I’ve seen a lot of people making help threads and I’ve decided to make one of my own. I really want to help people in this community, so if you need help with anything, just ask away and I’ll do my best to give you a hand.

How To Use Props:

add - @add PropName to CHARACTER

How To Use Overlays

X = X axis (left to right)
Y = Y axis (up and down)
T = time it takes

INT. PHILADELPHIA BEDROOM CANDLE - NIGHT with OVERLAY to 0 0 0

shift/move - @overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y in T
ex: @overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to 100 0 in 0

scale/resize - @overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to X Y

layer - @overlay OVERLAY to layer 0
the bigger the number, the more forward/in front

loop - @overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y in T THEN overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y in T loop 0 times
ex: @overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to 102 0 in 0.5 THEN overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to 106 0 in 0.8 loop 3 times

remove - @overlay OVERLAY clear

How To Zoom

@zoom on X Y to % in T
X = X axis (left to right)
Y = Y axis (up and down)
% = percentage of zoom (default is 100%)
T = time it takes to zoom

How to play guitar:

  1. Search a picture of the guitar you want and upload it as an overlay.
The picture I'm using is this:

I used Gimp to rotate it to the position I want.

  1. position your overlay
    ex: INT. EMPTY STAGE - DAY with PLAY BLACK GUITAR to .650 97 175
    &CHARACTER stands screen center AND CHARACTER faces right
    @CHARACTER is play_airguitar_neutral_loop

  2. to make it more realistic, loop your overlay
    ex: @overlay PLAY BLACK GUITAR shifts to 100 171 in 0.5 THEN overlay PLAY BLACK GUITAR shifts to 99 177 in 0.5 loop 3 times
