Want a moving title?

#1

Hello everyone (((:

So I made myself a title overlay and I wanted to show, for whoever doesn’t know, how to move the overlays as a “title screen” during a chapter!

I will be doing the following:

  • Showing the GIF of what I did
  • Sharing the code
  • Explaining the parts of the code (what each overlay is, etc)
  • And answering any questions you guys have ((:

Title overlay (I made separate overlays of each part of the title):

What each overlay in the code resembles:
-THEOVERLAY:


-SUROVERLAY :

-EE9OVERLAY:

Since my title has three parts, I have 3 overlays and 3 overlay commands. If you have more or less than 3 overlays, read the statement below the code
The code (the spaces should NOT be put in the official code, I am using it to show the different overlays + background):

  • If you have less than 3 parts erase one of the overlay sections
  • But if you have more than 3 parts, copy this section and add it to the code, replacing the overlay names with the new overlay name (replace the bold parts) and direct the new overlay’s place, copying and pasting the new coordinates in the italicized section

When you put 6487735020552192_THEOVERLAY for example what does the 6487735020552192 mean
Sorry I suck at overlays

I don’t think you need to put it, :joy: I never put it in pretty sure it’s the code number of the overlay maybe

Because it’s an uploaded overlay, Episode gives it an id number.

It doesn’t matter which one you use.

If you ever edit something in the preview box and you copy the changes to put into your screen, it adds the code thingy but it is not required
