You can also use overlays to create interesting lighting effects in your story. Just like weather, these are established during a new Background beat, and should be listed at the end of the entire background command:
EXT. ABANDONED HOME - DAY with EFFECT DIM 60
If that background has other overlays applied to it, the lighting must come at the very end:
EXT. ABANDONED HOME - DAY with TABLE CAFE with EFFECT PINK SPOTLIGHTS
They can also be used with weather - in which case the weather MUST come last:
EXT. ABANDONED HOME - DAY with EFFECT DIM 60 with effect RAINSome of the overlay effects include lighting and smoke. As we add more, you can search “Effect” to find them here.
