Transitioning Errors

So I am trying to fade out black then fade in black to a different background. I did the coding for it and I did spot directing in between the fades, so when it fades in the characters are already positioned. For some reason the fade in and out awkwardly switches to the next scene, glitching the characters out, not in the position they were assigned.

Heres my coding:

@ATHENA exits left AND ATHENA is walk_neutral
@transition fade out black in 1
&overlay RED KITCHEN create
&overlay RED KITCHEN opacity 0 in 0
&overlay RED KITCHEN shifts to 0 0 in 0
&overlay RED KITCHEN scales to 1.000 1.000
&overlay RED KITCHEN moves to layer 1
&YASMIN moves to layer 2
&ATHENA moves to layer 3
@YASMIN spot 0.741 227 223 AND YASMIN is tinker_stand_neutral_loop_rear
@transition fade in black in 1
@ATHENA enters from left to spot 1.280 90 -3
@ATHENA is idle AND ATHENA faces right
@ATHENA walks to spot 0.741 161 223 in 2 AND ATHENA does it while walk_neutral_rear AND ATHENA faces left
@ATHENA is idle AND ATHENA faces right
@YASMIN is idle AND YASMIN faces left

Use the & sign for this command.

I changed it but then Athena suddenly pops up on screen in a position I didn’t assign (She pops up screen right for a second then disappears and starts entering from the left) . Yasmin is now fixed though, thanks.

Okay so the reason that’s happening is because added the layer commands before you placed your characters. When you add layers, you have to add at the same time you place your characters. Also, using “enters from” places the characters at default layers, so you will need to place your character at a spot offscreen with the layer you want them at then make them walk to their spot. When using spot direction, you can add the layer using this format:
@CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer #

&YASMIN spot 0.741 227 223 in zone 1 at layer 2 AND YASMIN is tinker_stand_neutral_loop_rear
&ATHENA spot 1.280 -100 -3 in zone 1 at layer 3
@transition fade in black in 1
@ATHENA walks to spot 1.280 90 -3

Thank you so much! You’re a miracle worker I swear!!
