my god! It worked!
I know that we just met but I love you :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:
