Overlay help again πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

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

BACKGROUND
@overlay OVERLAYNAME create

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

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

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

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

Can you show your code?

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

you forgot opacity

Is default not 1?

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

OMG, it worked!
