Overlay in zone 3


#1

Hey i really need help on overlay. for example I want to over lay a dirt but not at the beggining of the scene. I tried but i ended up having at layer 1.
Does anyone have any ideas why?
And how to fix it?


#2

Can you post how you currently have it written?


#3


Here you go, I ma not sure if i need to write the shift
So look at it!

Try:

EXT. Greek Row Party - NIGHT with GREEN DIRT to 0.844 26 383 in zone 3 at layer -2

Take away lines 2190 and 2191.

Hi @Ucorn,
You can create an overlay at any point using the following codes
@overlay GREEN DIRT create
@overlay GREEN DIRT shifts to 98 119 in zone __
@overlay GREEN DIRT scales to 0.409 0.409
@overlay GREEN DIRT opacity 1
@overlay GREEN DIRT to layer __

I’m not sure exactly what you are asking to happen, but this is the format for each.

&overlay GREEN DIRT shifts to -244 -640 in 2
@overlay GREEN DIRT scales to 3.323 3.323 in 2

&overlay GREEN DIRT shifts to 98 102 in 2
@overlay GREEN DIRT scales to 0.409 0.409 in 2

#The in 2 means that the action will happen in 2 seconds.
