Okay. So I’ve read a million things on looping overlays but I have no idea how to do it. can anybody help?
How to loop overlays:
To read about overlays, check out: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS
This is so helpful! Thank you so much
Can you help me get it to loop neatly please? This is my script and below are the road background and road overlay
EXT. ROAD DAY with WIDESCREEN_TV with CAR SIDE PURPLE with LOOP_ROAD_DAY
@overlay 4963897588973568_WIDESCREEN_TV shifts to -295 -203
@overlay 4963897588973568_WIDESCREEN_TV scales to 4.078 4.078
@overlay 4963897588973568_WIDESCREEN_TV opacity 0.5 in 0
@overlay CAR SIDE PURPLE shifts to -50 -6
@overlay CAR SIDE PURPLE scales to 0.658 0.658
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 0
@MAIN CHARACTER spot 1.280 32 -176 AND MAIN CHARACTER faces right AND MAIN CHARACTER is idle_armscrossed_awkward_loop AND DAWN spot 1.280 119 -180 AND DAWN faces right AND DAWN is idle_cup_neutral_loop
&overlay LOOP_ROAD_DAY shifts to [a spot to the left] in zone 2 in 1 THEN overlay LOOP_ROAD_DAY shifts to [a spot to the right] in zone 2 in 1 loop 5 times
How do you stop the loop?
For instance, if I had a character walking on a looping overlay I created with the loop infinite times command, how would I get that overlay to kind of stop and let the character walk off the screen?
I’m probably incredibly late, but you can’t really stop an infinite loop command. Maybe add another overlay of the same thing to replace with and have to opacity 0 until it’s needed? Or just set the loop to a certain number of times instead of infinite.
