How to move a overlay in middle of scene

So I have an overlay that is in place and where it needs to be but I want the character to stand up and I want the overlay to move with him, how do I do that?

Here is an amazing example: 🚗 HOW TO: Drive into / Drive Off the scene with Character inside (moving the car and character at the same time can be applied to moving an overlay and character at the same time)

Use & for CHAR and & for the overlay or vice versa so it happens at the same time and use shifting, adding a number, in seconds to the shifting overlay command.

Example from linked thread:

&JAMES walks to spot 1.032 106 -85 in 3.0 AND JAMES does it while idle
@overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -342 -48 in 3.0

@overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP shifts to 135 119

@overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP scale to 1.054

It says I can’t do it??

@overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP scales to 1.054 1.054

Also use & so both commands happen at the same time and add in seconds, like this:

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP shifts to 135 119 in 3
&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP scales to 1.054 1.054 in 3
@CHAR

Okay thank you

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP shifts to 135 119 in zone in S <— seconds
&CHAR is stand_up

That still didnt work :frowning:

INT.SPENCERLIVINGROOM-NIGHT with HAIRANDMAKEUP to 1.0541 130 29 in zone 2

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP moves to layer 1

&zoom reset

&cut to zone 2

&QUITEN spot 0.885 222 183 AND QUITEN moves to layer -1 AND QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN is talk_sit_neutral_arms_crossed AND TAYLER spot 0.605 311 209 AND TAYLER moves to layer 3 AND TAYLER faces left AND TAYLER is sleep_sitting

&TYLER spot 0.524 199 266 AND TYLER moves to layer -3 AND TYLER faces left AND TYLER is sleep_sitting

    QUITEN (talk_sit_neutral_arms_crossed)
Why are they singing aging?
    QUITEN
(This is why I watch Cars, very little singing.)

&SUMMER spot 1.020 -183 131 AND SUMMER faces right

@pause for a beat

@SUMMER walks to spot 1.020 44 128 in 2

    SUMMER (shocked)
(Oh my what happened to him?)

@zoom on 565 345 to 343% in 2

&SUMMER is shush

    QUITEN (talk_sit)
Summer, I love your kids and all but we need to talk about there move picking.

@pause for a beat

@zoom on 320 392 to 343% in 0

    SUMMER
(That's what he wants to complain about, and where is Spencer?)
(Oh who cares this is too funny and I need pictures.)

@SUMMER is film_phone

    SUMMER
(This is so go as his photo in my contacts.)

@zoom on 565 345 to 343% in 0

    QUITEN (talk_sit_doubtful)
Umm Summer, what are you doing?

&SUMMER is idle

@pause for a beat

@zoom on 320 392 to 343% in 0

    SUMMER (talk_neutral)
Did you happen to fall asleep while hanging out with my two?

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP shifts to 135 119 in 3

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP scale to 1.054 1.054 in 3

@overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP moves to layer 5

@QUITEN spot 1.046 225 123 AND QUITEN moves to layer 4 AND QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN is think

@pause for a beat

@zoom reset

This is the scene

For this part, try:

SUMMER (talk_neutral)
Did you happen to fall asleep while hanging out with my two?

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP shifts to 135 119 in 1

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP scales to 1.054 1.054 in 1

&overlay HAIRANDMAKEUP moves to layer 5

@QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN is stand_up AND QUITEN moves to layer 4 THEN QUITEN is think

@QUITEN faces left AND QUITEN spot 1.046 225 123 AND QUITEN is stand_up AND QUITEN moves to layer 4 THEN QUITEN is think

Everything works fine the only thing that doesn’t work right is when I try to move the overlay in the middle of scene

Hmm, that’s strange, have u tested it on mobile?
