Twitch Stream Scenes for OBS – How to Use OBS Studio Software
If you look closer at your OBS Studio Software you can see it has option to add and use Scenes. The Scenes are like scenes in theatre except you can change them in OBS Studio Software with just a click of a mouse or by using a configures hotkey or shortcut.
Personally I am using 3 different Twitch Stream Scenes for OBS by default:
The first Twitch Steam Scene for OBS is the configuration that I show in my Twitch Live Stream. It includes the game source and some other nice sources. This is also the Twitch Stream Scene for OBS that I record. The Second Scene is Going Live Scene. Going Live Scene with an awesome plugin called Snaz, allows me to show countdown to the beginning of my Twitch Live Stream Start. Furthermore I have Some nice additional Sources there such as:
- Stream Chat
- Stream Alerts
- System Info
- Current Twitch Viewer Count
- The Counter to my Stream Start
- Logos and Promotions (NoCopyrightSound logo for example)
The Final Scene is for Technical Difficulties. Technically it is a Be Right Back Message, that uses most of the Sources the going live does, except the going live counter.
To setup a new scene:
- Click the plus underneath the Scenes view (Step 1)
- Give Scene a name (Step 2)
- Press OK (Step 3)
You now have a clean Twitch Stream Scene For OBS Studio Software. As you can see it is empty so you now have to add sources to it.
- Background (the lowest layer – so that should my game crash, I will not show my Desktop but the background image shows instead) – Image Source (Step 4)
- The Game source (Game capture – will capture your game window) – Game Capture source (Step 5)
- use Capture specific window mode
- from the Window select the game window (the game needs to be running)
- Then I have my transparent logo on some corner of the screen (To Leave my mark on my video) – Image Source (Step 6)
- Make sure your logo does not cover any important parts of the game screen, should you put all other sources on top of the game source
- Stream Chat – Browser Source (Stream Chat Overlay – used together with Stream Labs) (Step 7)
- Twitch Viewer Count – Text Source (used together with Snaz) (Step 8)
- Stream Alerts – Browser Source (used together with Stream labs) (Step 9)
