Is it possible for a looping background to change the direction?

Hi guys I have all my cars overlay faces left so is it possible to change the direction of a background loop or do I have to change all of them?

If you mean the looping backgrounds provided by episode, then I believe there is no way to speed them up or change direction (but I can be wrong, although I have never seen something like this).
In that case, you’ll need to change the side or direction of the car overlays, use a different looping background, or use the custom overlay looping to make the “background” loop in the desired speed and direction.

I uploaded them facing left how can I make them face the other way?

If I remember correctly you need to add - to the scale of overlay :thinking:
@overlay XYZ scales to -1.000 1.000

where do I put it? before pasting the overlay or directly in the coding?

for example (you’ll have different numbers when you change the spotting and size of course)

INT. BACKGROUND with XYZ at layer 2
&overlay XYZ scales to -1.000 1.000 and overlay XYZ shifts to 57 210 in zone 1

ok let me try it

EXT. METROPOLIS CITY STREET LOOPING - DAY

&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV shifts to 312 28 in zone 1
&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV scales to -1.000 1.000
&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV moves to layer 1

&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV shifts to -245 15 in zone 1 in 3
&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV scales to 1.000 1.000
&overlay 4920764841525248_SUV moves to layer 1

can you help me with the coding here, please?

@transition fade in 1
@overlay 4920764841525248_SUV shifts to -245 15 in zone 1 in 3

OMG! it’s working but the car is left behind as the background is still looping :thinking: :thinking:
I don’t know why :woman_facepalming:

Then, instead of moving the car overlay, simply leave it in place; the looping background will loop, and that will be enough for illusion.

i tested it on my overlays, it would be like this.
EXT. METROPOLIS CITY STREET LOOPING - DAY with SUV at layer 2
&overlay SUV shifts to 25 0 in zone 2 and overlay SUV scales to -0.357 0.357

I have a headache :woman_facepalming:
I tried the code you gave me and it was working well but the size of the car was too small so I changed it and the car just disappeared

It was just an example on my overlay; like I said, I don’t have your overlays, so I don’t know the size of them. You probably need to change the spot directing (position) for overlay and it will be on the screen again.

SUV
it’s that one

To make it easier for you, just invert the overlay image and upload that new overlay.

EDIT: Here just upload this
