Need help with a bar counter overlay


#1

In a scene I have two characters in front of a counter and one behind, but I can’t get it to work. How do I position the overlay and the characters?


#2

You have to use layers…

@CHARACTER (the one BEHIND the overlay) moves to layer -3
The overlay at layer -2

@OTHER CHARACTER1 moves to layer 1
@OTHER CHARACTER2 moves to layer 2


#3

The character isn’t staying behind the overlay


#4

Now I’m confused, lol.

You need to place the overlay at a layer.
BACKGROUND with OVERLAY at layer 1

Then place the character behind the bar at layer 0 and the characters in front of the bar at layer 2

Oh fml. I’m sorry.
and thanks Elise, lol.

This is what I have
INT. BAR - DAY with BAR COUNTER at layer 1
@JASON moves to layer 0
@APHRODITE moves to layer 2
@JESSE moves to layer 2

Jason is supposed to be behind the counter but won’t stay behind the overlay

Try spotting him too

I got mine from @smg.episode, but I think she closed her drive with the documents. You could try @alexa_episode
