Trouble with Overlays


#1

I’m really struggling using overlays. I did a scene with a car overlay and it worked perfectly, however I’m trying to make my character sleep in bed with a blanket over her. Whenever I preview that scene, the overlay doesn’t even show up. It appears somewhere else off the screen. Please help, thank you!


INT. DAY BEDROOM with BEDROOM BLANKET
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 586 279 to 356% in 0

&overlay 5879142682066944_BEDROOM BLANKET shifts to 191 163
&overlay 5879142682066944_BEDROOM BLANKET scales to 0.333 0.333
&KATRINA spot 0.659 206 230 AND KATRINA is sleep_sitting

Putting all the details in the background always works best for me. So try something lile this

INT. DAY BEDROOM with BEDROOM BLANKET to .333 191 163 in zone 2 at layer 1

Wait what do you mean by “.333 191 163”
The first measurements?


#4

Those are the numbers you put into the script so I just moved them to the background. That’s the scale and the location it shifts to


#5

So do I type in the following?:
INT. DAY BEDROOM with BEDROOM BLANKET to 191 163 0.333 0.333


#6

No, copy and paste what I wrote. The scale goes first, then the spot. Make sure to add the zone and layer as well


#7

Ohh, alright I got it. Thanks so much!
