opacity 0 in 0 loop INFINITE times

It replays about halfway through

this part seems wrong - instead of making 38 opacity 0 you make it 2 times opacity 1 - there fore it is not looping because 38 stays on the scene the whole time - there might be other issues too…semm that from this line you changes the code

do you see the column of opacity 1 suddenly starts to be opacity 0 and vice versa from this “longer” line:

and you change opacity of F37 3 times instead of 2 times

Ahh thank you! Do you know which 37 I’m supposed to get rid of?

the last one under the longer line

Ok thank you so much! Let me edit that now

the same goes for F38 and F39 as it seem they are also there 3 times

@pause for 100000

because you wrote in one place word opacity instead of word overlay

you have

THEN opacity G09 opacity 0 in 0

Oops thanks for telling me. Now it΄s working but not smoothly.

Unfortunately, I can’t send you a video here
