Need help with throwing an overlay!

Okay, so i thought i coded this correctly, the overlay KNIFE is an actual knife in which i am trying to throw at another character, the opacity, scales, shifts and all are correct but when i preview it nothing comes up. Also on the one time it came up when MEL slap_face the knife was really delayed after it, but the idea was that MEL was throwing the knife at LAILA but its really delayed? Help…
This is my script and coding below.

@overlay KNIFE create
@overlay KNIFE opacity 1 in 0
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE shifts to 29 228 in zone 3 in 0
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE scales to 0.163 0.163
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE moves to layer 4
@MEL is slap_face
&overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE shifts to 160 259 in zone 3 in 2
&overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE scales to 0.163 0.163
&overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE moves to layer 4
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE shifts to 194 114 in zone 3 in 0.5
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE scales to 0.178 0.178
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE moves to layer 34

@overlay CUT create
@overlay CUT opacity 1 in 0
@overlay 5545621362769920_CUT shifts to 166 273 in zone 3
@overlay 5545621362769920_CUT scales to 0.054 0.054
@overlay 5545621362769920_CUT moves to layer 3

@overlay HAND create
@overlay HAND opacity 1 in 0
@overlay 5545621362769920_HAND shifts to 128 210 in zone 3
@overlay 5545621362769920_HAND scales to 0.218 0.218
@overlay 5545621362769920_HAND moves to layer 35
@LAILA is slap_face_receive
@overlay 5545621362769920_KNIFE moves to layer 34
@zoom on 802 303 to 337% in 2 using easein

Okay, because I can’t view what’s going on, I’m going to give this a random shot lol. So let me know if this is complete crap or not… However based upon what I’m seeing, I would’ve coded it like this:

&overlay KNIFE create and overlay KNIFE opacity 1 in 0 and overlay KNIFE shifts to 29 228 in zone 3 in 0 and overlay KNIFE scales to 0.163 0.163 in 0 and overlay KNIFE moves to layer 4
&overlay CUT create and overlay CUT opacity 0 in 0 and overlay CUT shifts to 166 273 in zone 3 in 0 and overlay CUT scales to 0.054 0.054 in 0 and overlay CUT moves to layer 3
&overlay HAND create and overlay HAND opacity 0 in 0 and overlay HAND shifts to 128 210 in zone 3 in 0 and overlay HAND scales to 0.218 0.218 in 0 and overlay HAND moves to layer 35
@MEL is slap_face
@overlay KNIFE shifts to 160 259 in zone 3 in 2
&overlay CUT opacity 1 in 0
@overlay KNIFE shifts to 194 114 in zone 3 in 0.5 and overlay KNIFE scales to 0.178 0.178 in 0.5 and overlay KNIFE moves to layer 34
&LAILA is slap_face_recieve
@overlay HAND opacity 1 in 0
@zoom on 802 303 to 337% in 2 using easin

Well, it depends on what you’re trying to do… if you’re trying make it appear in one place, then what @dishsoap said was right, but if you’re trying to make it move to one place, then do this:

#START POINT
@overlay OVERLAY NAME is wherever you already have it
@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1
@overlay OVERLAY NAME shifts to blah

#END POINT
@overlay OVERLAY NAME wherever you want it
@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1
@overlay OVERLAY NAME shifts to blah
