Rotating arm overlay

So im tyring to make my character look like shes holding a gun at someone then she lowers it. But its not moving the way I want it to. Can someone help me?

i believe you put @overlay OVERLAYNAME rotates # anchor point x x in T

# is a number between 0 through 360 (like the degrees of a circle)
360 turns the overlay all the way around, which turns it back to 0
180 makes the overlay upside down
Put a negative sign before the number to make it rotate the opposite way.

Rotating an overlay depends on it’s anchor point which is the point from which the overlay will rotate:
anchor point 0 0 is the bottom left of the overlay
anchor point 0.5 0.5 is the center of the overlay
anchor point 1 1 is the top right of the overlay

Think of a graph when trying to place the anchor point This overlay is rotating from anchor point 0 0 This overlay is rotating from anchor point 0.5 0.5

Keep in mind that the overlay will rotate the entire PNG image of the overlay which includes the transparent background. If you want to make the overlay rotate from the center, then your overlay needs to be in the center of the PNG image.

If your overlay is NOT in the center like this: Then this is how the overlay will rotate at anchor point 0.5 0.5

yes ma’am

maybe instead of putting
@overlay BLAKE JACKET GUN OL rotates -190 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 1

try changing ‘0.5 0.5 in 1’ to ‘1 1 in 1st
