You’d have to create a choice to ask your readers which overlay best matches their skin color. (you can do this after the customization template)

label hand_overlay

NARR
Which skin tone best matches your own?

choice (SKIN_PHONE)
“Skin 1” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 1
@pause for 3

} “Skin 2” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 2
@pause for 3

} “Skin 3” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 3
@pause for 3

} “Skin 4” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 4
@pause for 3

} “Skin 5” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 5
@pause for 3

} “Skin 6” {
BACKGROUND with SELFIE FEMALE 6
@pause for 3
}

NARR
Is this your skin tone?
choice
“Yes” {
} “No, let me see the others” {
goto hand_overlay
}

Then to remember which overlay was chosen, use the “choice name and option method” here: HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

Each text bubble is an overlay, which means you have to upload and animate each individual text overlay to make it appear on the phone.

#3671

So, I uploaded overlays and NONE of them appear. When I move them around on the bottom it does say that the overlay was created, but theyre like invisible. I’ve tried both doing the BACKGROUND - with OVERLAY and the @overlay OVERLAY create but none of them work. Help?

#3672

#3673

If you’re adding the overlay to the background you don’t need to use the create command. Also make sure that you are adding the correct zone.

If you’re using the create command, you need to add the scale, shift, and opacity commands as well to make the overlay appear. You also need to add the correct zone to the shift command

thank you!

@Dara.Amarie

How would I create a plane crash scene using zooms and the colored transition scene thingys?

#3676

INT. ALLEY - DAY with INT. BAG - DAY
&zoom on 163 110 to 1197% in 0
&overlay 4753754183303168_INT. BAG - DAY shifts to -59 -61 in 0
&overlay 4753754183303168_INT. BAG - DAY scales to 0.046 0.046 in 0

Anybody?

#3682

You can shake the screen by zooming in at random spots in the span of 0.1 seconds each

@zoom on ____ in 0.1
@zoom on ____ in 0.1
@zoom on ____ in 0.1
@zoom on ____ in 0.1
@zoom on ____ in 0.1

Or you can have the zooms on the same line using THEN if you want to shake the screen while another command is happening:

&zoom on ____ in 0.1 THEN zoom on ____ in 0.1 THEN zoom on ____ in 0.1 THEN zoom on ____ in 0.1

If you want to use colorful transitions for an effect, you can transition in red/orange/yellow in less than 1 second to get that effect: What transitions are there?

#3683

Once you add a prop to a character, the prop will continue to stay on that character the whole time until you remove the prop.

#3684

Oh ok thank you for telling me that :grin:

#3685

What am I changing in the script?

#3686

You need to change “BACKGROUND” to an actual background name
