I need help with a custom overlay


#1

I’m having trouble with custom overlays. The custom overlays I have is called “ICICLE”. I am in zone 2. The overlay shows up in the bottom left corner when I put this:

EXT. NYC CITY STREET - DAY with ICICLE in zone 2

I want the overlay to be in a more specific place. It’s not zoomed in. Sorry for the long code, but here is the scene and characters that I want with the overlay:

EXT. NYC CITY STREET - DAY
@ALEX changes into alexhero
@LUCAS changes into lucashero
@CONNOR changes into connorhero
@NICK changes into nickhero
@cut to zone 2
@ICE COLD spot 0.347 240 542
@ICE COLD faces left
@KYLE spot 0.488 80 552
@KYLE faces right
@ALEX spot 0.713 46 251
@ALEX faces right
@NICK spot 0.433 116 414
@NICK faces right
@LUCAS spot 0.684 271 302
@LUCAS faces left
@CONNOR spot 0.532 176 365
@CONNOR faces right

@overlay ICICLE create
@overlay ICICLE shifts to 220 337 in zone 2
@overlay ICICLE scales to 0.515 0.515

Please help me. Thanks! :slight_smile:

So how I place my overlays when I want it starting in a scene would be how you first did it, but I also add the spot placements so it doesn’t go in the bottom left corner:

EXT. NYC CITY STREET - DAY with ICICLE in zone 2
&overlay ICICLE shifts to 220 337 in zone 2
&overlay ICICLE scales to 0.515 0.515
