Hi Dara (I’m so sorry for bothering you again and again)

It still does not work, and groups all characters in one zone like this

Hey Dara,

I have a problem with a scene and I really need your help.

The scene is in a room with a lot of people and then the main character is supposed to walk across the room from zone 1 to zone 3 but when I do it it looks like she’s walking directly through the other characters instead of walking in front of them like I want her to.

Please help me

Lots of support,
CERW

You have to layer your characters: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers

You need to add the zone to your character’s placements

&CHARACTER spot scale x y in zone # at layer # and CHARACTER faces left/right and CHARACTER is animation

Remove the layer from that command. It shouldn’t be there. You also need to add the zone to the overlay shift command

It says error 11 and sometimes when I refresh it, it says error 67

There’s a hidden error somewhere in your script that you’re gonna have to search for carefully. Check spotting, misspelled words, or anything that doesn’t look right.

Pan, zoom, and have your character walk all in the same exact amount of seconds. You also need to use the & sign when you pan and zoom so that it will happen at the same time your character walks.

So, I deleted some of the things I had written, and this is how it is now:

INT. JAILCELL with JAILCELL1 in zone 2 at layer 2 with JAILSBARS in zone 2 at layer 0
&cut to zone 2

The overlays still don’t appear in the preview. I also tried in the app, but it didn’t work. is this a glitch?

Try deleting everything, save, then add that in again
