🏔 HOW TO: Loop your own Background

Hi, I have trouble with my script,
I want the overlay to run through 3 zone but it only run 2 zone and then return back at zone 1

EXT. DAY LIGHT - DAY with SKY DAY to 2.206 0 0
@zoom on 0 0 to 63% in 0
&overlay SKY DAY shifts to -320 0 in zone 1 in 1.0 THEN overlay SKY DAY shifts to -563 0 in zone 1 in 1.0 THEN overlay SKY DAY shifts to 0 0 in zone 1 in 0 loop INFINITE times
@overlay AIRPLANE BLUE AVIARIA opacity 1 in 0
@pause for 1.1



is it possible to make a looping backround but instead of it moving sideways it moves forward beacuse i want to make a looping background of a highway im not making sense ughhhh

That doesn’t make any sense upload an background as overlay how? I don’t see it

I try doing this doesn’t work at all,

&overlay 6160912332750848_SUNFLOWER shifts to [a spot to left] in zone 2 in 1 THEN overlay 6160912332750848_SUNFLOWER shifts to [a spot to right] in zone 2 in 1 loop 3 times
Not specifically is the spot left and right suppose to numbers?

It’s supposed to be numbers, and you have to convert the background to PNG if you want make a background overlay

Oh okay but how do i convert into i went on the website but when i go to files it won’t show as an PNG

Check out this video of the amazing episode author Joseph Evans! His channel has been helping me out like nuts! Hope you find what u need here cos I did :kissing::two_hearts::grin:
