Hey Guys. I made an overlay and want it to rotate on the spot, But when I add the overlay rotation, it moves for a different spot and starts rotating. Does anyone know why this is happening? Help me please!
Here is how i did it: @overlay MAGICGOLD create @overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD shifts to 109 326 in zone 1 @overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD scales to 0.496 0.496 @overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD moves to layer -1 @overlay MAGICGOLD opacity 1 @overlay MAGICGOLD rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2
So click preview on your episode portal if your using a laptop/computor and then click “show helper” then “spot Directing” and then to “change overlay”. You’ll then be able to move your overlay position to the place you want it and change your original copy of the overlay thats on your script to the new one that you got on your preview. All you have to do is to click copy, underneath the episode preview which would copy all of the overlay information and all you have to then is just paste it onto your script.
I would suggest to first set your overlay’s anchor point in the beginning and then it’s shifts code before animating it, that’s why it’s jumping. By default the anchor point is 0 0, so when you’re animating it with 0.5 0.5 it’s going to jump where it is, and move the overlay to be in the center of a 0 0 anchor point.
So something like this instead:
&overlay MAGICGOLD create
&overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD shifts to 109 326 in zone 1 #here you will have to change the shifts coordinates
&overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD scales to 0.496 0.496
&overlay 5999323387723776_MAGICGOLD moves to layer -1
&overlay MAGICGOLD opacity 1
&overlay MAGICGOLD rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 #this is setting the anchor point to be at 0.5 0.5 so it won’t shift when it spins.
@pause for 0.1 @overlay MAGICGOLD rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2
Press save and preview and then at that NARR Pause, re-spot your overlay to where you want it to be and then remove the NARR dialogue.
