How do I put a coffee cup on a table?

Hey guys! :persevere: For hours I have tried to put a cup on a table but it’s not working… :disappointed_relieved:
My character should put it on the table :

@CHARACTER starts idle_happy_pose and CHARACTER faces left
@add Coffee Cup To Go to CHARACTER
@CHARACTER starts take_object_neutral
@pause for 4
&overlay COFFEE CUP to 0.848 121 386 in zone 2 at layer 2 ??? what should be here???
@remove Coffee Cup To Go from CHARACTER

PILS HIELP MI :tired_face:

&overlay COFFEE CUP shifts to to 0.848 121 386 in zone 2 AND overlay COFFEE CUP to layer 2

It’s easier if you just put the coffee cup in its place with the background.

INT. BACKGROUND - DAY with COFFEE CUP to 0.848 121 386 in zone 2 at layer 2
&overlay COFFEE CUP opacity 0 in 0

then when you want it to appear just write

&overlay COFFEE CUP opacity 1 in 0

Make sure that you’ve made the coffee cup an overlay

Using that method, will cause the overlay to flash briefly before the scene starts.
I think if you want the overlay to appear in the middle of the scene, you ought to use the good ol
@overlay create method

I’ve always used that method in my story & it works fine :slight_smile:

For some reason it worked well for me on my PC with that version, but when I used it on my phone the overlays kept flashing before the scene started, Idk why for me…I guess I’m unlucky :joy:

WOOOO THANK YOU @Jadlyss AND @Dona_H ! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::sparkling_heart:

Ohh well… Now the spot does not work… Ummm?

Can I see the script for the spot?

Thanks but it works now XD I refreshed and changed the background (introduced another scene) and then I’m gonna come back to the coffee scene XD

Okay now I do need some help. :thinking: The character won’t show up! :worried:

@Dona_H save me? XD

you only supposed to use animation in the brackets for dialogue.

For character doing animation without dialogue just remove the brackets

@CHARACTER starts think_rubchin

Also, starts is misspelled on line 1909

Also, you use @ instead of & for your character actions

I modified the script but there is something wrong with the spot! She’s not going where she is supposed to… :thinking:

do you want her to be behind?

No. The counter bakery is at layer 1
I put her at layer 2 but she is still behind

can you show your script? you can copy and paste :slight_smile:

For some reason, now she won’t go in zone 2.
INT. BAKERY NO OL - DAY with COUNTER BAKERY at layer 1 with COFFEE CUP to 0.236 58 256 in zone 2 at layer 2

@NYNY enters from left to spot 1.022 119 120
@NYNY changes into Small Floral Dress
@pause for a beat
@cut to zone 2
@NYNY walks to spot 1.022 489 120 in 2 in zone 2 at layer 2
@pause for a beat
@NYNY starts think_rubchin
@NYNY faces left and NYNY starts think_rubchin
@NYNY starts idle_rear and NYNY faces right

I guess I wrote it wrong XD

you can’t add at layer 2 to walks to command , also zone needs to be first then time


@NYNY walks to spot 1.022 489 120 in zone 2 in 2 AND NYNY moves to layer 2
