Overlay help again πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ


#1

I’m trying to add a overlay but it won’t show up

BACKGROUND
@overlay OVERLAYNAME create


#2

You could do BACKGROUND with OVERLAY
If you create it after you’ll need
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE create
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE shifts to 0 0
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE scales to 1.000 1.000
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE to layer 3
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE opacity 1 in 0

It could be off screen too if you didn’t spot it


#3

I state all of that but overlays in each my story are either not in the right place or absent at all


#4

make sure you add a zone number as well to shifts to command


#5

Even in zone 1 nothing. I’ve checked it
What else can it be?


#6

Can you show your code?


#7

INT. BRISTOLS DORM ROOM EMPTY - NIGHT
&overlay CRIB PINK create
&overlay CRIB PINK shifts to 20 25
&overlay CRIB PINK scales to 0.63 0.63
@FMC spot .87 265 220


#8

you forgot opacity


#9

Is default not 1?


#10

when you creating your overlay in the scene you need to add opacity, if you adding your overlay to the background you don’t need to

INT. BRISTOLS DORM ROOM EMPTY - NIGHT
&overlay CRIB PINK create
&overlay CRIB PINK shifts to 20 25
&overlay CRIB PINK scales to 0.63 0.63
&overlay CRIB PINK opacity 1 in 0
