So I have been told that it is not possible to layer weather effects, but I would really like to have it appear as though someone is looking out a window and seeing snow. (Something similar to how it looks below) Please let me know if you have any idea how I can do this, I would be so grateful!!!
“Nothing above the weather effect” seems like a no-exceptions coding rule.
You’d have to use an overlay for the snow instead, or multiple overlays, and have them loop.
If you’re truly a masochist, you can do this with every individual snowflake. But I’d personally make some overlays of white spots on a transparent canvas to have a continuous snowfall. Won’t look quite as perfect as the weather effect, but that’s what you’ve got.
Ohh I hadn’t thought of that thank you so much!!
Hey so I don’t actually know how to make overlays loop
I’d do it vaguely like Dara’s looping background—at least two overlays, #1 moves across the screen, then #2 moves across the screen while #1 is brought back up to the top, so one is always falling across the screen.
Very, very loosely, the code might look something like:
&overlay SNOW1 create AND overlay SNOW2 create
&overlay SNOW1 shifts to 0 600 in 0 AND overlay SNOW2 shifts to 0 1200 in 0
&overlay SNOW1 shifts to 0 -300 in 5 THEN overlay SNOW1 shifts to 0 600 in 0 loop INFINITE times
&overlay SNOW1 shifts to 0 -300 in 10 THEN overlay SNOW1 shifts to 0 1200 in 0 loop INFINITE times
^ idk how good that would look exactly, but the point is, one is always onscreen, so the reader can’t see the other jumping back up to the top of the screen.
Ok thank you so much!!
