Need help w/ overlays

Hii! So I am coding my scene
this is the code:
INT. ENTRY WAY with hall doorway to 0.627 -21 44 at layer 3 with BROWN DOOR to 0. 452 39 145 at later 4
^ so basically this scene I have the door closed. But I’d like to have a new overlay that has the door open. But I’m not sure how to remove the first overlay so that my new overlay can come in. Can someone help me out ? Pls and thanks :white_heart::two_hearts:

To remove an overlay you would code it as:
@overlay OVERLAY NAME clear


ok thanks :slight_smile:

wait sorry to ask so when I do remove/overlay clear how would I code my overlay separately?
like do I still have to do overlay create and all that but can I still do like

BRW DOOR shifts to 0 0
then BRW DOOR scales to 1.000

and lastly BRW DOOR at layer 6

or am I wrong? :smiling_face_with_tear:

Since you included the overlay with the background all you need to do this remove/clear it with the command I posted a few minutes ago.

If you want to use the overlay again then I believe you’d have to type it out like you said. I’m not so sure since I never include my overlays with the background, but I’m 90% it’s correct :face_holding_back_tears:

Ah okay. I will try again. Thank you tho for your help :blush:

still need help so bump :smiling_face_with_tear:

What’s wrong ?

You are correct about this if you plan on using the ol later it’s best to just put the opacity to where it can’t be seen that’s how I normally do it .

Opacity code :

&overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity % in S
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity % in S

Example being
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 3
(It will be at 100% opacity in 3 seconds )

For it to disappear you can do something like
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 0 in 2
(Meaning it will fade away to not being seeable in 2 seconds )

(If u still need help @maandy feel free to pm abt it :blob_hearts: !)

Yeah is it okay if I can pm you pls and thanks?:two_hearts:
