Dab de doo, we're lit like you!

@overlay BLANK TEXT opacity 1

@overlay EMOJII opacity 1

Hey there, I think a layer at the beginning could help you there.
Try:
INT. PHONE MESSENGER - DAY with BLANK TEXT to 0.442 55 178 in zone 1 (or another zone) at layer 100 with EMOJII to 0.388 93 358 in zone 1 (same zone as blank text) at layer 200

@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1 in 0

Or whatever number of seconds you want it to appear in

All the people above me are correct. Although I wanted to ask, why are you using overlays? Using the format ‘phonetext’ allows you to write in text form. I just think it would be much easier that way :blush:

Wait how do you do that?
