Coding an UI in INK style

I tried using the “ui” command for my overlay but it didn’t show even when I set the opacity to 1. When I changed the command back to “@overlay” it became visible again. Could it be that the ui command is only available in limelight?

Can you show your script?

I’m not a pro but maybe remove the “in 4” as on Dara Amarie’s site the “ui” command doesn’t work with time…

oh yes the “in 4” wasn’t actually there when I first tested it. I just copy pasted my code which now use the “@overlay” command and I forgot to delete the “in 4”

You’re not seeing the ui because you’re using zones with it. uis pin themselves to the screen and act as if they’re always in zone 1, the default zone. If you move them to zone 3, then you’ll just never see them. No matter how much you pan or cut zones. Just remove the zone command entirely.


It does though? I use uis with time constantly and have never had any issues


Thank you for letting me know. :heartpulse: :grin:


oh my god you’re right!! I removed the zone and it worked just fine. Thanks for the help!!
