#1

Hi is there anyone that could help me? Im trying to spot the character under the blanket overlay but when i spot the character and the overlay they go into different spots. I’m not sure how to explain it right but I hope someone understands lol
Here’s a picture of my script, let me know if I did anything wrong.Uploading: 20190101_195928.jpg…

Here’s some helpful guides:

Spot Directing: Spot Directing (Moving Characters Around)
Animating Overlays: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS
Layers: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers

You need to copy the new coordinates that you get and paste them into the script. Then you will save and test it all out.

Make sure you specify zone w/ spotting if there is more than one.

(Can’t see the pic, so I can’t specify for you.)

Ok I typed it down

INT.CITY GIRL BEDROOM- DAY with CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET TO -779 -23 1.73

@overlay CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET shifts to -779 -23
@overlay CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET scales to 1.173 1.173

@cut to zone 1

@overlay CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET moves to layer 2

@AUDREY stands screen center in zone 3 AND AUDREY is sleep_sitting AND AUDREY faces right

@AUDREY moves to layer 1

@pan to zone 3 in 5

@CALEB spot 1.114 413 -2 AND CALEB faces left AND CALEB moves to layer 4

@CALEB walks to spot 1.114 225 2 in 2

Here’s your issues:

  1. You have the size in the wrong place and it’s the wrong number:

It’s should read like so:
INT.CITY GIRL BEDROOM- DAY with CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET to 1.173 -779 -23

  1. Remove the extra stuff.

Since you have the overlay in your background you don’t need to add it in again:

Plus you don’t have to move the overlay to a different layer, you can just add the layer into the background command:

INT.CITY GIRL BEDROOM- DAY with CITY GIRL BEDROOM SHEET TO 1.173 -779 -23 in zone 1 at layer 2

  1. And this is just an FYI, the command to move an overlay to a different layer is:

@overlay OVERLAY NAME to layer ___
