I need help a.s.a.p


#1

You need to specify the layers for each character AND the overlay. Also, you may want to change the opacity of the overlay.

Example:
INT. BACKGROUND with OVERLAY to xx xx xx in zone 1 at layer 2
&DOUBLE spot xx xxx xx in zone 1 at layer 1 AND DOUBLE is xxxx
&CHARACTER spot xx xxx in zone 1 at layer 3 AND CHARACTER is xx
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 0.5 in 0


#3

let me try it and tell you


#4

ok it worked but i want and the character to fade like she is a reflection


#5

If you set the opacity for the overlay, the character that is behind the overlay should aready look “faded”. Did you try this command already?:
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 0.5 in 0


#6

yeah and its like that :confused:


#7

Mind if I see your script?
Also, by any chance are your characters placed something like this?:
@DOUBLE spot 1.280 50 0 in zone 1 at layer 1
@CHARACTER spot 1.280 50 0 in zone 1 at layer 3

If that’s the case, it possible that you can’t see the faded effect because you placed CHARACTER right on top of the double, try moving one of them to the side so that they are not on top of each other.

Also, I noticed there was no space between “INT.” and “BEDROOM”, maybe that was the issue?
