Unidentifiable error within my script

Hi lovelies! So I coded an intro that uses several different overlays that serve as frames to create a GIF sequence. In addition to the frames, I also attached two different overlays (chapter number + title). But for some strange reason, the coding works perfectly fine right until the overlay sequence ends. For some strange reason, the overlays and titles scale down a lot and adhere to the black background, leaving a weird mess of overlays as the screen fades out black. I’ll leave a copy of my code down below to see if any of you can identify the root of the problem.

this right here is a zoomed in version of this:

i think the issue may be that there’s just too much for donacode to process given that there are 17 overlays i’m using to create a GIF. is there any way to fix this, or would it just be better to omit the code and stick to something simpler?

@transition fade out black in 2.

It would be best to use a different background. Overlays are wonky with this specific background. You can either upload your own black background or use INT. BLUE - DAY and cut to zone 2

Ah okay, after following your advice, the GIF finally works as expected! Thank you so much.
