Overlay and character help

mustread

#1

Okay, so I placed my overlay and characters just how I liked them, but when I preview my story it goes to how it was before, then switches back super quickly so how can an fix this?


#2

You need to add it to the background or do something like

@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in 0 in zone#
@overlay OVERLAY scales to % % in 0 in zone #


#3

I did add in with th background and I have the shifts and scales


#4

You nee to add the shifts and scales with the background to like

EXT. BLUE - DAY with OVERLAY to x y %


#5

thank you!! I’ll try that :slight_smile:


#6

I did

EXT. MOUNTAIN ROAD LOOP - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to —— and scales to —— it says it can only be mentioned once :frowning:


#7

Can you show me what you typed in the script?


#8

EXT. MOUNTAIN ROAD LOOP - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -477 -40 scales to 0.993 0.993


#9

Just type in this instead

EXT. MOUNTAIN ROAD LOOP - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER to -477 -40 0.993


#10

The overlay doesn’t show up at all.


#11

EXT. MOUNTAIN ROAD LOOP - DAY with CAR ANGLE SILVER to 0.993 -477 -40
