How would I make a overlay fade into a scene?
I’d recommend checking out this helpful guide: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS
Thank you so much.
One more thing!
#Here’s an example using the overlay CONCERT CROWD :
#So, after I place it into the scene using all the commands you’d use to place an overlay, when it comes to fading it:
@overlay CONCERT CROWD opacity 0.5 in 2
#What this means:
#Since the opacity is 0.5, the overlay is see through. In 2 means it takes 2 seconds for that to happen.
In case you’re still stuck you can test this code out to see how it goes (remember that this overlay will be in zone 1 because I put it there):
#So, here’s an example:
&overlay CONCERT CROWD create
&overlay CONCERT CROWD shifts to 196 223 in zone 1
&overlay CONCERT CROWD scales to 1.0 1.0
@overlay CONCERT CROWD opacity 1 in 0
Bla bla bla.
#Later on in the scene, you can write:
@overlay CONCERT CROWD opacity 0 in 5
#This means the overlay will fade (0 means it’s not visible) and it will take 5 seconds for it to do so.
Working on the scene now, so far going good. Thank you for typeing it out like this also for me.
No problem, good luck!
Can I ask you one more thing?
If I do scene and put the overlay with the background but I want it to show later I would put
@overlay WELCOME opacity 0 right? or is it something different?
Yes, you’d have the overlay at an opacity of 0 so no one can see it.
If you want it to fade in later, you can do something like:
@overlay WELCOME opacity 1 in 4.5
Meaning the overlay WELCOME will fade into the scene in 4.5 seconds. Again, this is just an example. You will have something completely different, probably.
Okay thank you.
