I am a bit confused at the moment as I don’t know which overlay to use for my mirror in the background INT.BATHROOM - DAY for the character reflection? I’ve seen both of these and don’t know which one to actually put into my script.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

U can use the upper one if u are zoomed in on that mirror part only…but if you want full background with the reflection of character in mirror , go with second one…as it will cover the legs of mirror character
I am bad at explaining
You can use both! Overlay 1 will need to be opacity 0.5 (for example) and overlay 2 will need to be infront of it
Hello! Thanks for this, haha. You’re a lifesaver! Xx
Hey! Thanks for replying, it really helped. And don’t worry, I understand what you mean.

And I found da script for it…(because I had nothing to do)
It’s pretty simple, really.
So you will need:
A duplicate character of the main character
A mirror overlay
First, add the mirror overlay to the scene.
INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY with MIRROR OVERLAY in zone #
For more information on how to add overlays to your scene,
Second, add the main character (MC) and the duplicate (DC) to the scene.
INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY with MIRROR OVERLAY
@MC spot % x y in zone #
@DC spot % x y in zone #
For more information on ho…
No problem! I’ve drafted a basic script below!
INT. BATHROOM - DAY
&overlay OVERLAY1 moves to layer 1
&overlay OVERLAY1 opacity 0.5 in 0
&overlay OVERLAY2 moves to layer 2
&overlay OVERLAY2 opacity 1 in 0
@CHAR1 moves to layer 0
@CHAR2 moves to layer 3
@CHAR1 would be behind the mirror (the reflection)
@CHAR2 would be in front of the mirror and facing rear
All you would need to do is spot direct the overlays and characters to your preference. Hope this helps!
