I think you need to create the overlay as I can’t see that in your script
@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 0

No she doesn’t need to when she add it to background name with ‘WITH’. It appears. :blush:

Oh right yeah I didn’t see that it was added to the background :joy:

Okay, if they don’t work you can try this one.

Edit: There were too many layers with 3, so I kinda change it while making overlay’s layer above them. Hope it works.

Always use the & sign when adding characters/overlays at the beginning of the scene. This makes things so much smoother. If you use the @ sign, each character will pop up one by one.

You don’t need the shifts/scales commands for your overlay since you want the scale to be 1.0 and shift it to 0 0. This is already the default scale and placement for overlays.

Also, you don’t need to keep adding “CHARACTER moves to layer #”. With spot direction you can add the layer with the spot command.

Here is your script reorganized to be smoother.
