Need help with an overlay

So I’m having a bit of trouble with an overlay.

INT. IN BED with DUVET

@overlay 4673709803831296_DUVET shifts to -348 -70
@overlay 4673709803831296_DUVET scales to 3.628 3.628

This is what the script originally looked like and it’s fine in the previewer in the portal but when I tested it on the app, the screen flashed before transitioning in.

I’ve read loads of things in the forums that say you can include it all in one line, which I did.

INT. IN BED with DUVET to 3.628 3.628

But then I get the error "Wrong syntax of specifying coordinates. Try “to SCALE X Y”. For example “to 1.0 100 100”.

So I’m a little bit stuck.

Any help would be appreciated :grin:

So when you’re adding overlays with the background, you’ll need to add in the size and coordinates like when you spot direct:

BACKGROUND with OVERLAY_NAME S X Y

S = size
X = X axis
Y = Y axis

So you’re code should look like this:

INT. IN BED with DUVET to 3.628 -348 -70

Thank you so much, I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ve been doing wrong for the past hour or so :tired_face: :sweat_smile:
