How to get a character behind overlay

#1

Hey, so I’m writing my story, and there is a scene where I place the fan in front of the character in the red carpet, and no matter which layer I place, the character will still place in front of the layer?

#2

Move it to layer -1 because the overlay is at layer 0:

@CHARACTER moves to layer -1

#3

it didn’t work

#4

Try moving the layers in increments of 2. For some reason layer 0, layer 1, layer 2, etc. doesn’t work for me. I have to do layer 0, layer 2, layer 4, layer 6 etc.

Also I recommend having both characters in 2 different layers as long as its below the CONCERT CROWD overlay.

#5

It didn’t work, either… I should give up on this :sweat_smile::cold_sweat::cold_sweat:
But thanks for all of your help, T.T

#7

#8

Didn’t work for me :frowning: :frowning: Any idea why?

#9

what exactly is not working?

#10

My character won’t get behind the overlay, I tried multiple of ways…

#11

Yes of course.
Here it is:
@follow GRACE to screen left in zone 3
@GRACE moves to layer 2
@EMILIE walks to screen center in 3
@overlay DESK OFFICE WOOD in zone 3 to layer 1
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 0
@EMILIE spot 1.280 222 -164
@EMILIE moves to layer 3
@GRACE spot 1.280 81 -61
@GRACE moves to layer -6

#13

this command is wrong.

Use:

@overlay DESK OFFICE WOOD to layer 1

or

INT. BACKGROUND with DESK OFFICE WOOD in zone 3 at layer 1

#14

Omg thanks I’ll try it!
