You would have to layer them behind the laptop overlay once you have an overlay.

Here’s a little guide on layers: What do the layers mean?

A guide on overlays: A Guide to Using & Animating OVERLAYS

An easy thing to remember is the lower the number, the more likely someone or something (an overlay, for example) is behind someone or something else. The higher the number, the more in front.

An example could be the laptop would be at layer 0, while the person you want behind it or technically inside of it (like a video chat, I’m assuming) is at layer -1. I highly suggest reading the guides as they are all helpful.

Also in the laptop overlay you should be able to put them strait behind the laptop if it is a png overlay.

Don’t be hard on yourself. We all had to learn at some point, and honestly, I’m still learning. You’ll get the hang of it. :slight_smile:
