Spotting Help (INK)

im trying to get a character named Ally to walk to Victoria so they can talk but it looks wrong
can someone help please

here is the scene

@VICTORIA spot 1.037 186 122 in zone 1
@VICTORIA moves to layer 0
@VICTORIA faces left and VICTORIA is tinker_loop_rear
@VICTORIA starts dustoff_loop
@pause for a beat
@VICTORIA changes into Victoria_Bar_Uniform
@pause for a beat
@VICTORIA starts think
@pause for 2
(Looks good)
(Time for work)
@ALLY walks to spot 1.280 100 1 in zone 1
@ALLY moves to layer 0 and ALLY faces right

Which zone are they in? Also I don’t think you need the layers…

zone 1 and because Victoria is tinker_rear_loop while getting clothes out of her locker it uses layers

So I don’t think you need the “zone 1” .

also how do you get overlays to appear and disappear while shes doing tinker_loop_rear because I have someone ordering a drink at the bar

To get overlays to appear is using the command

@overlay WHATEVER OVERLAY create

have I done it right?

INT. RED BAR - NIGHT with BAR1 to 1.000 0 0 in zone 1 at layer 3
@overlay 5629308471148544_BAR shifts to -32 -2 in zone 1
@overlay 5629308471148544_BAR scales to 1.000 1.000
@overlay 5629308471148544_BAR moves to layer 3
@zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 0
@overlay 5629308471148544_BAR1 shifts to 0 0
@overlay 5629308471148544_BAR1 scales to 1.000 1.000
&cut to zone 1 AND zoom on 836 87 to 113% in 0
@VICTORIA walks to spot 1.082 220 107 in zone 1
@zoom reset
@HOLLIE spot 1.280 73 82 in zone 1
@HOLLIE moves to layer 3 and HOLLIE starts idle_sit_rear
VICTORIA (talk_gesture)
What can i get you babe
White Wine please
VICTORIA (tinker_loop_rear)
Coming right up
VICTORIA (talk_gesture)
Here you are
@overlay WINE GLASS create

Is it playing properly?

No the overlay isn’t showing

ive placed the cover lay

this is the code

@overlay 4527862507700224_WINE GLASS shifts to 115 220 in zone 1
@overlay 4527862507700224_WINE GLASS scales to 0.280 0.280
@overlay 4527862507700224_WINE GLASS moves to layer Max Layer

I need it to appear when Victoria says here you are

Maybe use & overlay WINE GLASS create

To get it to appear when she says “here your drink”

@overlay WINE GLASS at 0.280 115 220
(I think) because all the extra stuff will take time to load the overlay

do I put it after or before the here you go?

Maybe before, so it’ll take less time to the overlay to appear on screen

still not working :frowning:

&overlay NAME create
&overlay NAME shifts to…
&overlay NAME scales to…
&overlay NAME moves to layer…
&overlay NAME opacity 1 in 0

You need to add the opacity command in order to make the overlay visible if you’re using the create command for it.

That worked thank god :slight_smile:

im trying to get my character to walk to a certain spot behind the bar but she keeps scaling

You’re trying to get VICTORIA to walk into the scene, correct?
If yes, what direction do you want her to come in from?


@VICTORIA spot 1.082 420 107 in zone 1 at layer 2 AND VICTORIA faces left

@VICTORIA walks to spot 1.082 220 107 in 1.5

for her layer # number, I put in 2, but you can pick a diff number
