How do i put more than one overlay on?

Hey guys
i’m pretty new to this, and i wanted to know if anyone of you, know how to put more than one overlay on?
i’m currently making a scene in a class, and i want people to sit behind some desks, but i can only put one overlay on.
i’ve been trying a lot of different things, and have watched a lot of videos, but no one explains how to do it more precisely.

please help, thanks




Thank you so much, Dara!

Hey Dara, I used the script you advised here, but it’s not working for this… The second overlay keeps jumped to zone 1. Any ideas?

INT. DINING ROOM RESIDENTIAL - DAY with DINING to 1.000 -174 33 in zone 2 at layer 1 with DINING2 to 1.000 233 58 at layer 1

you prob know this cause its like a year later lol but i’m pretty sure you just put the overlay name with the background and then do the size commands under it like:

&overlay DINNING shifts to 1.000 -174 33 in zone 2 
&overlay DINNING moves to layer 1
&overlay DINNING2 shifts to 1.000 233 58 in zone 2
&overlay DINNING2 moves to layer 1

that is actually not true when you put overlay next to background you can write the shift and scale snd layer next to the overlay.

BACKGROUND with OVERLAY to # # # in zone # at layer #
