INT. INTRO-DAY with THE with MEAN with GIRLS

@overlay 5837530735116288_THE shifts to 47 461 in zone 1
@overlay 5837530735116288_THE scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay 5837530735116288_MEAN shifts to 158 458 in zone 1
@overlay 5837530735116288_MEAN scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay 5837530735116288_GIRLS shifts to 103 402 in zone 1
@overlay 5837530735116288_GIRLS scales to 1.000 1.000

and when i put any other code in, it did absolutely nothing

The Correct Code

INT. INTRO-DAY
@overlay MEAN create
@overlay GIRLS create
@overlay THE create
&overlay THE shifts to 47 461 in zone 1 AND overlay THE scales to 1.000 1.000 AND overlay MEAN shifts to 158 458 in zone 1 AND overlay MEAN scales to 1.000 1.000 AND overlay GIRLS shifts to 103 402 in zone 1 AND overlay GIRLS scales to 1.000 1.000

When adding overlays to a scene you can either use:
@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
OR
INT. YOURBACKGROUND with OVERLAY to % x y at layer # in zone #

Also, make sure to delete the numbers before the overlay.

I would suggest looking at this:

And looking at the guides on here:

thanks

Are you getting an error and if so, what does it say?

it doesn’t say error anywhere, the word overlays just dont appear unless i type with overlay next to the background name

If you are using the background to create overlays it would look like this:

INT. INTRO-DAY with THE to 1.000 47 461 in zone 1 with MEAN to 1.000 158 458 in zone 1 with GIRLS to 1.000 103 402 in zone 1

INT. INTRO-DAY
@overlay MEAN create
@overlay GIRLS create
@overlay THE create
&overlay THE shifts to 47 461 in zone 1 AND overlay THE scales to 1.000 1.000 AND overlay MEAN shifts to 158 458 in zone 1 AND overlay MEAN scales to 1.000 1.000 AND overlay GIRLS shifts to 103 402 in zone 1 AND overlay GIRLS scales to 1.000 1.000
If you are creating overlays like this, you have to make it’s opacity 1.
Like:
&overlay MEAN opacity 1
