I’m trying to move my overlay with my character. Like it’s a scene where I’m using Bloodstain as overlay on the clothes. I want it to move with the character while she’s running, I mean I want the stain to remain on her clothes while she’s running.
I’ve tried to use this code
&overlay BLOODSTAIN shifts to x y
&overlay BLOODSTAIN scales to a b @overlay BLOODSTAIN opacity 1
but it doesn’t work for me. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
It’s not actually creating a problem right now but I’ll keep that in mind because things don’t work the same way for me everytime . I’m just struggling with the overlay to move following the Character’s movement and I found it’s too much work 🤦
Try to put the opacity in front of the moving command so you can see it move!
PUT BACKGROUND HERE
&zoom (whatever your zoom is)
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE create
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE to layer WHATEVER LAYER YOU PUT (make sure it’s in front of the character)
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE +FIRST DESTINATION BEFORE IT MOVES shifts to PLACE IT SHIFTS
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE+FIRST DESTINATION BEFORE IT MOVES scales to SIZE IT SCALES
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE opacity 1 in 0
(And then plot your character, and any other overlays or background characters)
(And then you have to do sum like:)
@pause for a beat
&CHARACTER walks to spot PUT DETAILS HERE in WHATEVER TIME YOU WANT and CHARACTER faces PUT LEFT OR RIGHT and CHARACTER does it while PUT ANIMATION HERE
&overlay PUT OVERLAY HERE shifts to PUT COORDINATES HERE in PUT TIME HERE
(Make sure to put a piece of coding like “@pause for WHATEVER AMOUNT OF TIME CHARACTER IS RUNNING FOR AND OVERLAY IS MOVING TO”)
I mean, I hope this helps! Feel free to pm me in you have any questions <3
