I'm using "INT. Bakery NO OL - Day" What should i use as my overlay?


#1

Anybody?


#2

INT. BAKERY NO OL - DAY does not have the overlay, which is what that “NO OL” means (No Overlay)

If you want to have the background with the overlay, use the background INT. BAKERY - DAY


#3

Okay can you like give me a overlay for that one ? like when for example

Example:
@CHAR walks to screen center in zone 3 AND pan to zone 3 in 4

And then it’s black right there how can i make it not black?


#4

The overlay is attached to the background. That background is only 2 zones, there is no zone 3 which is why you see black.


#5

Another question? How do i place one of my characters behind the counter?


#6

They will be placed behind the counter automatically, just place them wherever you want them on the screen.


#7

Can you show an example ?


#8

Just use @CHARACTER stands screen center or whatever position you want them in.


#9

Can you name me the positions? Sorry for asking too many questions i’m new to writing
