Overlay problem (Help)

I did an overlay and at first it comes large with the screen and then it comes normal where i placed it and its really bothering me, do you know how to arrange it pls?

You have to place it at the beginning of the scene. What does your script look like?

INT. MOD APARTMENT - NIGHT with EXT.APARTMENT1 in zone 1 at layer 0 with DOOR2 in zone 1 at layer 0 with 15 in zone 1 at layer 1
@overlay 4676240068575232_EXT.APARTMENT1 shifts to -3 -144 AND overlay 4676240068575232_EXT.APARTMENT1 scales to 1.306 1.306 AND overlay 4676240068575232_DOOR2 shifts to 48 12 AND overlay 4676240068575232_DOOR2 scales to 0.802 0.802 AND overlay 4676240068575232_15 shifts to 153 346 AND overlay 4676240068575232_15 scales to 0.532 0.532
@pause for a beat

It looks like this…

You can either add “in 0” after every overlay command while also using the & sign, or just add the scale and shift coordinates to the background name instead.

&overlay EXT.APARTMENT1 shifts to -3 -144 in 0 and overlay EXT.APARTMENT1 scales to 1.306 1.306 in 0
&overlay DOOR2 shifts to 48 12 in 0 and overlay DOOR2 scales to 0.802 0.802 in 0
&overlay 15 shifts to 153 346 in 0 and overlay 15 scales to 0.532 0.532 in 0

or

INT. MOD APARTMENT - NIGHT with EXT.APARTMENT1 to 1.306 -3 -144 in zone 1 at layer 0 with DOOR2 to 0.802 48 12 in zone 1 at layer 0 with 15 to 0.532 153 346 in zone 1 at layer 1
