DARA’S GUIDE: Creating Text from Overlays

OMG I didn’t know this was a thing. I’ve been creating every text as a seperate overlay and had to wait for them to be approved. MY life has now been saved

@Dara.Amarie whenever I do this I use non-existing overlays. When doing it the first time it works perfectly, but when I come back to my script after a few days for example, it will say these overlays don’t exist. Can you help me with this problem?

Does not work at all.

It does work. You might be doing something wrong. What does your script look like?

Hey @Dara.Amarie, I tried using the code and the overlay that I used plus the text doesn’t appear on my screen. Here it is.

Summary

@transition fade out black 2

INT. BLACK - DAY

@overlay CAR BUG REAR create text A tale connected to The Hobbit

@transition fade in black 2

Use a different background. Overlays don’t work well with the INT. BLACK - DAY/NIGHT background
