Ink Overlays Not Working


#1

In my script I’m adding overlays (throughout the script and not in the title), and trying to move them up and down, side by side etc. Here’s an example of a part of my script:

    WILSON (eyeroll)
Don't worry, Dr. Chen.

    WILSON (talk_arms_crossed)
You all know my name...

&zoom on 320 414 to 478% in 0
&CHEN faces left
@overlay TAUPEPEACE create
@overlay TAUPEPEACE shifts to -57 105
@overlay TAUPEPEACE scales to 0.486 0.486
@overlay TAUPEPEACE opacity 1

    KALABAI
(Ah... I wasn't listening. Should I ask again? Probably.)

@overlay TAUPEPEACE shifts to -57 168 in 2
@zoom on 486 332 to 478% in 0.2
@pause for 3
@zoom on 320 414 to 478% in 0.2
&CHEN faces right AND CHEN is shush
&overlay TAUPEPEACE shifts to -57 105 in 0.4

    KALABAI
(Nope.)

&overlay TAUPEPEACE opacity 0
&zoom on 640 312 to 282% in 0


*ignore this line above. This scene takes place in Zone 2. For some reason when I’m previewing my script in the portal the overlay is in a completely different position than what I’ve coded. Does anyone know why this is?? I don’t usually have these problems, but this scene is really testing my limits here…

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.


#2

isnt the opacity suppose to be 1 in 0 not just 1


#3

Remove the timer from the initial overlay commands:

@overlay TAUPEPEACE create
@overlay TAUPEPEACE shifts to -57 105 in 0
@overlay TAUPEPEACE scales to 0.486 0.486 in 0
@overlay TAUPEPEACE opacity 1 in 0


#4

If the scene takes place in zone 2, then you need to specify the zone for the shifting commands.

@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in zone # in [time]
