What coding do you use to move overlays and fade overlays?

@Jo.Author, the command to move overlays is:

@overlay [OVERLAYNAME] shifts to X Y in T

X is the horizontal component (left & right)
Y is the vertical component (up & down)
T is the timing in seconds for how quickly the overlay will move to the inputted spot

The command for fading / making them see-through is:

@overlay [OVERLAYNAME] opacity % in T

% is the opacity’s percentage which can be written as either from 0% to 100% or 0 to 1.
T is the timing in seconds for how quickly the overlay will change its opacity.


For example, if you want the overlay to gradually fade away from full visibility to invisibility, use this command:

@overlay [OVERLAYNAME] opacity 0% in 5

With this, the overlay will be gone in 5 seconds time. I hope this makes sense!
