How to shift an overlay with uploaded background?


#1

So I need help. Currently, I’m trying to use the airplane overlay with a U,S .map I uploaded. It works with @pause for a beat but not for overlay shifting code, I get an error saying the background doesn’t exist. Help?


#2

#3

No, as a background.


#4

How did u put it in the script?

EXT. US MAP - DAY with AIRPLANE to 0.244 213 162 in zone 1
sound airplane_flyby
@overlay AIRPLANE shifts to 0.244 45 177 in zone 1 in 2


#6

Are u sure the name of the bg is name like that?


#7

Yep, i’m sure.


#8

@KCPopcore can u help her…


#9

just do
@overlay AIRPLANE shifts to 45 177 in 2
You don’t need to add the scale number :slight_smile: (You can put the zone, but as the overlay is already in zone 1, in this case you don’t need to.)

She is saying that the background doesn’t exits


#11

That’s not the problem. Her coding is wrong. Sometimes the errors don’t match up with the actual problem.


#12

Oh

Thank you so much!!

As @EliseC said, I do believe it’s related to the factor that you including the scaling in the shifting. If it doesn’t work, you can always try adding @pause for 0.01 so that the coding will hopefully have the time to catch up, and it doesn’t affect your story.
