Overlay and stage view?

Ok, so every time I try to create an overlay an error comes up saying I need to use stage view?

Here’s my script, what am I doing wrong? And what the heck is a stage view?

@SARAH is lay_asleep_loop AND SARAH faces right AND SARAH spot 0.869 442 354
&zoom on 246 219 to 198% in 3
@JAY walks to spot 0.954 291 140 in 2 AND JAY does it while walk_rear
@JAY is idle_rear
@JAY is tinker_loop_rear
@overlay 6347842715648000_BLACK BLANKET create
@overlay 6347842715648000_BLACK BLANKET opacity 1 in 0

maybe try removing the number so try

@overlay BLACK BLANKET create
@overlay BLACK BLANKET opacity 1 in 0

I did that too, still didn’t work

try & instead of @

That did not work either :frowning:

so i was reading around the forum and someone had the same problem and suggested that probably “It is just a warning to tell you that the overlay may not be in the right zone and/or position.” so maybe that…i’ll keep trying to gather more info but if you figure it out let me know what the mistake was and how you fixed it

I read that too, but I didn’t really understand what it meant. So I tired adding the code to change the layer and zone, but it still didn’t work.

Maybe try with all the commands

@overlay OVERLAYNAME create**
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to 100 100 in zone # in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to 1.0 1.0 in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 0

I tried all the commands and I still get the warning. (I think episode hates me lol)

It’s may be not right…but try adding overlay to your background line like
BACKGROUND with OVERLAY_NAME and remove the line of create overlay

It doesn’t appear even when I add it to the background name. (Episode. Hates. Me. )

I think it’s the order in which you put this command.
@SARAH spot 0.869 442 354 AND SARAH is lay_asleep_loop AND SARAH faces right

Sorry for tagging you, Sarah.

Ok, I changed the order, but it still doesn’t work. I get that dumb error message every time :(((((

It started working all of a sudden! Thank you!
