So, I’m trying to change the layers of my overlays, but they just stay the same. For example, it’ll first start at layer 24 and when I code it to move to layer 20 or so on, it just stays at 24. Does anyone know what causes this and what the fix may be?
Are you sure that there is no mistake in yourscode?
I don’t believe so, but here’s my script.
&zoom on 640 218 to 243% in 0
@cut to zone 2
@overlay TALKSHOW TV create
@overlay TALKSHOW TV opacity 1 in 0
@overlay 5700563244679168_TALKSHOW TV shifts to 29 -79 in zone 1
@overlay 5700563244679168_TALKSHOW TV scales to 1.396 1.396
@DIVINE spot 0.741 260 174 in zone 2 and DIVINE faces left
@DIVINE changes into DIVINE_outfit1
@DIVINE changes hair into Medium Shoulder Curly
@overlay TS SCREEN BLANK create
@overlay TS SCREEN BLANK opacity 1 in 0
@overlay 5700563244679168_TS SCREEN BLANK shifts to 17 162 in zone 2
@overlay 5700563244679168_TS SCREEN BLANK scales to 1.470 1.470
@overlay DIWD create
@overlay DIWD opacity 0 in 0
@overlay 5700563244679168_DIWD shifts to 202 208 in zone 1
@overlay 5700563244679168_DIWD scales to 1.272 1.272
@overlay BREAKINGNEWS2 create
@overlay BREAKINGNEWS2 opacity 0 in 0
@overlay 5700563244679168_BREAKINGNEWS2 shifts to 25 168 in zone 2
@overlay 5700563244679168_BREAKINGNEWS2 scales to 0.277 0.277
@overlay TALKSHOW TV to layer 21
@overlay BREAKINGNEW2 to layer 20
@overlay DIWD to layer 21
@DIVINE moves to layer 22
@overlay TS SCREEN BLANK to layer 19
i always use @overlay name moves to layer X
i’m not sure if it makes a difference if you add “move” but you could try it
Hey I think you forgot to add “moves to layer” in the lines that have overlays as specified by @caitlindrewthis above so it should be:
@overlay TALKSHOW TV moves to layer 21
@overlay BREAKINGNEW2 moves to layer 20
@overlay DIWD moves to layer 21
@overlay TS SCREEN BLANK moves to layer 19
I hope that works.
Yes, as writers above, I always use @overlay OVERLAY moves to layer X
I don’t need to add anything but yeah like they said above “you missed the keyword 'moves”.
I had that problem awhile back when I previewed my story in the app. I looked over my script multiple times and couldn’t see any errors but it turned out that changing the layers in the app itself solved my problem. It might work for you?
You also don’t need to add “moves” for overlay commands, both “moves” and without “moves” work. Just in case you were doubting your coding.
Yes! That worked for me. Thank you!
Oh, goodie! And no problem.
