Directing help needed!


#1

I need help!
How do I put on my backgrounds
And overlays???


#2

Backgrounds work like:
For example a cafe

INT. TABLE - DAY

but adding overlays you can put it beside it so it becomes

INT. TABLE - DAY with TABLE DINER

I’m not sure if there’s another way as I’m just a beginner writer slowly learning but that’s the way I’ve done it. You can use the directing helper to move it into place, and then copy the commands over.

Or you can check the guides!


#3

If you want it to put in in the background just put something like this

INT. BLUE - DAY with OVERLAY

But if you want it to put the overlay in the middle of the scene just put something like this

@overlay OVERLAY create
@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in s in zone #
@overlay OVERLAY scales to % % in s
@overlay OVERLAY opacity # in s

#Note that you need to type in everything in order for it to show up
