I'm having rotating problems with overlays

image
I’m trying to have my overlay character’s foot move back and forth, how do you rotate that?

What error are you getting?

Have you tried getting rid of the numbers before the overlay MYOVERLAY1 on lines 2,3,4

Edit: Just seen you comment under the picture. So is it that you want it to loop moving backwards and forwards?

So the rotating line that you have is:

@overlay MYAOVERLAY1 rotates 25 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1

To rotate it back to where it was:
@overlay MYAOVERLAY1 rotates -25 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1

Then move it as many times as you’d like.

Notes:

  • Consider adding them together, like: @overlay MYAOVERLAY1 rotates 25 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1 THEN overlay MYAOVERLAY1 rotates -25 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1
  • If it’s going to rotate a lot of times, consider using an & sign, so the dialogue continues and the readers don’t have to stare at the moving foot for too long haha.
  • If it has to move for the entire scene, afaik, Episode’s coding doesn’t support loop commands for overlay rotations, so you’ll just have to keep repeating the command over and over. It makes one long-ass line, but good directing can be annoying like that. :upside_down_face:
