Rotating overlay help!

i have an overlay in zone 3 and when i put the rotating command it just disappears lol i need help

my script:

&overlay LA 1 shifts to 164 -133 in zone 3
&overlay LA 1 shifts to -64 -133
&overlay LA 1 rotates 180 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 zone 3

The second time you specify the shifting, you have to put in zone 3 as well (like in the first line). But actually you can leave the first line out completely and you don’t specify the zone when rotating.:innocent: So it’s just:

&overlay LA1 shifts to -64 -133 in zone 3
&overlay LA 1 rotates 180 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0


when you change anchor point it changes the overlay position.
so first you have to change the anchor point

@overlay LA 1 rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 zone 3

and then after this, you have to spot it in preview … you will have different coordinates than. and after the posting, you give the rotate command with 180° as you need id you need it to rotate in time if you need to rotate it instantly you can add the angle directly to the first line where you change the anchor point

to explain why this happens .the coordinates next to the shift is fix point on the screen…

while the anchor point is point on the overlay… standard anchor point is 0 0 = left lower corner of the overlay.

and the script always places the overlay on the coordinates on the anchor point.

so if you keep the coordinates of the shift (the point on the screen is the same) but you move the anchor point it is logical thr overlay will be placed differently.

hope on this picture it is understandable that the shift position is the same but the overlay is on other place when you change anchor point
