Overlay directing and skills!

Hello guys! I was wondering can someone help with the overlay directing because I have a little problem with it. The OL won’t be in the place that should be when a scene is opening. So it will be helpful if someone can help me! Thank you! :sweat_smile: :blob_hearts:

Did you figure it out or do you still need help?

It’s basically this. I don’t know how to send it to you as a document sorry.

What overlay are you having trouble with? Or is it all of them? :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yes all of them

Try this:

INT. PURPLE SPARE with TABLE BOOTH to 1.000 -6 -5 in zone 1 with MILKSHAKE CHERRY to 0.208 75 69 in zone 1 with PINK MILKSHAKE to 0.226 139 61 in zone 1

Let me know if it works! :blob_hearts:

No it doesn’t

Is there an error message or something? The coding for it is right, so I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be previewing. Maybe try refreshing the screen and previewing it? You’re in zone 1, too, right?

It says that the background doesn’t exist and yes I am on zone 1

I will try again tho

Did you spell the background name correctly?

Yes

Is there any way you can send me a screenshot of your script?

The highlighted one

I did it! It’s okay

Did you code it right?
Example:
(PLACE) with (OVERLAY) to x, y, z in zone 1, 2, 3
And when you open the scene you click on “spot directing” and “change overlay” and you place it wherever you want! After you do that there will be some coding under the window with your story. Then you just have to write where you want to put it in your script!
Example:
EXT. DRIVEWAY with CAR to 0.883 74 150 in zone 1

Hope this helped! :heart:
