Overlay keeps disappearing or characters end up in the wrong zone


#1

So I’m trying to have to characters eat dinner awkwardly in the living room, specifically in zone 3. For some reason when I play the script no matter how many times I adjust the overlay, the overlay doesn’t show up in the zoomed in portion of the screen. Or better yet, I’ll get a close up view of the side of the characters as if they’re standing in the wrong zone.
I’ve tried everything I can think of to fix this. Help please?

EXT. JUVIE POOL HOUSE INTERIOR - DAY with TABLE DINER at layer 0
@cut to zone 3
@LEXIE changes into Lexie casual 8
@WYNDELL changes into Wyndell kiss scene
@overlay TABLE DINER shifts to -433 54
@overlay TABLE DINER scales to 0.856 0.856
@WYNDELL spot 1.280 -176 -94 in zone 3 AND WYNDELL faces left AND WYNDELL is rear AND WYNDELL moves to layer 2 AND LEXIE spot 1.280 -54 -66 in zone 3 AND LEXIE faces left AND LEXIE moves to layer -1 AND LEXIE is idle_awkward
@pause for 100

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since it involves coding/scripting. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics. :wink:

Try this (you may need to redo the spot coordinates):

@LEXIE changes into Lexie casual 8
@WYNDELL changes into Wyndell kiss scene
EXT. JUVIE POOL HOUSE INTERIOR - DAY with TABLE DINER to 0.856 -433 54 in zone 3 at layer 0
&cut to zone 3
&WYNDELL spot 1.280 -176 -94 in zone 3 AND WYNDELL faces left AND WYNDELL is rear AND WYNDELL moves to layer 2 AND LEXIE spot 1.280 -54 -66 in zone 3 AND LEXIE faces left AND LEXIE moves to layer -1 AND LEXIE is idle_awkward
