Code in what zone the overlay is in

For example:
@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL shifts to 261 212 in zone #
@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL scales to 0.217 0.217 in zone #

Thanks! That method caused the bagel to show up, but it created another problem. Before it falls, it freezes up in my character’s hand, and doesn’t fall:

@remove Bagel Plain from CARMEN
@overlay BAGEL create
@overlay BAGEL opacity 1

@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL shifts to 261 212 in zone 2
@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL scales to 0.217 0.217 in zone 2
@zoom on 640 229 to 285% in 2

@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL shifts to 261 212 in 3 in zone 2
@overlay 6518280348565504_BAGEL scales to 0.217 0.217 in zone 2

I don’t know if this will work but try putting an & sign instead of an @ sign

Like this:
&remove Bagel Plain from CARMEN
@overlay BAGEL create

As I said I don’t know if that will work but it’s worth a try :sweat_smile::blush:

Do you recommend & signs on all the beginning lines? or just the first one. Sorry, I’m a bit unexperienced in overlays :grin:

I would say just the first line but I don’t really know :blush:

I can try!

It gives me a warning when I type “&remove Bagel Plain from CARMEN”

Then I don’t know what to do, sorry :frowning_face::heart:

It’s ok, I can try to adjust my script! :two_hearts:

Do you mean this zoom?

That isn’t a valid command. It needs to be

I’ve got a new question if someone has the time to help!

During a conversation, I want to zoom in and out on the characters at certain points. When it zooms in, it goes straight to the spot I asked it to. But when it zooms out, it shifts over to the left before going to the spot I would like it to go it. I would rather it go straight to the spot without the added shift over. Is it possible to do this?

Here is what the zoom IN code looks like:

    SAL (talk_pointup_happy)
You're the one who wanted me to come late.

&zoom on 693 220 to 158% in 2.5 AND SAL is idle
@speechbubble reset
YOU (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
I know, and I can’t thank you enough for doing it.

And here is what the zoom OUT code looks like:

SAL (talk_gossip)
I would have killed to be in college at 16.
@YOU is laugh_giggle
label choose_room
&zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 1.5
@speechbubble is 103 251 to 100% with tail_top_right
SAL (talk_flirt_coy)
So, how do you want to decorate our room?

Thank you for your time!

how do I do those clock transitions?

The code for that is:

@transition iris fade in/out

it has an error:

Sorry I wrote wrong, take away “fade” so it’s just “@transition iris in/out”


Can somebody write the code for a lying animation for the background INT. JUVIE HOSPITAL ROOM - DAY … The character’s name is Caroline and the animation is idle_lay_groggy_neutral_loop
