DARA’S GUIDE: Creating Text from Overlays

Wow. That’s kinda handy. Although I prefer to use my overlays, because of the font possibilities, but still


I had no idea you could do that. Thank you so much :smile:

@Dara.Amarie Once your done using the text overlay, is there a way to remove it?

So you would just use the clear command.

does this work for writing readers put in? like [NAME] for MC? In featured stories I’ve been able to choose usernames and such that were later displayed in the story, was it a different method?

&overlay NAMEOVERLAY create text [NAME]

NAMEOVERLAY can be anything you want so you can animate it like a normal overlay


I dont understand any of this, can someone please help a beginner here :sob:

I read that and I still don’t understand :confused:

What don’t you understand? Practice makes perfect :slight_smile:

yes! which is why I’m not giving up till i learn :blush: I’d like to create overlays into text and animate them so in my story, when I’m introducing the characters the text can come sliding in next to the character, introducing their name and some adjectives. but I’m just a beginner and I don’t know how to play around with the opacity and stuff on episode

Can you possibly get different fonts other than the normal one?

What programs or websites can I go to make my own word overlays using different fonts?
