You need to add the overlay to your scene, either by writing it next to the background name or using the create command. Read more about it here: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

If you’re still stuck, you can screenshot or copy & paste the overlay part of your scene : )

I’d be happy to help :smile:

This is what I have in my script

EXT. JUNGLE BUNKER - NIGHT
music off
@cut to zone 4
@overlay JUNGLE VINES create
@overlay JUNGLE VINES scales to 0.190 0.184 in zone 4
@overlay JUNGLE VINES shifts to 290 290 in zone 4
@overlay JUNGLE VINES moves to layer 1
@overlay JUNGLE VINES opacity 1

That’s great to hear :wink:

OMG OMG I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR UR STORY :heart_eyes:

P.S in case anybody wants to understand overlays, here ya go:

Adding an overlay to the beginning of a scene:

INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY with OVERLAYNAME to % x y in zone # at layer #

Adding an overlay into the middle of the scene:

@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to 100 100 in zone # in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to 1.0 1.0 in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 0

GOOD LUCK FRIEND :heart: :spider_web:

oh I’m definitely in the SPOOKY SPIRIT alright. The entire month I’ve been binge watching creepy/ scary movies to create the mood I need for my story! :ghost::spider_web::spider::jack_o_lantern::skull::vampire:t3:

It’s just this chapter has a lot of complex scenes with overlay and spot placing so it take time to place everything just so. :sweat:

I’m trying to make it as detailed as possible without getting too drawn out, and finding that balance can be so tough! :triumph:
