How to move overlays?


#1

Hi,
So my scene is where MC stands next to her bed and throws her alarm clock off the screen. So how do I set the alarm clock (overlay) in the spot I want and how do I get it to move off screen?

Idk sorry :confused::confused::confused:


#3

That’s okay. :confused:

Sorry :frowning:️ I’ve seen people do it though, maybe search for it on YouTube?

I was looking for help on overlays and saw you were really good with them so i have a question. If your character is already in zone 1 and is facing left how would you throw the overlay the same way and off screen without it going to the right If that makes any sense
