Code Help - Looping Overlay Commands

I’m trying to make my overlay move and flicker, but at different speeds. Can anyone see what I’ve done wrong?

EXT. FIRE - NIGHT with FLAMES
&overlay 5156305046798336_FLAMES scales to 2.211 2.211
&overlay 5156305046798336_FLAMES moves to layer 2
&zoom reset
&overlay FLAMES shifts to 0 0 in zone 1 in 15 THEN overlay FLAMES shifts to -378 0 in 15 THEN overlay FLAMES shifts to -381 -679 in zone 1 in 15 THEN overlay FLAMES shifts to -28 -675 in zone 1 in 15 loop INFINITE times
&overlay FLAMES opacity 0.2 in 0.5 THEN overlay FLAMES opacity 0.7 in 4 THEN overlay FLAMES opacity 0.5 in 0.5 THEN overlay FLAMES opacity 0.8 in 0.5 THEN overlay FLAMES opacity 0.3 in 4 THEN overlay FLAMES 0.5 in 0.5 loop INFINITE times

To clarify, it does move, but the opacity isn’t changing.

you forgot the word “opacity” there

Okay, that helped! Now I just have to get the timing down to make these flames flicker!
