DARA’S GUIDE: Overlays

I need help with looping my overlay (that is a background I uploaded as an overlay).

So basically I want the background to loop so it looks like a the car overlay is driving really fast.

However I am completely clueless, it is not working out with the code I have right now… :sweat_smile:

infinite is supposed to be all caps and use a number lower than 1

I’m trying to make my character go behind the car so it will look like they’re driving but when I move them to layer 0 and move the overlay to layer 2 and make the character do the animation it moves them to stand in front of the car

because you’re saying to move. it in front

I solved the problem but thanks

So I want to have a car drive into a scene and have the window sorta roll down like seen in the story Framed. Can anyone please help me with this??? I have no clue how to do this. And if you can do it I’ll message you what I want the scene to look like.

Thank you!

Sooo it still doesn’t loop, just moves from the right side to left…

EXT. MANHATTAN SKYLINE CAR LOOP - NIGHT with NIGHT CITY CAR with BLACK SIDE CAR
@transition fade in
@zoom on 60 24 to 137% in 1
&overlay NIGHT CITY CAR shifts to -466 -150 in zone 2 in 1 THEN overlay NIGHT CITY CAR shifts to 126 -182 in zone 2 in 0 loop INFINITE times
&overlay 6463081093660672_BLACK SIDE CAR shifts to -247 -190
&overlay 6463081093660672_BLACK SIDE CAR scales to 0.763 0.763
&overlay BLACK SIDE CAR to layer 2
&overlay NIGHT CITY CAR to layer 1

ah im not sure then

Anyone else can help me with this issue thoo? :worried:

Solved – I had a typo! :sweat:

Thank you so much, insightful :slight_smile:

What code do I use to hide to hide a overlay, the make it appear, the make disappear again?

So its like this?:

BACKGROUND NAME with OVERLAY NAME opacity zero

a few lines

@OVERLAYNAME (spot here) opacity 1

lines

@OVERLAYNAME opacity o

BACKGROUND NAME with OVERLAY NAME
&overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 0 in 0

a few lines

@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1 in [time]

a few lines

@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 0 in [time]

so I basically just have to time it for how long it appears for, or as long as the scene goes on?
