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.

Can I ask you one more thing?

Sure :smile:

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.
