Simultaneously moving overlays/characters


#1

Hey everybody! :raising_hand_woman:

Probably a dumb question… But with car/motorcycle overlays how do you move the characters at the same pace that you are shifting either the car/motorcycle. Everytime I have tried it has come off horribly uneven.

If anyone has any coding/ examples how to make it look smooth I would be most grateful.

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY LOOP - NIGHT with CAR SIDE PINK
&EMILY spot 0.780 -46 64
&overlay CAR SIDE PINK shifts to -852 -6 in 0
&overlay CAR SIDE PINK scales to 1.000 1.000 in 0
&EMILY walks to spot 0.780 136 64 in 3.0
&overlay CAR SIDE PINK shifts to -236 -6 in 3.0
&overlay CAR SIDE PINK scales to 1.000 1.000

Having trouble with what I have put, any suggestions as character as car doesn’t seem to move and character just ends up walking mid air :expressionless:

Try this:

EXT. CITY HIGHWAY LOOP - NIGHT with CAR SIDE PINK to 1.000 -852 -6
&EMILY spot 0.780 -46 64
@pause for a beat
&EMILY walks to spot 0.780 136 64 in 3.0 AND EMILY does it while idle
@overlay CAR SIDE PINK shifts to -236 -6 in 3.0

Hey,

No, it doesn’t work. The car seems to get there before the character so it look like she is walking alongside it.

I just checked. Did you read my guide? :thinking: You have to place your character while it’s offscreen inside the car

So it won’t work because it looks like this:

Try this:
EXT. CITY HIGHWAY LOOP - NIGHT with CAR SIDE PINK to 1.000 -852 -6
&EMILY spot 0.780 -481 64
@pause for a beat
&EMILY walks to spot 0.780 136 64 in 3.0 AND EMILY does it while idle
@overlay CAR SIDE PINK shifts to -236 -6 in 3.0

Yes it worked. :raising_hand_woman:

I was using a looping background so I think that is why I was getting confused with the zooming out.

I have done this as driving off screen- the speed is really quick and its the same speed I used coming on to the screen? Does this look right to you?

&EMILY walks to spot 0.780 1326 64 in 3.0 and EMILY does it while idle
@overlay CAR SIDE PINK shifts to 962 -6 in 3.0

Thank you so much :smile_cat:
