I need help with advanced directing

Does anyone know how to make an overlay shift but while it’s rotating? I’ve been trying to do it for an hour now…
I’m trying to make the blue cup hit the guys head but while it’s rotating continuously.


and I’ve tried following a overlay thread but it’s not working >:/

Hey! You should move the overlay and copy paste it’s position every time but in between those you should use @pause for a beat. (It’s for moving overlay to show like it was thrown… I don’t exactly know what you meant by rotating.)
For example:

@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 74 131
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT scales to 0.442 0.442
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 62 124
@pause for 1
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 46 111
@pause for 1
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 27 81
@pause for 1
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 18 63
@pause for 1
@overlay 6192476302737408_PAPER CRAFT shifts to 13 20

&overlay CUP shifts to x y in zone # in S
&overlay CUP rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in S

This is your big standard ‘throwing object’ animation. I would advise to rotate the overlay first, put @pause for 1000 afterwards to pause your script while you move the cup around on the preview. After you’ve rotated it, 9 times out of 10 it will shift to a different spot (this is very normal don’t panic!) then put the spots of the cup where you want it to end up. Repeat for each movement/rotation. Keep testing, it takes a lot of patience!
