Yeah if you can find a way to post your script we could both try and help you as much as possible, if not, take a picture of your script and send it to me via Instagram and I can try and help you there instead x IG: leigh.episode

Why is there numbers before the MERMAID PWER and BLUESPARK? Is there two different overlays for each?

there are only two overlays for blue spark

What’s this then?

im not understanding i thought those number didn’t matter :pleading_face:

Try to see if anything changes if you get rid of the numbers before these overlays just to see if anything changes.

I removed the numbers but my overlay is still moving off screen

Have you tried moving the overlay to the exact spot you want it to be and then inputting the spot into the script?

Have you tried using the & character at the start of the command to get the commands to occur simultaneously?

yes i have :sob:

this numbers you gent when you move the overlay in preview window ad copy the commad from there wia copy button - it eorks both with the nuber or without it.

can you please give here your overlays? I will replay it in my profile to see the problem

Also question - do you want the overlay to move and scale in the same time or do you want it to shift first and only after it to scale?

Because if you want both in one time than your code is not right and it actually might be the problem.

Use & in case you want it happen in one time - like this:

&overlay MERMAID PWER shifts to -275 -531 in zone 2 in 2 using easeout
@overlay MERMAID PWER scales to 7.696 7.696 in zone 2 in 2 using easeout

also I am really not sure if you can use easing function with scale…but maybe yes…I never tried but if it will not work just in case try it like that

&overlay MERMAID PWER shifts to -275 -531 in zone 2 in 2 using easeout
@overlay MERMAID PWER scales to 7.696 7.696 in zone 2 in 2

im gonna try that but here are the overlays

pv1_back_BLUESPARK_5431962710114304_a59a2e5b65cbc05729b34f738b7dbc15 pv1_back_MERMAID_PWER_4588766359781376_a59a2e5b65cbc05729b34f738b7dbc15

which one is the BLUESPARK -the bigger blue one?

yes

so I tested it …strange is in you video the green overlay comes to centre of the screen but I see it comming to the right corner…

.how ever the movement with this easing function gives it strange loop which I am really not sure you want (looks odd to me)

I tried just simple linear movement and shift and it works fine using &…just check the spot you want to be at the end - it should be on the character on the left?
