DARA’S GUIDE: Overlays

I’m trying to put characters behind seats so I made an overlay but, it’s not working. Can you help me?

hi I wanted to rotate my overlays but I am unable to make them rotate continuously
This is what I am writing but they only rotate once :

&overlay WHEEL rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0.5 loop INFINITE times
&overlay WHEEL 2 rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0.5 loop INFINITE times

I’m trying to make a table and 2 chairs on either side scene and i don’t know how to flip the chair overlay to the other direction.
The original overlay of the chair faces left but I want to rotate it to the right for the 2nd chair… does that make sense? :sweat_smile:

I’m probably just making a stupid mistake that’s an easy fix, but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
I’m trying to change the opacity of an overlay but I keep getting an error.

Hi there, the script doesn’t like overlay names with “AND” or “THEN” in them because it thinks your trying to use the “and/then” commands, so you will need to reupload that overlay with a different name without using AND
