Layer background

#1

I need help figuring out how to put my character in the bathtub. I see everyone do it and I can’t figure out what layer it is in. PLEASE HELP!!!


#2

Can you send the script you are using?


#3


#4

Well you aren’t suppose to layer the characters though


#5

I think that’s an overlay not in the art catalog. I suggest downloading a bathroom background, and overlay.


#6

Yeah, it’s just so hard to find a nice bathrub overlay :pensive:


#7

When I want it in the bathtub? Then what do I do?


#8

You can still layer the characters. Considering the fact that layer 2 isn’t a high layer, I’d expect the character to be below the bathtub overlay if there was one in that specific scene.


#9

You can try going to Instagram accounts. (@christy_lovepisode has one, I think @alexa_episode has one as well.)


#10

So if you upload your own overlay bathtub then you can layer the characters you want it to be


#11

Do something like:
INT. BATHROOM - DAY with BATHTUB at layer 3
@CHARACTER spot 1.000 000 000 in zone 1 at layer 2


#12

Okay, thanks.


#13

Eh that won’t be a perfect combination since is in the middle of the bathroom, Try uploading you’re own bathroom background that will fit perfectly with the bathtub :ok_hand:


#14

INT. ICE BATH BATHROOM - NIGHT with INT. ICE BATH BATHROOM - NIGHT in zone 1 at layer 2
@CHARACTER1 stands screen center in zone 1 at layer 1

:slight_smile: The background is the name of the overlay


#15

OKAY THANK YOU :grin:


#16

Oh yeah since you add another overlay with a background that has an overlay the background that has the overlay will be removed


#17

It’s the same with all of Episode’s own backgrounds that have integrated overlays, to change the layer of the overlay you use the name of the background, it doesn’t remove anything.


#18

It didn’t work, but I’ll try again.


#19

No, when you add an overlay with a background that already contains an overlay the overlay will be removed from that background not the whole thing


#20

No you need to add your own overlay
