I have a problem with overlays!


#1

Hi, i have a problem with the overlays. It would be great if you could help me. The problem is i can’t see them in the previewer. The comands i use are:
INT. COLLEGE BATHROOM - DAY with TEARS NEW
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 553 353 to 1038% in 0
@SARAH spot 0.534 229 336 AND SARAH faces left
@HANNAH spot 0.561 155 329 AND HANNAH faces right
&SARAH is idle_sad
@overlay 6308541332979712_TEARS NEW shifts to 222 339
@overlay 6308541332979712_TEARS NEW scales to 0.030 0.030
everything seems fine but i can’t see the overlay in the previewer, it’s not there :woman_shrugging:
i don’t know what to do, please help me

I’m pretty sure you can only see the overlays in the in-app tester/previewer.


#3

I think that’s correct


#4

I’m always using Web Preview to test my overlays.
Have you tried reloading page? It happens to me sometimes as well but usually, this helps.

Try adding the overlay like this:

INT. COLLEGE BATHROOM - DAY with TEARS NEW to 0.030 222 339 in zone 2

And remove those lines with the shift&scale commands then see if it pops up in the previewer.

#8

INT. COLLEGE BATHROOM - DAY with TEARS NEW to 0.030 0.030 222 339 in zone 2

oh god thank you so much you literally saved my life :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

Yeah, you need to write before in what zone the overlay is, but, if you shift (like, if you want the tears to drop) you need to write in what zone, like this:

@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in s in zone #
