AJAX Wordpress Not Reading Variable

I need to increase the number by 18 each time the AJAX it runs.  But it does not see the offset that I have created.
LINE 4 of the html grabs the offset
and passes it to line: 15  of the SCRIPT.

IN The PHP line:5 & 10  / offset does not seem to be set.

But Line:82  is updated with the correct number and is placed back on the page through the script

What am I doing wrong that the offset is not reading the number?
<?php
function be_ajax_load_more_all() {

$offset = isset($_POST['offt']) ? $_POST['offt'] : false;
$offset = intval($offset);

    $args = array(
        'nopaging' => true,
        'posts_per_page' => 18,
        'offset' => $offset,
        'post_type' => 'post',
        'post_status' => 'publish',
        'suppress_filters' => true
    );
    ob_start();
    $posts_array = get_posts($args);
    global $post;
    foreach ($posts_array as $post) {
        $field_name = "show_video";
        $id = $post->ID;
        $video = get_field($field_name, $id);
        $category = $category[0]->cat_name;
        $title = $post->post_title;
        $title = mb_strimwidth($title, 0, 50, '...');
        $tumbnail = get_the_post_thumbnail($id);
        $category = get_the_category();

It was this line: $offset = intval($offset);
