The EXT. OUTDOOR STREET LOOP - NIGHT background doesn’t loop and I’ve heard that the background is broken. So I made this background into an overlay but I can’t figure out how to make it loop continuously. It goes through and then skips to the beginning again instead of going through smoothly. I have looked at many answers to these questions on the forum but none of them work for me. Please help!
dosent work, never have, never will, its never been a looping background.
anyway here is the overlay and code I used, its a little bit glitchy though.
INT. BLUE - DAY with OUTDOOR STREET LOOP to 2.446 -682 0
@overlay OUTDOOR STREET LOOP moves to layer -30
&overlay OUTDOOR STREET LOOP shifts to 0 0 in 6 THEN overlay OUTDOOR STREET LOOP shifts to -682 0 in 0 loop infinite times
Thanks! I tried that before but that code didn’t work for me. I don’t know why or what I did wrong. How do I use it correctly?
Thank you! The one that you sent, it skips back to the beginning instead of going through it smoothly. How do I do the same thing but have it without the glitchy look?
(Sorry. I realized that I replied to it in general and not to your post)
dont know, I use that. I would have send one there didnt glitch, if I knew how to do that.
You have to be sure that your images of the overlay has the exact same size!
I actually figured it out! I used the link you gave me and did some math. I made a different version.
This is my code:
EXT. BLUE - DAY with STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP to 1.625 0 0 in zone 1 at layer -5
&overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 create from STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP and overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 opacity 1 in 0
&overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 scales to 1.625 1.625 in 0 and overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 shifts to 275 0 in zone 2 in 0 and overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 to layer -6
&overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 shifts to -595 0 in 8 THEN overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP2 shifts to 275 0 in zone 2 in 0 loop INFINITE times
@overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP shifts to -595 0 in 4
&overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP shifts to 275 0 in zone 2 in 0 THEN overlay STORE ALLEYWAY NIGHT_LOOP shifts to -595 0 in 8 loop INFINITE times
But it wouldn’t work for other people I guess because of the size.
So how do you know what size you downloaded the overlay?
However, the math I did to figure it out should work for everyone:
The math would just be with different numbers depending on the size of the overlay.
Hahaha, and one say you don’t need math after school anymore
I’m glad it finally worked!
