Overlays show up different via online previewer vs. mobile?

My overlays won’t show up properly. If I want something to come up from an offscreen place and fade in, it’ll do that perfectly on the online previewer, but then on the mobile, that same one will only fade in.

&ui EFFECT DIM 60 create
&ui INSTA1 create
&ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 shifts to 0 -535 in zone 1
&ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 scales to 1.000 1.000
&ui EFFECT DIM 60 moves to layer 6
&ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 moves to layer 7
&ui EFFECT DIM 60 opacity 1 in 2
&ui INSTA1 opacity 1 in 2.5
@ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 shifts to 0 0 in zone 1 in 4 using easein

This has been happening multiple times with my story at various different parts and it hasn’t really changed with anything I’ve tried, which has been very frustrating because I won’t catch it until I’m long done working on the scene and I have to go back and troubleshoot to no avail.

I’d really appreciate all and any help I could get on this, so thanks in advance!

my device resizes the speechbubbles :confused: i really don’t know what to do. try sending a ticket. you never know they might resolve it

Hmm… maybe it’s because you have everything here happening at the same time? Because what you have here will cause the INSTA overlay to shift onscreen at the same time as it increases in opacity.

But also, it looks like sometimes you include the numbers in the overlay name and sometimes you don’t. I’m not sure if that affects anything.

The numbers are from the online previewer and haven’t affected anything, but I’ll remove that and see how it goes.

The fading in and shifting onscreen at the same time is on purpose, though. It’s supposed to fade in and move onscreen at the same time, but instead it only fades in to the spot it’s supposed to end up at without moving anywhere on mobile.

I think it’s because your initial “shifts to” command is happening at the same time as the one where it moves to a new spot.

Try this:

@ui EFFECT DIM 60 create
@ui INSTA1 create
@ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 shifts to 0 -535 in zone 1
@ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 scales to 1.000 1.000
@ui EFFECT DIM 60 moves to layer 6
@ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 moves to layer 7
&ui EFFECT DIM 60 opacity 1 in 2
&ui INSTA1 opacity 1 in 2.5
@ui 6471474682200064_INSTA1 shifts to 0 0 in zone 1 in 4 using easein

I know that there are often differences between the web and app previewers so I wouldn’t be surprised if glitches are happening, although I personally only use the app previewer. The only other thing I’d maybe consider would be the 2 shifts happening at the same time for the Insta overlay.


Edit: Just noticed Banana’s response above me.
