I'm Having Trouble With The Loop Command

communication

#1

I’ve been having trouble creating an opening/warning scene for my story. I’m trying to use multiple overlays and such, and it’s coming up with an error saying loop command can only be used with overlay animation commands. The problem is, I’m not using an loop commands in that line of coding. For example: INT. R WARNING - DAY with HONEY HAND to 1.000 79 -118 at layer 4 with MAGIC EFFECT 16 to 0.792 92 428 at layer 3 with WARNING1 to 1.000 51 399 at layer 1 with WARNING2 to 1.000 148 399 at layer 1 with WARNING3 to 1.000 -45 399 at layer 1 with WARNING MESSAGE at layer 7. This is the line of coding I’m using. It’s saying that I’m using the loop command when I’m clearly not. Not sure if this is a bug of some sort but I didn’t want to report it because I may just be being dumb. Please help me out! Thanks. :smiley:

Im not sure about this, as I haven’t tried using overlays in my story yet, as I just started with my intro. But you can go to this topic to get help, @RudeInception helps me out alot :heart:

Can you post a screenshot of what your script looks like with the error?

Whenever I click on the error, it highlights the first line. Is it because I’m doing something wrong in the following lines?

Can you copy and paste this whole part?

Hmmm… earlier I changed one of the lines that was ON loop from rotate to shift because I saw in another forum that looping infinite times while trying to rotate doesn’t work. The error message isn’t showing up anymore but I’d like to be able to rotate the overlay I want to while looping infinite times. So how do I do that?

INT. R WARNING - DAY with HONEY HAND to 1.000 79 -118 at layer 4 with MAGIC EFFECT 16 to 0.792 92 428 at layer 3 with WARNING1 to 1.000 51 399 at layer 1 with WARNING2 to 1.000 148 399 at layer 1 with WARNING3 to 1.000 -45 399 at layer 1 with WARNING MESSAGE at layer 7
&overlay MAGIC EFFECT 16 shifts to 92 440 in 4 using easeinout THEN overlay MAGIC EFFECT 16 opacity 0.7 in 1.5 loop INFINITE times
&overlay HONEY HAND shifts to 88 -113 in 1.65 using easeinout THEN overlay HONEY HAND shifts to 79 -118 in 1.45 using easeinout loop INFINITE times
&overlay WARNING1 shifts to -173 399 in 5 THEN overlay WARNING1 shifts to 554 399 in 0 loop INFINITE times
&overlay WARNING2 shifts to -270 399 in 5 THEN overlay WARNING2 shifts to 457 399 in 0 loop INFINITE times
&overlay WARNING3 shifts to -367 399 in 5 THEN overlay WARNING3 shifts to 264 399 in 0 loop INFINITE times

You have to rotate to 360 then reset it back to 0

@overlay OVERLAY rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in [time] THEN overlay OVERLAY rotates 0 in 0 loop INFINITE times
