Overlay help needed right now

I have got words as overlays that I want to appear in my background as the intro and I want the words to come in one by one and I have written down the positions but I don’t know how to get them to come sliding from the side to where I want them. Someone please help!!

Here’s a help thread.

And to have them slide in from the side you’re going to have to position the overlay offscreen then slide it in using another position and by also using the ease in functions.

Here is a site that may help:

And here are the functions. Which is from the above site. Hope these help.

Thanks but still after looking at all that I don’t know how to do it

I have placed them off screen and then done the code to put them where I want but it’s still not working and is staying in the same place and not moving

Have you checked Joseph Evans video about overlays on YouTube?

@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

@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
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:
