Problem with fireworks overlays

I want the fire work to be in the same place as the “starter” And I can’t get it to work:

EXT. CITY NIGHT SKY

@zoom on 320 322 to 257% in 3

@overlay 1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED create

@overlay 1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED opacity 1

@overlay 4723358450843648_1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED shifts to 194 27 in zone 1
@overlay 4723358450843648_1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED scales to 0.712 0.712
@overlay 4723358450843648_1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED moves to layer 1

@overlay 4723358450843648_1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED shifts to 187 159 in zone 1 in 3

@overlay RED FIREWORK create

@overlay RED FIREWORK opacity 1

@overlay 4723358450843648_RED FIREWORK shifts to 180 251 in zone 1
@overlay 4723358450843648_RED FIREWORK scales to 0.388 0.388
@overlay 4723358450843648_RED FIREWORK moves to layer 2

@overlay 1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED opacity 0

&overlay 4723358450843648_RED FIREWORK shifts to 108 180 in zone 1

&overlay 4723358450843648_RED FIREWORK scales to 0.856 0.856 in 3

Can you upload the relevant overlays (to the forums)?

I’ve got some code here that does something similar to the code there:

@zoom on 320 322 to 257% in 3

&overlay FR1 create from 1RST STAGE FIREWORK RED
&overlay FR1 opacity 1
&overlay FR1 shifts to 194 27 in zone 1
&overlay FR1 scales to 0.712 0.712
&overlay FR1 moves to layer 1
@overlay FR1 shifts to 187 159 in zone 1 in 3

&overlay FR create from RED FIREWORK
&overlay FR opacity 1
&overlay FR shifts to 212 279 in zone 1
&overlay FR scales to 0.182 0.182
&overlay FR moves to layer 2
&overlay FR1 opacity 0

&overlay FR shifts to 108 180 in zone 1 in 3
&overlay FR scales to 0.856 0.856 in 3

I just made the expanded version start smaller and then changed the command for the shifting of it, so that it moves to the new position while scaling, which makes it look as if it isn’t moving at all.
Hope that helped!
