Overlay Not Going To It's Coordinates Please Help!

I’ve been writing my script and I added a overlay in the middle of a scene, but when I click preview it doesn’t go to it’s coordinates. I don’t know if I’m doing it wrong, but can someone please help me with this issue. :sweat: Thanks in advance!!! :smile: :heart:

Overlay Coordinates:

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION create

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION opacity 1 in 0

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION shifts to 128 275

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION scales to 0.279 0.279

add the coordinates before opacity and put “in 0” after the coordinates

Here’s an example:

I’m sorry what do you mean? :thinking:

like this:

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION create

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION shifts to 128 275 in zone # in 0

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION scales to 0.279 0.279 in zone # in 0

&overlay ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION opacity 1 in 0

or you could do:

INT. BACKGROUND with ANGRY FACE EXPRESSION to 0.279 128 275 in zone # at layer #
