Overlay and layers


#1

I want to place my characters on either side of a table in a cafe.
I want Lexie behind the overlay and Graham in front of it so I can get an over the shoulder shot from his angle.
Please help, here’s what I have so far:

INT. CAKE SHOP OL - DAY with TABLE CAFE
@overlay moves to layer 0
@GRAHAM changes into Graham casual 2
@LEXIE changes into Lexie casual 2
&GRAHAM moves to layer 2
&LEXIE moves to layer 1
@LEXIE stands screen center
@GRAHAM stands screen left AND GRAHAM is rear

Read my guide :slight_smile:

What’s wrong with your script:

This command is wrong:
@overlay moves to layer 0

You have to use either:
INT. CAKE SHOP OL - DAY with TABLE CAFE at layer 0
or
@overlay TABLE CAFE to layer 0

The character needs to be moved to layers with the placement, not before it

&LEXIE stands screen center AND LEXIE moves to layer 1
&GRAHAM stands screen left AND GRAHAM is rear AND GRAHAM moves to layer 2
