Characters fading

Is there a way to let characters fade in and out? I know how to do that with overlays (change the opacity) but I would need that for characters.
Thanks for any help!

Make your background an overlay, and place your character in the layers.
For example
INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY with SCHOOL HALLWAY in zone 1 at layer 2 (this is the background, that I made an overlay)

Since my “background overlay” is in layer two, I’ll add my “faded character” into layer 1, so they are behind my background overlay.
I’ll set the overlay of my background to 0.5, so the character appears as a ghost.
