Snowing outside

I’ve tried directing a scene where the character sits in front of the window looking outside at the snow.

I thought that it should be simple thing to do. I’ve put city background, then “snow” effect on layer 1, living room overlay on layer 2 and character on layer 3.

Unfortunately, despite different techniques… it’s still snowing inside! :sob: I don’t know if I should just give up the snow or am I doing something wrong.

Currently the script looks like this, without the snow:

@overlay LIVINGROOM create
@overlay LIVINGROOM moves to layer 1
@overlay LIVINGROOM opacity 1

@ CHAR spot 0.895 108 159 in zone 1
@ CHAR moves to layer 2
@ CHAR starts idle_sit_anklescrossed_neutral_loop

If you use the effect SNOW that’s on the portal, it will always be the front layer.
If you want to let it snow behind the window, you need to make an overlay with snow and animate it properly :slight_smile:

Oooh, I was afraid that was the case. Thank you for your help!
