Could anyone help me to figure out what to do. None of the overlays are showing up, it is just a black screen!

You need to make sure you shift the overlays so they can show up on screen. They might be too big, so you’ll need to size them down and have an exact location for them. Make sure to use the same location.

If you’re using a 2 or 3 zone background, they’ll appear in the zone 1, so make sure to drag them and resize them :heart:

Also, I don’t think it’s the case, but try not to use the original black background from Episode :pray: I don’t know how to explain it but it’s just evil!! Things don’t work with that background (you can upload a black background yourself)

You made it very quickly appear

And then disappear.
I don’t know if that’s the problem, but you may want to write it like this:
@overlay OPENING PT 1 opacity 1 in 0.1
@overlay OPENING PT 2 opacity 1 in 0.1
@pause for 5
@overlay OPENING PT 1 opacity 0 in 0
@overlay OPENING PT 3 opacity 1 in 0.1
@pause for 5
@overlay OPENING PT 2 opacity 0 in 0

Is this a gif?

Yes!

I’m sending you a link rn. I have a 14 page tutorial written on it with screenshots and pics. I’ll link it here. Also I think I see a couple of errors. I can actually just PM you if it would be easier.

I’m also attaching a background that’s sized correctly. In just a moment. Just download and upload it.

Hey bt gifs are still…at last it says ( &overlays and THEN) is not vaild command

&overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in .1 THEN overlay OVERLAYNAME2 opacity 0 in 0

You can’t say “and THEN” because AND means at the same time and THEN means following.

&overlay GIF1 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF8 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF2 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF1 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF3 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF2 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF4 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN GIF3 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF5 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF4 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF6 opacity 1 in 1.1 then overlay GIF5 opacity 0 in 0 then overlay GIF7 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF6 opacity 0 in 0 THEN overlay GIF8 opacity 1 in 1.1 THEN overlay GIF7 opacity 0 in 0 loop INFINITE times

here it is! Is there any problem?

1 in .1 If it’s 1.1 it will take too long to appear.

I got it… THANKS DEAR
