Main Overlay Commands
@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y
@overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to X Y
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity X
@overlay OVERLAYNAME to layer #
@overlay OVERLAYNAME rotates ANGLE ANCHOR POINT
@overlay OVERLAYNAME clear

It depends what you want your overlay to do.

Change size? @overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to X Y

Move? @overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y

Transparency? @overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity X

Be in front or behind other characters or overlays? @overlay OVERLAYNAME to layer #

Rotate? @overlay OVERLAYNAME rotates ANGLE ANCHOR POINT

Do you want to animate the syringe?

Wait… So it’s like this for after u get the overlay in?

@OVERLAYNAME opacity 0
@OVERLAYNAME (position coordnates)

To move it it goes like

@OVERLAYNAME opacity 1
@OVERLAYNAME (coordnates)

Right?

Yes, so your overlay will fade in and move in 2 seconds. If you want to change the time, add “in S” where S in the number of seconds - eg @overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 5.

Remember to add overlay before the name of your overlay.
@overlay OVERLAYNAME

you need to write overlay after the @ and then whatver name you gave your overlay…

Example lets say my overlay is a heart and i name it LOVE then it would be written like this

@overlay LOVE

so when writing in your script always use

@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to X Y
@overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to X Y
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity X
@overlay OVERLAYNAME to layer #
@overlay OVERLAYNAME rotates ANGLE ANCHOR POINT
@overlay OVERLAYNAME clear

and to make sure that you are able to see your overlay and thats its not invisible always make sure to set opacity at 1

so once again going to my example

@overlay LOVE create
@overlay LOVE shifts to X Y
@overlay LOVE scales to X Y
@overlay LOVE opacity 1
@overlay LOVE to layer #
@overlay LOVE rotates ANGLE ANCHOR POINT
@overlay LOVE clear
