I’m trying to write a scene where the character are in a jail cell, but you can’t see the cell until it fades in later. But the issue is, in the very beginning of the scene there’s this little second when you can see the jail cell and then it disappears.
I think it’s because I have this action: &overlay PRISON BARS CLOSED opacity 0% in 0 in zone 1 at layer 3
Right underneath this placement.
This action: INT. PRISON SIDE 1 - DAY with PRISON BARS CLOSED to 1.000 0 0 in zone 1 at layer 3
I’m just trying to make the cell be in that background, but not visible for readers until it fades in later. Can someone help me out? Any type of help is appreciated.
