There' several types (so naturally, I may miss yours)

There's graphic overlays for behind-the-scenes DOS functions. There's
DB overlays in Clarion & dBase (same function, only in a database).
There's cell animation overlays in the Disney animation software (like
the old paper method). To which do you refer?

CompSci on a Mac??? Wow. We only needed an XT. (And half the
excersises could be done on my KayPro 2X.) You should have seen
an AT chomp thru our (Turbo Pascal 3.0) assignments...

Trivia question: Does anyone here (besides Joey) know what an
overlay is?
