Layer issues with MC

So my MC is in layer 1 when they enter but once they stop they get pushed forward and are in front of the booth rather than behind it.

EXT. FAIR DAY - DAY

@overlay BOOTH create
@overlay BOOTH shifts to 0 0 in zone 1
@overlay BOOTH to layer 2
@overlay BOOTH opacity 1
@overlay BOOTH scales to 1.000 1.000

@CHAR3 stands screen center and CHAR3 faces left
@CHAR3 moves to layer 1

@FEM1 moves to layer 3
@FEM1 spot 1.280 76 13

&FEM1 is idle_rear and FEM1 faces left and CHAR3 is idle

Have you tried spot directing your MC offscreen then have them walk to where theyโ€™re onscreen? Try this:

@MC spot 1.280 400 0 in zone 1 at layer 1
@MC walks to spot 1.280 160 0

No I hadnโ€™t tried spot directing it.
Thank you very much that worked.
