Tappable overlays, someone help!

I’ve tried to use six tappable overlays in one script but when I review it on the app it the overlays just flash on a black screen. Is it because there’s too many of them? Or is it because they’re still in review? Please help.

Here is my script:
INT. INST - NIGHT

@overlay PIC1 create
@overlay PIC1 opacity 1
@overlay PIC1 shifts to 0 192
@overlay PIC1 scales to 0.280 0.280

@overlay PIC2 create
@overlay PIC2 opacity 1
@overlay PIC2 shifts to 104 192
@overlay PIC2 scales to 0.280 0.280

@overlay PIC3 create
@overlay PIC3 opacity 1
@overlay PIC3 shifts to 213 192
@overlay PIC3 scales to 0.280 0.280

@overlay PIC4 create
@overlay PIC4 opacity 1
@overlay PIC4 shifts to -3 86
@overlay PIC4 scales to 0.280 0.280

@overlay PICFIVE create
@overlay PICFIVE opacity 1
@overlay PICFIVE shifts to 104 86
@overlay PICFIVE scales to 0.280 0.280

@overlay PICSIX create
@overlay PICSIX opacity 1
@overlay PICSIX shifts to 213 86
@overlay PICSIX scales to 0.280 0.280

“PICSIX”{

(I’ve only put the dialogue in everytime so an error doesn’t show up)

The overlays may be popping up because you didn’t include a transition. This way it all of the coding will be skipped, and the overlays will all be on the screen at the same time. Also, you’ve used a black background which is why the background is a black screen. However, you can use any bacgkround you want.

If this doesn’t really make sense, you can watch Joseph Evans’ video on Youtube. Just search Joseph Evans tappable overlays and it should come up.

I hope this helped!
