I did all that and it still not working

Hi! I need a little help figuring out how to put the desk overlay that comes with the episode background behind the girl in the jacket, but I don’t know how since there is no overlay name for it. Or is there? If there is, what is it called?

#1339

If an overlay is attached to the background, you would use the background name as the overlay name to layer it (or animate it).

INT. TEXAS AIRPORT OL - DAY with INT. TEXAS AIRPORT OL - DAY at layer #

Thank you so much!

I have another problem! I want a certain overlay to move in sync with one of my characters like this:
@overlay Backpack Quilt Stitched Open Top Leather Ivory shifts to 1.280 67 15 in 5 to zone 3
@YOU walks to spot 1.280 67 15 in zone 3 in 5

But when I typed that in, the overlay wouldn’t appear and I kept getting an error message.
Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

#1342

The shift command only uses the x and y coordinates. If you want to add the scale size, that’s a different command: @overlay OVERLAY scales to % % in T

I’m still a little confused. What command should I use then?

#1344

Just remove that scale size from the shifts command.

@overlay Backpack Quilt Stitched Open Top Leather Ivory shifts to 1.280 67 15 in 5 to zone 3

#1345

Oh ok. Thanks again!

#1346

For some reason, I’m still getting an error message.

#1347

That “to” should in the word in

#1348

I think I’m going to have to scrap it, because nothings working. Thanks for trying to help though:heart:

#1349

Okay so I’m looking at your script and you’ve got the command wrong for when you have your character walking to a spot.

The command for shifting overlays is:
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to x y in zone # in T

And the command for walking to a spot is:
@CHARACTER walks to spot % x y in zone # in T

You didn’t add the scale size for the walking command

Hello? How do you make your character exit, but still follow, like when you follow the character in another zone?

#1351

@(CHARACTER NAME) exits (Where you want it to exit)

#1352

like

@AMANI182-EPISODEEEEE exits left

or @ChayChay exits right

I need the reader to see that’s she’s exiting like when you do this;
@follow SOMEONE to screen left in zone 2

#1354

So you want them to walk to a different zone, then exit?

#1355

Yes.

#1356

@follow CHARACTER to [position] in zone # THEN CHARACTER exits left/right
