Remove “in zone 2” from that command. Pan to zone 2 first, then have your character enter

Hey, Dara. I need your help. I’m trying to do a remember choice/branching with two outfit choices. I wanted to choose option 1, but i change my mind on previewing option 2. But with the if/elif/else labeling, it goes with option 1 instead of option 2. I don’t know what I did wrong. (Here’s the part of my script where i’m struggling with the branching.)

label dressing_game1
CECILY (think)
(Alright two minutes I have to make a quick outfit choice and make quick adjustments.)
choice
“Poor outfit.” {
@CECILY is tinker_loop_rear
@CECILY is dustoff_loop
@CECILY changes into CECILY_poor
gain POOR
}
“Veronica from Heathers.” {

@CECILY is tinker_loop_rear
@CECILY is dustoff_loop
@CECILY changes into CECILY_heather

    CECILY (sing_pop_loop)
Got no time to knock, I'm a dead girl walking!!

gain HEATHER
}
@CECILY is shiftweight
@zoom on 182 0 to 296% in 2
@zoom on 180 227 to 296% in 2
@zoom on 169 365 to 296% in 2
@CECILY is primp_condescend
@zoom reset
CECILY (think)
(Is this my temporarily disguise?)
choice
“Yes, slay it girl!” {

@CECILY is primp_condescend
}
“No.” {

goto label dressing_game1
}
if (POOR) {
@add Hair Brush to CECILY
@CECILY is primp_brush_hair
@CECILY changes hair into Long Curly Hair
@remove Hair Brush from CECILY
}

elif (HEATHER) {
@add Hair Brush to CECILY
@CECILY is primp_brush_hair
@CECILY changes hair into Suburban Bubble
@pause for a beat
@remove Hair Brush from CECILY
@add Lipstick to CECILY
@CECILY is apply_lipstick
@CECILY changes mouthColor into Ruby Red
@pause for a beat
@remove Lipstick from CECILY
}

So I have an overlay in one scene and it’s working perfectly. A couple scenes later I go back to the same background so I just copy and pasted the overlay placement but I get this message…
“invalid formate to specify overlay animation parameters.”

This is my script:
INT. BASIC OFFICE OVERLAY - DAY with DESK W COMPUTER
@overlay 4957460768751616_DESK W COMPUTER shifts to 136 -26 in zone
@overlay 4957460768751616_DESK W COMPUTER scales to 0.874 0.874 in zone 1

#3193

You didn’t add the zone # for the shift code

#3194

oh duh, thank you so much

I noticed some of the music selections are “loop” would you happen to know how long the other (non loop) music selections play?

#3200

What’s the absolute MAXIMUM quantity of lines we’re allowed to have per episode? Not dialogue, but lines of code.

#3201

I’m not really sure what you’re asking? A sound/song will only loop if you use “music”

#3202

I believe it goes up to around 30,000 lines

Hey there! How do you use overlays? I’m trying to have two characters sitting behind a desk in the library background INT. PUBLIC LIBRARY - DAY Thanks!:smile:

#3204

Hey there! I’m trying to get a character behind an overlay, but it won’t work. Here’s the script if it’ll help::

EXT. JUVIE OLIVER ROW HOME - NIGHT with GARAGECRED1 to 1.084 -172 -46 in zone 2 at layer 2
@cut to zone 2
@pause for 1
@ADDISON moves to layer 0
@ADDISON changes into spy2
@ADDISON spot 1.133 -62 184
@pause for 1
@ADDISON moves to layer 2
@ADDISON walks to spot 1.133 192 164 AND ADDISON does it while run_athletic
ADDISON
You told me the coast was clear!
