I'm having an issue with my overlays

First off, I’m sorry the title is very vague because I honestly didn’t know how to explain it with only a few words (English is my second language).

Basically, my issue is that my overlays first show up in their original form, and THEN the way I’ve placed them. I’ve added the screenshots below so you can understand better. I hope someone can help me with this, I’ve been dealing with this for 2 days, and can’t seem to solve it.

Thank you very much in advance!

There is a second between these two snaps.

And this is the coding.

These are really nice overlays wow o:

Anyway, this happens because when you write BACKGROUND with OVERLAY (You need to specify the coordinates the overlay moves to) and also because the overlay shifts only after the transition.

This is another way of doing it too:

INT. BACKGROUND

&overlay OVERLAY NAME create
&overlay OVERLAY NAME shifts to 100 100
&overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1

@transition fade in black 1

I’ve made up some numbers so just replace them accordingly :ok_woman:t2:

Yessss it worked!! I’m so happy right now lol. Thank you so much Ms Rachel! <3

Np :ok_woman:t2:
