Help With Background


#1

When using a cafe background, how do i get the character to stand behind the counter?


#2

A counter overlay


#3

But none of them match the counter in the cafe do it just looks weird…?


#4

Which background is it? Some backgrounds have overlays in them already.


#5

I can make the counter into an overlay for you!


#6

Its INT. CAFE OL - DAY


#7

omigod that’d be amazing


#8

That one has the overlay in it, you just need to layer the counter and people. When backgrounds have OL in the title the overlay is in there already. Change it to this.

INT. CAFE OL - DAY at layer 3
Whoever you want behind it should be at layer 2 or less and the people in front should be layer 4 or more.


#9

Pm me the background and I’ll be more than happy to help

Try moving your character that you want behind the counter to layer 0 or layer -1 :woman_shrugging:t2:


#13

The background INT. CAFE OL - DAY only has the table and chair overlay.

The background you want to use is INT. CAFE2 - DAY, which as the counter overlay that you need. You don’t need to add layers because characters will stand behind overlays by default.

Ok, tysm! And also with the background with the counter overlay, is there a way to make a character walk in front of it instead of behind?


#15

If you want a character in front of the overlay, then that’s when you need to use layers. So since the overlay is already attached to the background, you’d have to use the background name as the overlay name to layer it:

INT. CAFE2 - DAY. with INT. CAFE2 - DAY at layer 2

Then the person behind the overlay should be at layer 1 and the person in front of the overlay should be at layer 3: @CHARACTER moves to layer #
