🍭 TIP: Rotating An Overlay Without Having it Shift Somewhere else πŸ’œ

Welcome :wave: :purple_heart: :lollipop:

Material that you can upload to the portal to test

To test, you will need to upload 2 things :purple_heart:

Name of the overlay: FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC

FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC

#notes: 235 x 235 (width x length for the purple magic overlay)

Background Name: EXT. EPYXMAGIC

#An example code (you’d copy and paste this into your script and you can test on mobile):

EXT. EPYXMAGIC

&zoom reset

&speechbubble reset

NARR
The magic overlay will appear in the scene.

&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC create
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC scales to 1.000 1.000 in zone 1 in 0
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC shifts to 162 350 in zone 1 in 0
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC to layer 4
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC opacity 1 in 0

NARR
Next, it’s going to spin round and round in a circle.

&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2 THEN overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 loop INFINITE times

NARR
As we can see, it shifts somewhere else and then starts spinning.
To fix this, let’s add a rotation command.

&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC clear

NARR
Now we will create the overlay along with the rotation command.

&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC create
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC scales to 1.000 1.000 in zone 1 in 0
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC shifts to 162 350 in zone 1 in 0
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC to layer 4
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0
&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC opacity 1 in 0

NARR
Next, we will see it spin.

&overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC rotates 360 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 2 THEN overlay FLOWERGRIEFER PURPLEMAGIC rotates 0 anchor point 0.5 0.5 in 0 loop INFINITE times

NARR
As we can see it doesn’t shift anywhere else and instead spins round and round in a circle.
Hope this helps!
