Help with Custom Overlays & Advanced Directing


#1

Hi, I’m writing a story where I want to have a character “shoot” ice out of their hands. I’ve already uploaded the overlay (ICICLE). I try to place it specifically, but it isn’t working. I did make the background of the image transparent in Photoshop before I uploaded it. The scene is in zone 2 and the camera is “@cut to zone 2 (direct quote from code)” Here is the code:

@overlay ICICLE create
@overlay ICICLE shifts to 215 384
@overlay ICICLE scales to 0.493 0.493
@overlay ICICLE opacity 1

I also have all the characters in certain spots if that helps. Please help me. Thanks. :slight_smile:
