Can someone please help me make a character move inside the TV? I want my MC to watch something on the news. please help!

you need to use overlays.
put the overlay at layer 2, the character inside the tv at layer 1 and the mc at layer 3

Thank you so much. I will try that.

let me know if it didn’t work

save a TV overlay that shows a TV with the middle part where the show is supposed to be transparent (you can probably find this off google), upload it on overlays.

go onto your script and use this overlay and put your character inside of it with spot directing.
make sure the TV is on a layer higher than the character (for example tv at layer 2 and character at layer 1)
