My overlay won't appear!


#1

there’s no error at all, but my overlay won’t show up.
it’s on the web previewer btw.


#2

If you’re using the create command, you need to add the scale, shift, and opacity commands as well to make the overlay appear. You also need to add the correct zone to the shift command


#3

i’m not.
but I already added scale and shift to my overlay…

What does your script look like


#5

INT. AIRPORT - NIGHT with JFK AIRPORT to 0.253 52 16
&overlay JFK AIRPORT opacity 0 in 0
&zoom on 494 329 to 149% in 0
&cut to zone 2
&ALICE spot 1.208 116 4 and ALICE faces right and ALICE is idle_terrified
&ALEKSANDRA stands upscreen right and ALEKSANDRA faces left and ALEKSANDRA is idle_happy
@transition fade in white 5
@overlay JFK AIRPORT opacity 1 in 2
@pause for 1
@overlay JFK AIRPORT opacity 0 in 2


#6

You need to add the zone number to your overlay since you cut to zone 2

INT. AIRPORT - NIGHT with JFK AIRPORT to 0.253 52 16 in zone 2
