How to make car move into scene

#3

Hey sweetie thank you. I was on that site, but my cars position is floating with the codes she gives. I just want my car to enter a scene then stop. I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find anything.

Hi I really need help, my car overlay won’t move with my characters is there anything wrong with my script?

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY - NIGHT with GREY JEEP to 0.752 -402 -59
@zoom on 43 4 to 99% in 2
@MCMALE spot 0.500 -184 122 AND MCMALE faces right AND MC spot 0.450 -236 146 AND MC faces right
&MCMALE walks to spot 0.500 343 122 in 3.0 AND MCMALE does it while idle_happy AND MC walks to spot 0.450 334 146 in 3.2 AND MC does it while idle_happy
&overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to 324 -59 in 3.0
&overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 0.752 0.752

@Selineva You have GREY JEEP next to the background name, but you’re animating CAR ANGLE SILVER. Maybe that’s the issue?

Thank you for your answer but it don’t work either
I don’t see what’s wrong :confused:

The problem is because you are animating the overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER instead of GREY JEEP

Oh Gosh I really need to change my glasses :joy:
The car moves now but not at the same time as my characters. Is there something wrong with the timing?

I changed the timing for my characters and it works.

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY - NIGHT with GREY JEEP to 0.752 -402 -59
@MCMALE spot 0.500 -184 122 AND MCMALE faces right AND MC spot 0.450 -236 146 AND MC faces right
@pause for a beat
&MCMALE walks to spot 0.500 348 122 in 2.3 AND MCMALE does it while idle_happy
&MC walks to spot 0.450 337 146 in 2.4 AND MC does it while idle_happy
&overlay GREY JEEP shifts to 324 -59 in 3.0
&overlay GREY JEEP scales to 0.752 0.752
&zoom on 43 4 to 99% in 2

Thank you so much for your help I’m so grateful :relaxed:

Hello! So I’m also a new writer. I want both characters to drive into a scene. I believe the timer of either the characters or the car is the issue, but I can’t seem to correct it. I used my very own custom overlay, but you can replace it with ANGLE CAR SILVER for explanation. I’m using LIMELIGHT template.

Here is my script

EXT. MG DINER - DAY with RUDY CAR to 0.639 -758 -45

@RUDY spot 0.500 -184 94 AND RUDY faces right AND MIKA spot 0.450 -236 116 AND MIKA faces right
@pause for a beat
&RUDY walks to spot 0.500 140 94 in 3.0 AND RUDY does it while idle_happy_loop
&MIKA walks to spot 0.450 67 116 in 3.0 AND MIKA does it while idle_happy_loop
&overlay RUDY CAR shifts to -137 -45 in 3.0
&overlay RUDY CAR scales to 0.639 0.639
&zoom on 43 4 to 99% in 2

Your characters are not in the car while they offscreen. So I moved the overlay a bit and changed the place of characters

EXT. MG DINER - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER to 0.639 -458 -50

@RUDY spot 0.500 -185 90 AND RUDY faces right AND MIKA spot 0.450 -257 108 AND MIKA faces right
@pause for a beat
&RUDY walks to spot 0.500 140 94 in 3.0 AND RUDY does it while idle_happy_loop
&MIKA walks to spot 0.450 67 116 in 3.0 AND MIKA does it while idle_happy_loop
&overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -137 -45 in 3.0
&overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 0.639 0.639
&zoom on 43 4 to 99% in 2
