How do I rotate overlays in place without it stopping?


#1

I’m trying to get my overlay to continuously rotate in place and not stop. How do I do that? I’ve tried different things and looking it up, but I can’t find anything. Does anyone know how to do that?

&overlay OL NAME rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1 THEN overlay OLNAME rotates -360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1 loop INFINITE times

Make sure to use the & sign :smiley:

0.5 0.5 rotates the overlay from the middle, although once it rotates I usually have to shift it again!

Thank you so much, it worked! I’ve been trying to get it for so long. Thank you again. :smile:

Of course!
Check out this link, it’s got everything you need to know about overlays :wink:

Id just like to say freaking thank you I’ve been trying to figure this out every now and then for months and it really deterred me from writing my story. Your a freaking life saver.

Hi. I want to put an overlay moving on the scene but at the same time rotating. With the following script I have the overlay rotates in zone 3 but the scene does not change to zone 2

&NATALIA is slap_face AND THOMAS is mortified
&overlay KNIFE create
&overlay KNIFE shifts to 106 332 in zone 3
&overlay KNIFE scales to 0.136 0.136 in zone 3
&overlay KNIFE opacity 1 in 0 in zone 3
@pause for 0.1
&overlay KNIFE shifts to 48 334 in 6
@overlay KNIFE rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1 THEN overlay KNIFE rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 loop INFINITE times
@pause for 1
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 320 328 to 200% in 0
&overlay KNIFE shifts to -28 341 in 6
@overlay KNIFE rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2 THEN overlay KNIFE rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 loop INFINITE times
