Layering overlays please help?


#1

Hi guys, I am currently writing a Halloween scene for one of my stories and in it I have some themed overlays (Pumpkins, gravestones etc), however, I can’t figure out how to get my character to walk past them without the overlays appearing to be on top of her. Is there a way to layer this so it doesn’t happen?

You want to put the overlays in a further back layer in the scene and her further forward layer.

ie.
INT. HAUNTED HOUSE - NIGHT with PUMPKIN to 1.000 100 100 in zone 1 at layer -2
@CHARACTER spot 1.280 100 100 in zone 1 at layer 1

OR

INT. HAUNTED HOUSE - NIGHT with PUMPKIN to 1.000 100 100 in zone 1 at layer -2
&CHARACTER stands screen center
@CHARACTER moves to layer 1

Thanks, I’ll try this in the morning, about to go to sleep now :blush: xx

I just tried it, it worked, thank you so much, I didn’t know you could use negative numbers to layer things :smiley:

Glad this got resolved. In the future @MissSarahG1 all scripting questions belong in the Directing Help & Tips section :slight_smile: Closing :v:t2:
