PLEASE HELP! My overlay is showing up in my script

I’m a new writer so I’m learning as I go. This is what I have. Is there something I’m missing?

BACKGROUND
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 546 325 to 451% in 0

@CHARACTER changes into (OUTFIT)

@CHARACTER spot 0.550 44 475 in zone 2 at layer 1 AND CHARACTER faces left AND CHARACTER starts ANIMATION

@pause for beat

@overlay (OVERLAY NAME) create
@overlay opacity 1

You’d need to have your overlay name written after “overlay”

Like this:

@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1 in 0

I suggest using & instead of @ for overlays

Thanks for the tip. I made the changes and it’s still not showing my overlay. Do I have to wait for episode to approve my overlay before it will show up?

If you just uploaded your overlay on a different tab, then save your script and refresh it, also since your scene is focused in zone 2 your overlay is probably still in zone 1, you’ll have to shift and scale it to the correct spot, and no it does not need to be approved in order for the overlay to show up

Oh ok that worked. Thanks for your help.
