In this part get rid of the “in zone 3”

The issue is because you are using the shifts command without adding the zone to these commands. If you don’t specify the zone with the shift command, the overlays default to zone 1.

But since you already added the overlay with the background name, you can just add the scale and shift coordinates there too like this;

EXT. CAFE AND SMOOTHIES with SMOOTHIE CUP to 1.0 131 128 in zone 3 with TEA CAFE CUP to 1.0 90 148 in zone 3 with PANCAKES in zone 3
