How do you loop an overlay

Script:

EXT. FOREST LOOPING - NIGHT
music crickets_fade
@transition fade in black
@pause for a beat
@ADRIAN enters from left to screen center AND ADRIAN is run_jog

In the end of what the overlay’s doing you need to write:
loop INFINITE times

But I don’t see an overlay in your script?

I am using episodes forest background

When an original background from episode has “looping” in its name it is supposed to loop on its own. When you previewed your story wasn’t it looping?

Wait a minute, I’ll test that background in my script to see if it’s the background’s problem or if it’s something that’s only happening to you.

So, I tested the background and it didn’t loop. I think that background has some sort of problem that has to be fixed. You can try to upload it as an overlay and shift it from left to right or from right to left and then use the “loop INFINITE times” command.

I tried to upload it as a overlay but it wasn’t working… .3.

What did it say? When you tried to upload it?


You needed to turn the jpg into a png. Here you go. You might need to resize it.

No like I went into the folder it was in to upload and it wasn’t there
