Does anyone know how I can put an overlay in a specific zone in a specific size?


#1

hey guys

I have been trying to figure this out for over an hour and officially give up on trying to do this on my own :joy:
I really hope I make sense! I’m really fed up rn :rofl:

PLEASE HELP ME !

In your background name you can add the zone
For example
INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY with LOCKERS in zone (1,2,3) at layer (number)

You don’t have to specific the layer, and as for a specific size, you’ll have to utilize the directing help tool.
I’ll show you a gif of how to get there!

In the bottom, they’ll be a code for you to paste onto your script.

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY with SPOTLIGHT1 in zone 3

@cut to zone 3

@overlay 6696436067074048_SPOTLIGHT1 shifts to -1 -232
@overlay 6696436067074048_SPOTLIGHT1 scales to 2.928 2.928

@SKYLAR enters from left to screen left

** this is what I have done so far but I know it isn’t right **

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY with SPOTLIGHT1 in zone 3

@cut to zone 3

@overlay 6696436067074048_SPOTLIGHT1 shifts to -1 -232 in zone 3
@overlay 6696436067074048_SPOTLIGHT1 scales to 2.928 2.928 in zone 3

@SKYLAR enters from left to screen left

Or you could do this.

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY with SPOTLIGHT1 to 2.928 -1 -232 in zone 3

@ SKYLAR enters from left to screen left

Either way works!
