Placing characters in the background


#1

does anyone know how to place more than one character in the background behind the desk sitting?


#2

you would need to layer them & / or use an overlay


#3

Each desk would need to be an overlay for them to be behind the desks


#4

oh. ok


#5

when i try to use @character layer # it doesn’t work


#6

It is:

@character moves to layer #


#7

I use &'s


#8

its @CHAR moves to layer #


#9

is it &character moves to layer #? or is it @character moves to layer #?


#10

It depends. You can do this (its an example)
@CHAR walks to spot 1.280 290 116 and CHAR moves to layer 2
or
@CHAR moves to layer -2
Or
@CHAR walks to spot x y z at layer #


#11

i just want more characters sitting in the other chairs. how would i do that?


#12

You have to make those desks into overlays. Right now they’re just part of the background.


#13

do i have to use a different background to that? or just add the name of the overlay to the existing background?


#14

You’d have to turn them into/create your own overlay


#15

so does that mean i have change the background im using and add the my own desk overlay?


#16

No just add the created overlays to that background.


#17

it gave me an error


#18

“with” needs to be all lower case


#19

still got an error it says that background doesn’t exist


#20

did you actually create the overlay for the desk? because episode doesn’t create one for you, you have to create it yourself
