Overlay code not working! :<

Hi, for some reason my overlay code is not working. It keeps showing Warning in the side bar. This is the code:
INT. LOUNGE TROPICAL HOTEL EST - NIGHT
@cut to zone 2
@overlay INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY create
@overlay INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY shifts to 314 57 in zone 1
@overlay INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY scales to 0.910 0.910
@overlay INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY moves to layer 2
@overlay INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY opacity 1
&ODELLE spot 0.948 70 121 in zone 2 and ODELLE moves to layer 1 and ODELLE faces right and ODELLE is deepbreath

Does anyone know what’s wrong? Thanks!

It is probably because there is a AND in your overlay name. Have you tried adding it directly to your background?

You would write this:

INT. LOUNGE TROPICAL HOTEL EST - NIGHT with INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY to 0.910 314 57 in zone 1 at layer 2

Hey rather than creating it, you could write
INT. LOUNGE TROPICAL HOTEL EST - NIGHT with INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY
Also try to exchange all those @ with &.
It works for me.

Try this please?

The overlay will show, but it’s still at the wrong positioning and the coordinates don’t change even after I’ve changed the coordinates of the spot directing. :frowning:

Okay, what’s the overlay number showing in the box below preview box.
Try copying and pasting that.

Yep, it still doesn’t work. Maybe it’s an issue w the overlay itself?

This should work. If not, then you might need to change the overlay name. :point_down:

INT. LOUNGE TROPICAL HOTEL EST - NIGHT with INT. KITCHEN ECONOMY BRICK RED THEME SEA TABLE AND ISLAND - DAY to 0.910 314 57 in zone 1 at layer 2

&cut to zone 2

&ODELLE spot 0.948 70 121 in zone 2 and ODELLE moves to layer 1 and ODELLE faces right and ODELLE is deepbreath
