Overlay animation won't show up in the app

I have this overlay sequence that is 74 frames long on a loop. The way I do animations in Episode is to create every frame and then just switch them back and forth from opacity 0 to opacity 1 however I fear this may be causing the script reader too much strain. Is there an easier way to upload an animation that won’t be so hard on the portal? I mean the animation works just fine in the portal online but when I try and load it on the app it crashes it without ever even showing the overlays. I really wish Episode could figure out how to play gif files in stories that way I don’t have to go through all the trouble of uploading and timing out overlays all over again but until that happens I’m looking for a way to streamline my code so it will play easier on the app. Any suggestions?
