Help with overlays and effects?


I’m trying to finish up the first episode of my story but I’ve run into a problem when I was previewing the episode. I used a background, then I had my character in place and put an overlay over her. The problem I’m having is when I put a dim effect over everything, it applies only to the background and the character, but not to the overlay.

Here’s a small excerpt of my code. The part shown below is the part that doesn’t seem to be working like I wanted it to.


Anyone know how I can make this work?

Thanks in advance :smiley:

You’ll have to layer the overlays and your character. MEGAN should be at the lowest layer, the dim overlay should be at the highest layer, and the bed overlay should be in between MEGAN and the dim overlay.

INT. BED - TOP with BED OVERLAY at layer 2 with EFFECT DIM 60 at layer 3
@/MEGAN spot 1.487 100 -29 in zone # at layer 1
