Overlay help :(

So i have been watching videos on putting several overlays in a scene and I decided to use this method this one time and it keeps saying ERROR: the coordinates for an overlay can only be specified once.

I dont know what the problem is so if you could please help me I would appreciate it.

Here is the script:

INT.CAFE- DAY with CHAIR_OVERLAY to 1.673 190 -27 in zone 1 at layer 2 with CHAIR2_OVERLAY to 1.837 -29 -42 in zone 1 at layer 2 with TABLE_OVERLAY to 0.522 21 27 in zone 1 at layer 4

I think instead you should do this:

@overlay create
@ovelay opacity 1
And then the placing ext

I’ve never used At layer before maybe it’s not a proper command

The coding looks correct to me. I can’t seem to find why it would come up with that error. :thinking:
Perhaps the error isn’t coming from this line of code?

shouldn’t it be like “overlay name” shifts to … idk usually i put all the overlays in the first line then i use & and start placing them it’s easier i think

for everything that is holy can someone help me with my overlays they work but they don’t show up on screen. lord someone help meee

maybe change opacity

what number cuz I have may code like this
@overlay LEFT ARROW Create
@overlay 5697290179837952_LEFT ARROW shifts to 179 209 in zone 1
@overlay 5697290179837952_LEFT ARROW scales to 1.000 1.000
@overlay 5697290179837952_LEFT ARROW moves to layer 4
@Overlay LEFTARROW Opacity 1 in 0

@overlay RIGHT ARROW Create
@overlay 5697290179837952_RIGHT ARROW shifts to -21 217 in zone 1
@overlay 5697290179837952_RIGHT ARROW scales to 1.000 1.000
@overlay 5697290179837952_RIGHT ARROW moves to layer 5
@Overlay RIGHT ARROW Opacity 1 in 0

@overlay CHECKMARK Create
@overlay 5697290179837952_CHECKMARK shifts to 193 -6 in zone 1
@overlay 5697290179837952_CHECKMARK scales to 1.000 1.000
@overlay 5697290179837952_CHECKMARK moves to layer 6
