# Is there a way to rotate overlays in place?

Can I rotate overlays in place? Like they will just spin around.

I did, I couldnâ€™t find something about it.

I tried 0.5 with 360 degrees, normally it has to spin around but it moves to somewhere else

EXT. EPISODE with PURPLE POWER to 1.000 255 -72 in zone 1 at layer 1
@pause for a beat
@overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2 THEN pause for a beat
@overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2 AND overlay PURPLE POWER rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2

I would try experimenting with the anchor point. That decides which â€śangleâ€ť your overlay rotates on
Maybe try:

@overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2 AND overlay PURPLE POWER rotates 360 anchor point 1 1 in 2

-OR-

@overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2 AND overlay PURPLE POWER rotates 360 anchor point 0 0 in 2

Sadly, itâ€™s not spinning itâ€™s moving

Try this:

EXT. EPISODE with PURPLE POWER to 1.000 255 -72 in zone 1 at layer 1
@pause for a beat
@overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2 THEN pause for a beat
&overlay PURPLE POWER shifts to 0 0 in 2
@overlay PURPLE POWER rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2

It moved to bottom left of the screen then rotated there

Well youâ€™re shifting to 0 0
Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s going to happen

I have to because my overlay is at the center of the screen

You want to move the overlay to the left and then spin? Orâ€¦?

I want overlay to be offscreen then move to screen center then spin around but itâ€™s impossible

No itâ€™s not. Letâ€™s figure it out.

Okay when you first put in the overlay, itâ€™s already offscreen?

Yes

Okay great now

You want it to move to the center.
Do you have the coordinates for that? (X Y)

Yes I made the overlay right in the screen so itâ€™s 0 0

Thatâ€™s not right. Iâ€™d check again.

The coordinates 0 0 will put the overlay at the bottom left of the screen
