DARA’S GUIDE: Overlays

here is the hour hand

Your hand overlays weren’t in the center of the entire PNG image, there was more transparent space. Here I cropped them for you so that they’re now in the middle

I think it’s amazing that you’ve posted this template. However, I’m still confused as to how to add my five overlays to my blank canvas (background). I’d like to add animations such as opacity but whenever I use the template it doesn’t work. Please help if you can!

You need to use command create as well or add it to a background

Sorry, to keep bothering you. But how do I make the animation bounce?

You will need to use an easing function :blush::point_down:

Hey Dara, how do i do if I want to use the same text overlay in a same chapter? I’ve already read what you’ve write here for duplicate an overlay, but i ask because I tried to do it more than once in a chapter and, it works only the first time but nothing happen for the others. Can you help me please? @Dara.Amarie

Hi, I saw the part about rotating overlays, but for my story I need to flip/mirror an overlay. If I rotate it 180 degrees, it would n’t be mirrored, not sure if this makes sense, but is there anyway to do this in episode?
If not I could get it in a photo editor, but that would be tricky,

thanks a lot, your guides always help so much!

I have some overlays I want invisible at the beginning of the scene and I don’t know how to do it.
