You need to create or add your overlay to the background first

You can add opacity 0 on the very beginning after the background

This shows on my screen as well. I’m not sure how to fix this but it comes out fine when I view it on my laptop. But to fix the overlay problem, try using this:
EXT. SEASON 1 INTRO with SEASON 1 LETTERING
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING shifts to -14 106
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING scales to 0.902 0.902
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING opacity 0 in 0
@pause for a beat
@pause for a beat
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING opacity 1 in 0.5
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING opacity 1 in 3

So just add “@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING opacity 0 in 0” before the pause for a beat

I just tried that, but it still wont appear when I preview it on my computer or on the app. It might be a glitch but thank you for the help :revolving_hearts: I appreciate it!

What exactly it’s not working? Is overlay not showing up? Or is not fading in?

I’m really not sure why it’s not working. Maybe try adding “in zone 1” after “@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING shifts to -14 106”, if that doesn’t work, I have no idea sorry!

You have your overlay to fade in in 0.5 seconds change it to

@pause for a beat
@overlay SEASON 1 LETTERING opacity 1 in 3.5
