hey everyone! so I used Joseph Evans’ car script template and @Dara.Amarie’s looping background script template and I tried to put them together and (luckily) I didn’t get any errors. But still, the overlay isn’t looping. can anyone help me please?
#You forgot to create the duplicate overlay LOOP BG_2 and make it visible
EXT. BLUE DAY with LOOP BG to 1.625 0 0 in zone 1 at layer -5 with CAR ANGLE BROWN to layer 4
&overlay LOOP BG_2 create from LOOP BG and overlay LOOP BG_2 opacity 1 in 0
&overlay LOOP BG_2 scales to 1.625 1.625 in 0 and overlay LOOP BG_2 shifts to 0 0 in zone 2 in 0 and overlay LOOP BG_2 to layer -6
#bla bla bla…
#Recommend you layer everything from overlays to characters in your scene.
&ASHLEY spot 0.911 190 60 in zone 1 at layer 2 AND ASHLEY faces right AND ASHLEY is idle_book_open_neutral_loop
#Also your overlay needs to follow this:
“The coding I use to loop backgrounds uses 3-zone backgrounds only, and the overlay image size must be 1183 (width) x 700 (length) in order for the templates down below to work correctly.” - Dara
“Using your own 3-zone background: If you want to use your own 3-zone background to loop, make sure that the side ends of the image match each other so that the image can loop smoothly.” - Dara
