How to use these overlays?

So I wanted to have Perrie stand behind the window so I had two overlays made the building and the middle window

EXT. PHILADELPHIA HOUSE - DAY with CONSERVATORY at layer 1 in zone 3 with WINDOW at layer 3 in zone 3
&zoom reset
&overlay 6696328589541376_CONSERVATORY shifts to -1 55 in zone 3
&overlay 6696328589541376_CONSERVATORY scales to 1.000 1.000
&overlay 6696328589541376_WINDOW shifts to 85 115 in zone 3
&overlay 6696328589541376_WINDOW scales to 1.000 1.000
&PERRIE spot 0.327 114 275 and PERRIE moves to layer 2

The result

Is this a solid overlay? Maybe that’s why you can’t see the character. Maybe try to change opacity of the window?

I just added that in but still does not work
&overlay WINDOW opacity 0.5

Can you show your overlays?

Sorry for the delay but I have solved it

@Apes when I was duplicating the overlays it didn’t seem to duplicate
