Shifting an overlay


#1

So my script looks like this

INT. CAFE- DAY with INT. CAFE OL - DAY

@overlay INT. CAFE OL - DAY shifts to 223 -19

@pan to zone 3

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE spot 1.280 270 -83

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE faces right

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE starts talk_sit_neutral_loop,

I want the overlay to already be in place when the scene starts, is there something different I should write in my script?

You’re missing the scale for the overlay, but if you want it to be there when the scene starts try this

INT. CAFE- DAY with INT. CAFE OL - DAY to 1.000 223 -19 in zone (1,2,3)
@pan to zone 3

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE spot 1.280 270 -83

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE faces right

@EXTRAFIVEFEMALE starts talk_sit_neutral_loop,

I put 1.000, because I’m assuming you wouldn’t like to change the size of the overlay, just where it’s placed :blush:
