If you want to use the same overlays as me, please dm so I can e-mail them to you. The forum is currently having a bug that prevents us from uploading PNG images.
Optional: Rotate the overlay at the beginning of the scene, so the 3D rotation looks less evenly and therefore more natural.
Recommendation: 10-80, 100 - 140 degrees
Place your overlay off screen - top left or top right corner.
Shift the overlay slowly, as it’s a light object. For best result use easing function.
It’s important to use & instead of @ for this command, otherwise the next animation will starts after this one ends.
Pause - so that the roation doesn’t start right away, where the overlay isn’t fully visible on screen yet.
“3D rotation” - it’s more of an ilusion of rotation that actual rotation. The overlay is scaled in only one direction (x or y), instead of 2 as usual.
@overlay OVERLAY scales to 0.412 0.412 in t
@overlay OVERLAY scales to 0.412 -0.412
Tip: This kind of rotation looks also pretty cool on doors - it creates an actual ilusion of the door being opened.
The overlay is ‘pressed’ into oposite dimension, creating a ‘mirror image’ - it looks like it has turned on the other side (which is of course impossible, as overlays are 2D images and therefore have only 1 side).
Now do the same again but in the other dimension. Meaning - if you rotated the overlay in coordinate y (vertical), now do it in x (horizontal) and vice versa.
I hope this is quite understandable for you people. If not, you can just copy my script, lol You can play around with the timing, scaling etc.
You can of course use it for any kind of item that fits for this animation. I recommend for it to be a light, thin object like a piece of paper or confetti. Other things would just look weird in this kind of animation.
