Transcripts

1. OBS Introduction: Welcome to my OBS course. This course is a course for beginners, people that start out with OBS, but we'll be going over a lot of different settings and a lot of cool things you will be doing in OBS. We're gonna go over setting basic things up like audio and video, how to get your gameplay on OPS. But we will also be going over how to change your camera shape, how to add a guest if you want to do an interview or something like that. And for your game is out there, we're also going to explain how to connect units and switch to OBS. So in this course, we not only go over the basics briefly cover for more than that, Let's jump right into it. 2. OBS Download And Watch Out For Scams!: They should OBS can go around and I don't want you to fall into this OBS studio.com. That is a scam. That's not the actual OBS website, but how should you download OBS then? As I say here, the only actual website is OBS project.com. This is how the actual OBS website looks like. Here we can just choose where knows, it starts downloading up here if you have Firefox and down in the bottom, if you have Chrome. 3. OBS Basics: The ones who start streaming with OBS, but you really don't know what sewed up. This is a basic tutorial about how to search remain with OBS. We opened OBS. What you see here is little bit different than what you see yourself. Probably, there we go. This is how it will be S looks for you prolly. What we have here is an empty canvas. What did you probably wants to do is at your gameplay and overlays and maybe your camera in here. So the first thing I want to start with is adding our camera, click on the plus. I would go to video capture device. Then here we call it whatever your camera is called, C11122 because I'm using the largest vaccine and 20 at the moment we're going to add that and we're gonna find it. And here it is, HD webcam. If you haven't seen 20, there's this fall on that it shows in this weird ratio, what do you need to do is set up custom here and put a resolution of ten ADP in here. Then it actually fills your screen. You can see me. Now. Hello me. Let me click on. Okay, now we have the webcam. But the webcam is rather big because if he wants some gameplay or something like taffy, we can't really see it. So what we can do is make it smaller, click on the image, the webcam hold Control and drag it in. Now you can see we keep it in proportion so we can make it as small or big as we want. We can even zoom in like this, so it's bigger than the actual Canvas, but we're going to make it small right now. For example, like this. Now it is a smallest, we want to have it. We didn't have a board or anything yet. It doesn't really matter. You see that yourself or smaller than this border, you can always hold Alt and then therapies things in. Now, this border is smaller even though you didn't crop yourself, just the edges. But for this tutorial, I'm just gonna make it normal ten ADP ratio. The second thing we wanted to do is add gameplay. There's a couple of ways to add gameplay. There's two I recommend using gameplay capture and vessel capture. Usually using the gameplay capture is a better way of doing it, but sometimes games don't really want to work with it and then you want to go for the best one. The decimal one is super easy to add. You just go here, click on the plus and add Display Capture. Here. You can give it a name. I'll just leave it like this for an authorial and click. Okay, now you see my clinic sex, one of my mother's, I can switch them on answers here. I've got three at the moment, but this is the one I want to use for the tutorial because this is the screen, this is my main screen. Right now we're capturing this as you see, our camera is underneath it. So if you drag it up, the cameras over it, this is a way of capturing a game because if I display game on this screen, it will be on the stream. This is a dirty window as if you've got an pop-ups or something like that. The whole stream, you'll see that there is a second way of doing things, but for that we need to actually open the application. So let me just open Steve and open up a game. It's opening up evil genius student. We're going to tap out back to OBS plus game capture. You feel genius. Now we can set this first one on specific window. And the window we want evil genius because that's the game we want to play. And then we click on, Okay, Right now, you don't see it up here, but you can do is go back into game and then go back here and you'll see it appear again if you edited, it will be the top layer. So drag it underneath your camera or track your camera over it to make sure that your camera is above it. Now we can see we can start playing this game where our camera is in. Our game isn't. We've got two more problems though. As you see, it's picking up on mike already because I edited. But we have an editor yet. We also don't have the music or sound from decaying yet. So what we want to do is capture the sound of your PC plus audio output capture. We can call this whatever we wanted, headphones or something like that. Then we want to select the thing you are hearing, the auto width for me. I'm hearing it with these headphones, however, they are in my XLR wave. So we're going to deselect that instead because it's the wave. I'm actually using the faith link software, so I need to select the wavelength software. As you see for me. This is both going to start making sound as India okada waves. So far I haven't got my mic muted. You see if I start talking, it's also sending it to a stream. If it's a stream, then it will only go through the mic input. I like to separate them. You don't have to do this with the software. But because I can put effects and stuff again on a microphone without putting it on the rest. I like to separate them. But if you just have the wave, fair, just at only the WAF link streaming it and it will also pick up your microphone so you don't have to worry about that. Some of them need audio output and some of them need audio input. It can be a little bit confusing as audio output, let me show you would have different headphones. So if you would have your ghettos in their headphones, you can also click this one, or you have your headphones right into UPC is also audio output. So usually you use audio output, puberty way Flink software, you use audio input. As you see here. Any other input capture you can hear sounds, but I'm not recording it, so you guys don't hear it, but you can see that it comes in OBS here. I'm really awkwardly recording this with extreme lows, OBS because I need to record OBS normally I don't use drools or BS, but Yeah, it's skulls, femurs desktop, nobody way, which is really great that the chance to name. Thanks. All right, so we've added that. We've added our mic, but adding the same thing, input or output. Input. Most likely, generally speaking for you Mike, you use audio input capita for your headphones and deaths of sound, you use audio output capture, but it can be a little bit confusing because the wave software changes things up a little bit. If you want to edit alerts, you can do that by the browser shorts here from alerts services like extreme elements, for example, you get a link that you can pace here and above the source. So if you add a browser sorts, you get this link here that you can replace with the actual link you've got formed a website. You can do that with any alerts surface, I'm looking at the owned right now and here if I can download the Plugin, we could actually add an overlay package really easily. Yes. It's all in the floor. Installed a plug-in finish. Now, the plug-in should be in Arab, yes. And we can go here and you probably don't see it yet, so we need to restart OBS. Right now. You see that the game isn't working anymore is because we resorted OBS and it needs to connect back to the game, but it doesn't matter right now. What matters is that owned pros here. Here, we can log in with our twitch and we can see that this window popped up in OBS, like you see, it's another browser, it's in OBS itself, and we can select which one we want here. So let's go forward the easy one here. Click on Install and it's installing, downloading it, boom, it's making a new scene collection. What do you need to knew from skin collections here at the top you see scene collections. And here we can switch in-between. If I go to Tree stream, you will see that this is all the things I usually use for my stream. Which means that if you want to change some things in your overlays, you can make difference in collections and things won't be changing your orders in collections. Here you see that we have a starting student and a lysine. See that it also switches immediately. Just shutting. Seen here. What we want to do is we want to add our phase in here and our gay maybe. What we can do again, what we learned is we can add her face going into this and adding the scene and 20. We can put it under the overlays? Probably. Yes. Because this overlay is transparent again, the webcam is not NADP. So let's change that because I don't like the other resolution game capture. And we add our specific window and we add our evil genius. Okay? And now we can same thing control. I may get smaller. Make sure to lock your things in place. Because if you don't lock them, you accidentally able to switch them and move them, which is really, really annoying. But now you see we're here, our gameplay is there because we're not playing it because this is our information screen. And docking is more important than playing here and alive seen here as well. This is just some gameplay, or you can move these things around because there's a lot of this in here. I would recommend not keeping all of this. So for example, this is a webcam porter or this is the webcam Porter. Let's just do a simple one here. So we're just gonna hide the other ones. 4. OBS Scenes: The setup OBS and want to know everything about scenes or scenes. How do you use them? How do you switch genes? And much more, this is how OBS looks like. And what we're gonna do is we're gonna talk about scenes, since it's a thing you see right here in the bottom. What our scenes, scenes are things you want to use for different purposes. For example, you have a scene with your gameplay in your camera, and you have a scene with just your camera. If we switch to my normal single election, which is a collection of scenes, we can see here, the array scream has an end on end. And if we go to another scene like the starting soon screen, then we see that it will say starting soon. We also have the gameplay seen, the full camera seen as stuff like that. So this is how you use a scene. You have different purposes for one seat. Let's go back to the clean one. As you see, I've made a couple of things here already for different tutorials. We can delete them. We don't really need them anymore, so we cannot delete the last scene because we need at least one scene. In this scene, you can add sources. You see them here. Sources are you microphone audio, your desktop audio, your WebEx screen itself, your camera, your game play. There's a lot of different things you could add here that are part of sources. All sources together form a scene. You can even add another. In the sources section. Let us say we have two scenes adding a second scene. And I want an image in here, for example. So here we go. I've added this image. Let's make it full screen. It's my YouTube image. So if you go to Scene one, we see that this scene is empty right? Now, what we can do is we can add the same image by going to image editing it. But if you want to have this exact scene where we have maybe more than just this image in to be copied to Cn-1, we could actually add a scene as well. So now we add s2 and we see it copies the scene. They're exactly the same right now. But if we add something in s2, Let's add another image, say this one. Let's make it small so you can see there too. And we go back to seeing one. You can see that it exactly copied seem to. So this is a way to actually just copy you ever seen a way of using this is putting all your alerts in one scene and then copying this scene would all your alerts through another scene where you want to use it. For example, a few have tilted filers because you're doing charity streams, but also have some elements alerts or owns alerts on. You can all put them in one scene and copy them in one go or without having to add all of them that one scene you want to use them every time. A really great use of this as adding scary alerts weirdly onboard. If you want to add them, you need to add them to OBS. But if you have a lot of different sound effects and your normal seen, this will be a little bit cluttered. So if you make a scene, it would just sound effects in it. You'll be able to add really quickly like that. You don't have to set up your own proof every scene we just really convenient, like I said before, I have a sink collection called tree stream. This is basically just another safe. So now we have these scenes, but if I go here, you don't see the things that we just made, but we see it as scenes that we already had here. So we can just switch in-between. It's good to do if, for example, you have two different streams, or maybe you have one for Christmas, one for Easter, one normal one or something like that. Or maybe every Friday you do something special. Then for example, you can have to sync elections where you switch in between and you can keep your normal cosine collection as this, we're also using a different one. For example, we have one here. We're going to rename this to replicate them. Then here we have one. We're going to rename this to gameplay. We're going to have some gameplay and subtleties. And this one we're going to remove here, this is going to be a webcam. I'm going to add a rep Cambrian quick at this in 20 in here. Boom. The webcam scene. Here we go. We've got our gameplay, we edit our gameplay scene, and we've got our webcam. So you would just a webcam. We can also have BR back screen and stuff like that, but I will just show it with two seams because that's enough. Fourth tutorial, okay, well, we want to do is we want to switch in between the scenes and do that by just clicking on them, you will switch, there were automatically switch life as well. You see this button here, studio mode. If you click on that and switch down, this will be what you see on Twitch or YouTube or anywhere you're streaming to the program. This is just a preview so you can start putting your webcam somewhere else without them seeing it yet because it's not on the right side yet. Just we click on studio mode again, you will go to life footage again. If we switch in studio mode, it will not switch on the right, so you just need to switch alive. Another way of switching scenes is with shortcuts on your keyboard, for example. We can do that by going to settings hotkeys. If we scroll down a bit, we see gameplay. This is the gameplay seen switch to scene so we can set one number one, for example, infrared camera and then PE2. If we click on Apply and Okay, now I president and put one keyboard, we go to these gameplay scene, I pursue. We're going to just see one going back to here. Those sort of doing it with the keyboard shortcuts is that sometimes in games you have the same shortcut and it will do something in games. For example, I've done 12 you when I was going to play Fortnite and then it will switching over pen. So that was not a good kid, that was not a good hockey for me. But you can always do with shift or something combined and they will work. You can be able to switch things like this. An easier way of doing it is zooming stream deck with the stream deck. He can't have the mistake of having the same shortcuts as engaged. So what we need to do for that is we either biased in the neck or have the stream deck app or a phone. And then I'm gonna show you how this works. You install the software from the stream deck, and here you see all kinds of buttons. We can switch scenes by going through this OBS section and unseen. And if we set the scene on clean because this is Scene Collection we're using right now. Like I said before, the one I normally uses truest stream, but right now we're using to clean one because this is just a tutorial and we wanted to switch to webcam, title us a webcam. You can also give an image to make it more clearly. We bring on more in and then this is game. This needs to be gameplay. If we make this smaller now, we can see we can press the buttons on a stream deck to game webcam. Game webcam because he does switches just like the shortcuts. However, the shortcuts won't interfere with anything else you doing on a computer. The other thing you want to know about scenes is between the scene switching, you haven't transitioned. Right now. It's just a faith. You can see that here, scene transition fade. We can set this on anything here. Slide for example. Now it slides. But what we can also do is we can set it on stinger. Now here we can browse a file and actually put a failover own offer it. And then when they fell passes by, there will be a transition going on. So you can have a tradition of your own that you made yourself. 5. OBS Browser Source: Here's everything you need to know from browser sources and OBS. What is it and how do you use them? So what's the browser source? So if we go here to OBS, and we go to sources, we click on Plus, we see Browser Source. So Browser Source can basically be any page on the Internet. If you click on processors here, we have to give it a name first. So I'm just going to call it test for now and click on Okay. You can see that this thing up here, this is just some information. You just added a browser sources. Browser sources let you display a webpage from the Internet or a local file and are commonly used for which is an alerts set the URL to depict your life to be displayed. So like I said, you can have a page on the Internet, but you can also use it as a local file. If you do that, you click on local failure and you can browse to a local file, for example, this YouTube image. And if we click on there, remove this and click on Okay, you can see that displayed, it doesn't seem to be displaying the transparency. I would not recommend doing it for an image like this. As you can also use image or media source, which worked better for an image. So we're going back to the properties. If you make a mistake, you can always right-click and go to Properties. Let's not pick a local file, so I'm going to remove this one local file and we can paste the URL here. For example, if you want to watch alerts or YouTube alerts, you can have bought like stream elements and have an alert source in here. So you can put the link in here. You can put this on 1920 times 1080 to make it full screen. But we can also put just any patient there. So for example, we can put our YouTube patient there. We just copy this page URL, go here and paste it here. There's some more settings here, which is the width and the height. You want that on 1920 times that any, we can move this custom CSS. This is if you can code, you can put things in here, but I can't go to, I'll leave that empty. So you can use a custom free rate. For example, charity, it was 60 FPS. And you can control the audio file OBS. This is important, for example, if you have alerts or if you want to play YouTube video, then the audio will come separately in the audio mixer here, which can be really handy if you want to put it louder or less loud. So we're going to click down here. We have shutdown source when not visible. So if you have a page on, it, doesn't really matter, but it does matter sometimes if you hear alerts or something go off, refresh pressure when scene becomes active. So if you did, basically what it's going to do is going to reload the page if you have trouble fridge or alerts or something like that, no picking up, click this, then make your source invisible and visible and then it reloads the page. Then if we go even further and page permissions, read access to OBS information, no, access to OBS. So this way it cannot interact with OBS. Here we can just have some information, read access to user information, basic access to OBS, offense x's are full access. Usually you do not need this and you can just leave it on read access to OBS K can refresh the page. We can click on. Okay. As you see, the YouTube page has loaded. However, we can't really do anything with it. If you right-click and click on indirect, this extra window will pop up and we actually interact with the page. You can see it moving here and I go over it. So if I click on Accept, you can see things here, chains, and I can actually pass things. You cannot do this in this screen, in this preview over OBS. But only in this thing that popped up if you go to a video now and I click on a video, you can speed up my video starts playing and you can see a search playing here too, if you don't hear it right now because I'm recording this audio. But you can see that in OBS here in test because this is how we call it the browser source test. We can see that this starts playing and we can have it less loud or louder. Okay, so we have this playing now, but we don't hear it ourselves. You only got to go to the street. So to fix this, we right-click and go to fence properties that we have here, monitor off. This means that you don't know He already in your headphones. If we click on this and put it on the monitor only, I'm going to mute it for a second because I'm going to get a little bit crazy if I hear it. Again, talk to myself, but now I hear it in a stream, doesn't hear it. However, if you record your headphones like your desktop audio, your stream does here it too. If you do not record your desktop audio, what you need to do is put it on Monster and output this way the stream and you hear it in your headphones. This is what processors are and how you can use them in OBS. 6. Record Gameplay With OBS Studio: Do you want to record your gameplay by OBS for livestreaming or recording purposes. I got you back. I'm going to explain it in this video. First thing we want to do is download OBS Studio. I'll leave a link for this I need in description, but I assume that most of you already done that. So let's go and hop into OBS. I've set up some things here already. That's because I'm actually recording this with OBS, recording this already. So there's two ways, will actually three ways of recording gameplay and OBS. One of them is just recording your desktop like you see right now. I am recording what I have on my screen. If you're wondering how it gets its activity feed and I chat here. But if you wanted to record just your desktop like I do right now and have everything be recorded on the screen. What we need to do is click on the plus here and display capture. I'm just going to call it whatever you want. I would recommend calling a desktop like I did here, but for now I just keep it like this because we already have a desktop catch capture. Here. We can say display one or displayed to you. We're just going to say display one if you have only one months or it will just say, if you've got three, it will say treat if you weren't you, because you are to be kept. So right now we can see our cursor, but if we do this, we can't see our cursor. But it's kind of nice in most games to capture your cursor as well. So make sure that's all. And then we click, Okay, now you see that it's capturing it here. I mean, we were already capturing it, so I'm just going to delete this one. We're capturing it right now. The one thing is that there's no audio coming through, so we want to capture the sounds that are from our PC. So what we do is click on the plus and add audio output capture. Here. You probably want to call it desktop audio, but for now I'm keeping it like this because we already have a desktop audio. And I click on Okay, here you can keep this on default for most people. But what do we recommend is actually searching Device which normally you hear your audio from, that can be your headphones for me to ask my mixer because I kind of mixer here for a lot of people that will be like real tech digital output. But for me, because it's my, my mixer, I have the road podcast or stereo here. Then I press Okay, now we get the second thing here does actually or output from my desktop. So if you would go to the Internet now, we can easily like this and unmuted if you have any suggestions for me. So this way my video here in the browser is actually sending out to OBS recording or in your live stream, it will be recording the sound as well. If you want to add a microphone, that's another story that's not the same sources. This you need to add a microphone at differently. For now, I'm going to mute this audio source because we don't really need this video and i'm, I didn't want to accidentally sounds in the video, so I'm going to keep this mute. Your microphone. What you need to do is click on the plus and add a microphone by audio input capture. Then here you see some of the ones that I have already named after your microphone. That's the easiest way, but because we already have that, I'm just gonna leave it like this for now. And here you can select which microphone you want to use. You probably already know. You already hear me. Now. Sorry for that. You just grab the one that you want to use for me to is 0 crest approach again. But if you use Ogata Mike, you probably want to go for the link or do you got a row on which is the wave one or tree? If you have the Blue Yeti, go for the one that's called Blue Yeti. If you got whatever you use being like, it's probably called USB itself. If you're using voice meter, you will see something like here with the forests me during it. Removed given otherwise you keep hearing readable and it's really, really annoying. Probably open smell too bad. But yeah, but that's the way there's two different ways that you can still do. One of them is window Capture, and one of them is game capture. Let's start with game capture. Let me sorry, game up because I can show you, but it's better if you have a game to show you it, right? I'm just gonna start his plans. You hear me my headphones on because I hear in the audio is gonna start playing. Okay, So I have started the game. I'm going back here and what I'm gonna do is I'm going to add a game capture. Again, capture. I'm going to call it planet Sue. I hear all the sounds but you guys aren't here to, here we're going to capture a specific window and we're going to click on planet X2 here it is. The reason why I click on specific window instead of just normal capturing it is because otherwise you don't have any control. You don't know which source is going to grow up. And it's really annoying if it grabbing the wrong one. So I do recommend just picking the right source in here. Gonna make this smaller for you guys. This is normally fullscreen, but because otherwise you don't see anything, I made a smaller real quick and then we just click on Okay, here it is, The rest of it is fine. And now we have the game in here. Like I said, normally it's just full-screen. However, you guys can see the rest of my OBS, so that would not be really nice. Zoo. So the game is just running here. We have the sounds. If we do this, go back to the game. The game, there are sounds. Then there's a turn method we can use. So I'm going to delete this for a sec. We're going to add to the window, window Capture. Now we can capture, for example, planet X2 and then capture method. We probably want to set it on Windows graphic capture when a stone up. As you see, we got the planets you here again, I'm muted the audio again, but the audio works. We just did that already so we don't have to just sit for every method gives us the same for every method. But now we have the game in here and it works. You might need to sit on the Fitbit for seven, for Windows seven if you've got a little bit of an older see. But for me it's a Windows ten. This one works for all we know. So you could have discord or anything like that captured like this as well. Not only for games, sometimes some methods work and sometimes they don't. And there's not always a good reason why something doesn't work and the other one doesn't, but just try out which one works the best for you and which one you feel the most comfortable with it. Just note that this tree methods to do it because sometimes one of them doesn't work for certain games and that's it. That's how you add them to your OBS and that's how you can start streaming if you want to learn more about OBS, I do have a whole playlist about it, so make sure to hope in his playlist and I will teach you a little bit more. You can get your stream rolling. 7. OBS Cropping And Moving Sources: Let's say you want to add your camera, for example, that we want to make our camera smaller in OBS, you hold Control and drag them into proportions. So now it doesn't change proportions. We can also use the arrow keys to move it around if we just want it slightly to be moved. And if you want to cut these pieces off here on the right and on the left, what we can do is hold Alt and dragging. Now we just have our face, face camera so we can edit like this. You can see all the green edges here, our crops, the red one is the original output. So if you hold Alt and drag out, you see this becomes retinal. This is how you can crop the camera if you wanted to fill your screen, right-click Transform, Fit to Screen. And if you want to reset it, transform, reset transform and research to the original output. 8. Setup Audio In OBS: How to set up your OBS audio like a pro. Let's jump into OBS. And then the first thing we're gonna do is click on Settings. In the bottom right, we see the selling step and we go to audio because that was where we're going to talk about right here. I have desktop audio and so forth that all disabled y, true? Why would you disable it? If we do disable them, we can manually put them in. This gives us more control over the audio here fence. We definitely want to pick our monitor device. This is where we're going to hear our OBS things on. So for example, if you have alerts coming off because you're getting a twist sharp, or because you have blurb set up, for example, you want to hear them yourself as well. And this is the device that OBS is sending the audio too. For me, that's the wavelength sound effects panel. If you do not use any mixer, stuff like that, what you might see is like real tech digital output, real-time audio. That could happen if you have a real tech audio card and if you put your headset right into your computer, okay, So we've done that. And now what we can do is we can set our audio person. If you have a pure black screen and if you have a talking screen, for example, if we go to sink collections tree stream, we can see here we have a starting soon scream. But in here this only music, there's no microphone. I can talk, but you see the mic is not being picked up. This means that I do not have to mute my microphone. If you go to the Gabe, Let's see. No, we don't seem to care of it because I'm using it to record this right now. Can see that I'm Mike is actually being picked up here with the link. Again, if you go to the screen, we can see that the mic is going away and there's no cell in here. So how we do that? How do we add your microphone to one scene? Let me go back to an empty collection. And I'm just gonna make a new scene. We're going to add our microphone. We're going to click on a plus and click on audio input capture. Here we're going to call up Mike. And in here we're going to select a microphone you're using. I'm using this rope broadcaster, but I'm using it with the Ogata wave XLR, which means that we can use either raphe XOR or we can use the stream. If you use the Ogata software, I would recommend clicking on wavelength stream unless you do not want to record anything else then you Mike. But for streaming, I would recommend this one. If you're using a different microphone, the microphone will pop in here, like it's like Mike in here. I've got a wave XOR, but you can also have the microphone off the scene and 20 webcam, for example in here. So find a microphone that you're using and click on it. I'm just going to click on wavelength stream right now. And okay, we now have a microphone. We can see that speaking a little bit so we could put it down or up here. We can go to Properties here and go to filters to add some filters on it. If you use the Elgato software, I recommend doing it. India Cara software. If you do use a mixer and it comes with software, dude in the mix of software or do it in the mixer. If you use a microphone where and this is not the case. You could add a limiter here. You can add a noise gate here as noise suppression or any other things you would like in here as well. Now we only recording to Mike and we do not record the desktop audio. We want to do that because if we have things playing a game or something that God, we want people to be able to hear it, right? We're going to click on the plus output, capture him and I call it Desktop sound. Then here what we're going to select is the thing you are hearing things when. So this is gonna be the same as the monitor device. Most likely. So where do I hear tanks with hearing it with the wafer link headphones. I'm basically here again with my headphones. If used a wavelength software, what will happen is you have this, you basically hear yourself through here already. So because you already have your headphones here, we hear ourselves through here and we can move these things around. So you do not need this because the browser things will come in here and they will send it to true the stream output. If you select stream instead of Mike. But if you do not use mixer audio, what you wanna do is you want to select the thing you hearing things through. Again, the real tech audio headphones is probably the one. If you put it into the jack of your computer, will eat every coal like speakers, this is a virtual audio cables, so it's not the one. Unless you use something that uses virtual audio cables. If you use speakers, you got like speakers that you can use probably, or this is my TV screens, so this is my monitor. Then we'll basically record all the sounds that go to a monetary. But we want to record everything that goes through our headphones. So I'm just clicking on headphones right now and now it's recording everything that goes through my headphones. If I would play anything on my PC, the stream, we'd hear it. So besides the microphone and everything, your desktop, you might have alerts as well. Or you might have a game that you play via capture card. If you add those, what will happen? So for example, capture device. And I will be dropping the H.263 S. There we go. It's Becca now because I'm not having this facial nerve. But normally I have the switch on here. And now we have this audio coming in here. However it is, audio is just going to OBS and not so you have four engine. So you want to go to Advanced Properties. And what we have here is really important audio monitoring for the ACC. As what we wanna do is we want to either set it on Moser only or Moser and output motor only means it's only going to send it to your headphones if we put it on there. Remember, we actually capturing desktop sound. So it's going to my headphones, which is being recorded. So it's going to the stream. If you do not record decibel sound, make sure to put it on monitor and output. If you have alerts, when a browser source, you can do the same thing as I dip at the H.263 S here. But it all monitor only and record it with desktops out operating on Monster and output and don't record your desk, no sign at all. And this way they also hear it. You will hear it and they will hear it on stream. You can do this with anything. You can also do that with videos and media sources. You can have the video play for yourself, for both you and the stream, or just foreign stream. Just for a stream is basically the standard option. 9. Make Audio Sound Good: In this video, we're going to talk about audio and why it's so important to have good audio that we're going to talk about audio. First of all, most of you might have this one, the Blue Yeti. It's not the greatest microphone, but it will do its job. The biggest mistake I see students make with this microphone is that they use the wrong pattern with this microphone. You will get this manual. And in this manual, it actually tells you about all the patterns right here. It tells you about the cardiac pattern. This is the way you want to use. It's the one would kinda looks like a heart. Like it says, is meant for podcasts, voiceover or vocals and instruments. But the most important to you see this picture of a guy front of a microphone. It only records on one side of the microphone, decided that you were talking in and it doesn't record the rest of it. So right now for this microphone, it will only record decide the site. I'm talking to this side. So there's a lot of sound coming from this side of the microphone. It will be picked up bless there from this side if you don't use the Blue Yeti, but using different microphone, check which pattern your microphone has and where you actually need to talk in. Because some people talking decided the microphone when the pattern is on this side, if you have a shotgun microphone, you will actually record at end of the microphone and then obviously you need to talk inside that end. So check the pattern of your microphone to make your microphones on good. Your room needs Sound good. This is Michael makes sense. But if you go to your bathroom and you start to sing in there, you will hear an echo. If you would, record a microphone and dare, you would hear that acro on the microphone as well. If you have a room without a lot of furniture in it, this same effect will happen if you want to get rid of this effect. If you have problems with dead, makes sure to get more clot in your room, blankets, cushions, and curtains will actually absorb the sound and make it sound better. I didn't really have that prolonged because I got a bed behind me. But if you do have a problem, just like some pillows and blankets on the ground, you also want to make sure that there's no loud things in your room like a fan or somebody drilling? I mean, that one is obvious, right? If there is something loud in your room and you can't really get around that. I would recommend you using a noise gate. Wait, I just recommend you using your no escape. What this does is it doesn't pick up audio until a certain audio level. If you go back to OBS, we can see my voice here in this section and we can see how loud I'm talking right now. I'm mostly between 20 and minus ten days the bells. So if I would say that everything underneath minus judy, they see bells would be cut off. My voice we will not be cut off. But everything else that is a newsroom will be cut off. So when I'm not talking, there's no sound being picked up by the microphone. But how did we get this into OBS, the cogwheel, and then go to filters like an A-plus and adds Taskade right here we can see open threshold is minus 26. That is minus 26 on here. And this is 2526 is like around here. So if the sound doesn't exceed minus 26, which is right here, it will not go on. You will not hear anything. Closing threshold is minus two to two, which means that if we're above minus 26, restart recording. But if we're dropping down under the minus 33, we're going to stop recording this voice. So if you having a lot of noise behind you and it is above minus 32, then it will keep being on. After you talked to my Qsp being on after Utah player to close threshold value. If you want to turn the noise gate off, just click on the icon to turn it on and off. The next thing we can add here is getting what this does is we can actually make the microphone sound louder. For example, if we would sound really, really quiet all the time, we would only be around minus 40 days. T-bills, we can bump up 20 days. He bows to be at minus 20. Be aware though, you don't want to use too much gain because it's going to sound really bad. If you might make some noise, use noise suppression. There's real removed instead ignores off your microphone. Hopefully, if you played horror games, you might have screamed till the sun and then just talked a little bit more quiet because you were scared. This can be really hard for the viewer, where all the sudden the sound gets so loud. There's a little trick for this and it's called a compressor. Just add the compressor into the filters. And what this does is that if you're going to scrape that it will be around the same amount of volume messed up. You're going to talk really, really, really quiet. It's probably better that I put this in a comparison thing because when I first started streaming out a preliminary hearing, the game sound where I heard it's super loud and Chet couldn't hear it at all. So for me, I had to blow my ears to let them here to GameSalad, and that was not really an option. Find a way to go around this though. It's called voice meter, banana. Banana as a virtual mixer. And you can basically set the volume for your output device, like these headphones to be a lot lower than for the stream. One of the things a lot of people do as well as sitting far from the microphone right here, my microphone Wouldn't sounds good. And sit right here. This sounds all better to try and see it as close to the microphone as you can. Donate your microphone because you're sitting so close your micro startup picking sounds really rarely get a pop filter that really cheap. If you don't like this big disk next to your face, you can always get like one of those windshields, legacy, My mic is actually on an arm. This makes it possible that if I tap on the table, the vibrations of that Don't go too much into my microphone. I'm also using a shock mount. This is a device that hold my microphone into rubber bands and makes it almost impossible to get the vibrations from my table into my microphone. So a typical the table, you will still hear it, but you don't hear it. True that April, if you having a microphone on your table, this is happening a lot more. And especially with typing on your keyboard, it might sound pretty bad if you can't afford an arm or a shock mount, I would recommend you use a piece of cloth or maybe like one of those big mouse pads. If you put your microphone on top of those, it will vibrate a little bit less, but the best way to make a microphone sound good is too dark, larry, if you're mumbling and I don't know what you're saying. You can have the best microphone of the world, but I'm not going to understand what you're saying anyway, there's speak clearly. And if you're not a native English speaker, don't blame your x and because you can try and speak clearly anyway, like I do a silver annexin, some words might sound weird to you, but I speak clearly anyway. I used to do all these things wrong. I uses sound horrible, but I also just didn't have charisma on the camera. So don't worry, you can improve it. 10. OBS Hide Audio Sources: Did you know you can actually hide audio sources flexible here. This one comes with the camera, but we're not going to use the audio from the camera. So we can do is mute this and then right-click on here and we can hide it. Now we don't see it in a mixer anymore. The reason why we want to do this is that if you have sources that you don't use, they'd be here. You can see the sources that you actually want to look at. For example, your desktop audio or your microphone. If we hide them, then we can still see the desktop audio and a microphone here. If you want to find the back right-click and unhide all back. 11. OBS Browser Sourse in Audio Mixer: If you have a browser source and you want to display in your audio mixer here, what you can do is you can go to the audio source, right-click, go to Properties. And then here, if we scroll down control audio via OBS, this way, there will be new audio sources like this coming in. No case that the volume for the specific process or is louder or less loud without having to change your desktop audio. 12. OBS Groups: I'm going to show you how you can group things together and OBS. So for example, your webcam and your webcam border so you can direct them at the same time, but also at them to multiple scenes at the same time. So you don't have to add everything individually. So there's two ways of grouping things together in OBS. One is Nessus scenes and one is groups. Let's start out with groups. This is a clean OBS besides from the fact that I have a little sources in here that I don't really use. So we're going to make a new source. And as a source here that's called group. This is a group and we can call it whatever you want, for example, audio. Now we have an empty map. It's kind of like infile Explorer where you have a map with cells in it. But this time you have a source with source, a map source. Now we're going to click on plus and we're going to add some things. For example, audio output device, desktop audio. We could select Desktop Audio, for example, your headphones. Then we can also click on the plus and add a microphone. Luck. I'm going to add my microphone and click on. Okay. Now as you see these things up here above the group, what we can do is we can direct them into group like this. Feet. We can see that they're in the group by clicking on the arrow here. Now we can turn all these things offer on by clicking on the eye or individually turning them off and on. Well, we can also do is start with the false. We click on a plus. For example, at an image, I'm going to just browse for an immature real quick and we go, Let's see. Let's add something else. A camera maybe. Let's add the o Carlo. Come here and click on. Okay, because now we have this image, which we're going to drag it on top so we can actually see it. We wanted to be like in this corner here. This is the place we always want it to be in. What we're gonna do is we're going to shift click on these both, right-click and then click on group selected items. Now these are grouped together. Again, we can see that by clicking on the arrow at the group, we can rename the group by right-clicking and click on Rename webcam. Now, if you don't want to move any of these items, you can lock the group. But even if these images are not locked, they're still locked. So if you look at group, everything in a group is Locke's, is unlocked a group. We can also look to image, but we can still move it because we unlocked the group. We could click on the webcam like this and then use the webcam if you want to move to a webcam, but not one to move the image. We looked at image. There, I click on the webcam only and then we can move to a webcam. If we looked in both, we can not move any of them. And if you look at group, we can also not move any of them, even though they're all locks. You can always give to each group recolor by right-clicking setColor and setting a colleague here, I would recommend giving all the things inside a group the same color. And this makes it clear that this is all belongs to the webcam tab. If you run out of colors here, you can also do custom color. So now we can click on the webcam one and we can drag it around and we can make it smaller. But the Tdap here will always stay in place. What if we make a new scene? Now? We can click on the ad and we can still at group. And as we see the groups that we just made have appeared in here. And if we click on Add Existing and click on webcam, the same group will reappear. Why is this something that you want to use for web cam, for example, if you want to keep adding your webcam and you have the overlay and stuff in it. You can edit in one go like this. But also one of the groups we made was for audio. So if you have sound alerts you make from your desktop audio in one group, you can immediately at them like this to nursing that you just made things that I would recommend grouping or alerts, send effects, webcams would webcam borders and other audio things because those things you often need together. Okay, so like I said, there are two ways of doing it. The second way is actually nesting scenes. What does this mean? Let's say we're going to delete everything out of this group. Remove more we can still do is get everything from C9, which is the webcam, any audio, we can get that into syntax here. What we can do is click on plus and click on scene. We can add an existing one at C9, that's the scene and click on, Okay. Now what we see is that everything that we set up a C name here is being copied to see ten. However, like you see, it is luck together. It's all locks together. We cannot move any of these individual things. We can stretch it out back so it will fill the screen. There we go. But it will be locked together. That is because we have black spaces around here. It made black spaces around here too, As you see the red border. And it's later than where it is Freeman's. The upside of missing seems like this is you can apply filters on the scene and it doesn't have to apply it on a source itself. So for example, I want my webcam to be like around circle in one of the scenes, but I do not want that another scene. Normally if you put a filter on the webcam, it will change in all the scenes. However, if you do a little trick, we have here camera around. As you can see, I don't have my camera on it because I'm filming it. Read it right now. But this is where my camera and normal columns. This is the camera around, and this is a camera fool. Is this fool. You will see the whole camera in here. However, does is the same source. What I did is here you see camel Camera Raw. Here I put in my camera. This is a scene which RAR, the actual source in it that we make hammering not in use. We basically click on Plus at seen every ad Cam Link Rotter it. This scene is only completing Campbell and grow. There's no filter on the screen, even though it is, Raul is no filter on it. And then we have gambling mask and cabling mass is basically copying Cam Nick Norton use because normally if you put a filter on a scene, it will change the actual scene as well for some reason. So here we have Kim link mask. We have put a filter on here that it is a circle. If we removed this is not a circle anymore. So this makes it a circle. However, because it changes the original source, not use, it changes this one too. However, there's no filter on this one. So to Camera Raw, we'll stay with the same. Therefore, we can use the camera mask one for the things where we want it to be masked and the wrong one for the things that we want the full camera to be displayed in. So that's a definite upside of using the scenes, the scenes instead of the group. However, you cannot move anything and don't have control over the scene anymore because it's only in the other scene. You're literally copying a scene. Does everything you do. 13. Elgato Stream Deck Switch Scenes In OBS: How to switch your scenes in OBS using the stream deck. Well, we need to make sure of is that we downloaded the software by going to a gathered.com and then go to Downloads here, select your product. That's the stream deck. It doesn't matter which stream deck they're all the same. And then Windows, if you have a Mac, select Mac, but I recommend having windows. And then download it here by clicking on this. So then if you open that, you will see this, you probably have this image here in the middle. You can just delete that, that's just a guide. There is so many things here on my right. Some of these are installed. If you click on this menu here, you can actually get rid of some. If you have too many that you don't use. Okay, So where we need to click on is OBS Studio. It might already be unfolded for you, but this is the full board as sin. And then here we have seen, we can drag that in our stream deck. It doesn't matter where you drag it on. You can even drag it later. And the title, we want to make it a title of this scene we switch to, for example, gameplay, game play. Okay, Now it's clear that this is a switch to the game play scene. Then here we need to select the collection. What is a collection? Let me show you here. Sin collection. You can see that I have different kind of scene collections. Now we're on clean recording because I'm trying to just record my screen and show you guys things. But normally I stream on this one. So if I want to switch a scene in my normal things, I should select true eStream. But now we're doing clean recording because that's where we recording it right now. Maybe like default or entitled for you. If you never made one, you click on that. And then the scene right now, clean desktop plus MC. So if we click on that, it will switch to this scene. You can see all the other scenes here. If we go back to OBS, you can see that these are all the things we have. This is a really messy scene collection. I know. This is another one that I see where this is just the one that I mess around with it. So you can see that we can click on these and it will switch to them. But we can now click on this button and it will go to this clean that surplus mic. If we physically click on that button, it will go to this scene. If you want to switch it to another scene, we need to drag in another scene. Again. Camera for example, camera clean recording because that's the same as this one, right? And then we're gonna go to Scene six. Now we can switch between sink six and the scene with the mic and desktop audio by clicking on camera gameplay, camera cabling. If we click on here, we can also add an image, Double-click on it. We can add an image. I'm just going to put this 45-year for a second that has anything to do with my camera. But at least you can see there's an image now, and we will see that on the stream deck itself. Now you can differentiate this button. There's a little bit quicker, but I hadn't having to read them. That's how simple it is used for streamed back to switch scenes and OBS. 14. Connect Twitch With Stream Key: In this video, I'm gonna show you where you can find your Stream Key to stream to twitch wasn't going to show you how you can put it into OBS to actually stream. So what we need to do to find a stream key is to go to twice delta v. Right here we can click on an icon and then go to the creator dashboard. Left here we see preferences. Click on that and go to channel. Here the top we see primary stream key. This is where if I use streaky, we just have to copy this. So click on Copy. So what we need to do now is put us in our OBS. This is our OBS. I disabled the preview real quick because otherwise we get stream section. To add this, we go to settings down here and click on stream. Here. We can put our stream key. We just drew this and Control V to paste it or right-click and click on Paste, and then make sure to click on Apply. We can set our server here as well. For me, Amsterdam is the closest by, but look at the surfer that is closest to you. If you have troubles at your suffering, you can always change the server to something that is also chemicals you, if you had another stream, Keith, for example, from YouTube or from a stream, or from periscope. You can set that here to the actual stream key from that platform. If you ever want to change platforms or if you want to Dustin out. I also want you to make sure of is to go to video and set the resolutions here. I usually stream on 720 be just because if you don't and you don't get transcoding, which is quality options. People with bad internet careful you're streaming along, so I recommend if you are not a partner yet to stream on 720 p. So we set this base canvas on 1080 P and the output on 720 P. I cannot change these right now because I'm actually filming this video with my OBS and therefore I can change the quality options we're actually using it. 15. Add Guest In OBS: I'm gonna show you a couple of ways to edit guest in OBS. The first method we're going to use is use OBS Ninja. For this, we're gonna go to a website called OBS dot ninja. Here we click on Create room, then we enter a room name and choose a password. Pass word. Apparently we have an insecure room name because people might guess it gets considered director but not other guesses feel if you clicked Add, then people can't see each other, but only you. The director will be performing as well appearing in the group scenes. This means that you also gonna be on the screen. You can turn this on if you want this to be inside the OBS ninja. Otherwise you can leave it off. You can leave the video codec own default editor rooms control center in a director role, notice is what we need to set up. The guests. Guests can use his link to join the group room. So this is what needs to get in here. In OBS Studio software to capture the group video mix. What this means is if you ask people in here, they will appear in yes 12 tree. And for this link will be a browser source that you can add to your OBS, where all these guests will appear in one screen, in one browser source. If you have auto add guests in there, then people that joined final link immediately go in. If you have everybody in there, it could turn this off to make sure that new people won't get in your stream. So we copy this link by clicking on Copy link or just copying it. And then we're going to send this link to your guests for now, I'm just gonna do it on my phone. I'll be my own guest and I'm joining with my phone here. Oh, nice shot. Camera, the front camera, that's fine. Default is my speaker. We don't have to say the password. We can click on Start. I'm just going to flip my screen real quick. And we're going to put it down. We can see on a PC here it's coming in because I'm doing it a bit my phone and do it via Wi-Fi. You can see that the screen is a little bit blurry and stuff like that. I recommend joining with a computer that doesn't wired network, wired Internet connection, because then you don't have this blurry screen. What we can do is we have this here, which is the link for multiple, which is me here. And maybe me as a director, if you tick that box and other people that joined with the link. But we also have myself here and we can put on solo talk for example, that you only hear that person, the microbiome, the microbiome for right now. So that would sound horrible. We can highlight the guess if there are multi-view and stuff again. But there's another link here. If you're copying a solo link, then we go to OBS. Let me make another scene and we put them in here as a browser source, hopefully guest, guest. And now we add the link in here, kit 1920s times 1080. Did you do there we are. We got here myself. If you went to regulate the audio, right-click and properties control audio of IOPS. Okay, We can mute this because that was really annoying. And we can see ourselves now in OBS, like I said, don't do this via wireless network because it will look awful, but it works by this. I guess we don't have the best WiFi here. I do everything on your wired anyways, so you can add multiple guests like this. Every gas in here is going to have a separate box and you can separately copied her link and put them in there and you can divide them as you want, or you can copy this group link if you want them automatically like groups and stuff like that. The second option for doing things, for example, joining in this court or in any other software you want to in capturing the screen. Let's say we want to use Discord. For example, we have this quote here. You want to capture somebody who is streaming. We turn on the camera. Now it isn't loading because I'm using OPS and it's using my camera in OBS. So if you are wondering why your camera isn't working, don't have your OBS open. If the cameras in there or don't have the camera open. So if you talking into scored, just keep your camera off or use a different one that's not connected to OBS. Let's say this is a person just then we're gonna go to OBS, click on window Capture. Then we capture discord. If we direct with old right-click Transform, fit to screen. Now we have this person big on your screen. Those I do is if new people joined to this court, these screens are going to move. So make sure that it's a private channel that more people can join. Other thing you can do is click on this, pop out, and this makes this a little bit bigger. Or you can hide non video participants, guesses a little bit bigger and you are really small if you want your audience to see what's on your stream, what you can do is start the virtual camera here. And if you go back to Discord, for example, we can set our camera on the filter or camera. Now we have a black screen because we were filming a black screen like you see here. But what you have in OBS right here will be going to your video feed in this chord. And this way they can easily see what your streaming and no one they are in this screen. You couldn't do that with any other video calling program as you can just set it as your webcam as long as you have virtual camera on and OBS. Now we're gonna go to the target version, which is the one with Skype. By using NDI. For this one, what you need to do is go to this website to plug-in from OBS NDI. I believe that down below in the description to make it easy for you. And then we go to the download, make sure it's a close OBS. And then we're going to download the Windows installer. We're gonna save the file and we're gonna run it. Another thing you need to make sure is that you have the Skype desktop version. If you do not have that one and you have the one that King windows, make sure to uninstall the one that came with Windows and search for the desktop, one on the internet and download that one installed app. Look in, Go Finish, Finish. That's a check If we installed it correctly, click here on the plus with sources and if you see NDI source, then you have installed it correctly. Are we gonna do now is we're going to open Skype. And what we're gonna do is we're gonna click on an image and then go to settings. Then here we're gonna go to calling and then click on earth fenced and turn on aloud and the AI usage. Turn it on. Now what we need to do is we need to click on meat, no, host a meeting. We can change our camera here to OBS, virtual camera. So make sure that this is only again. Now if we change that to a virtual camera, this means that the audience will see what you are broadcasting. So they can see you because this u on the stream basically, but then without delay meeting name tests for YouTube. Now this link here doesn't link that you need to share with others. We're gonna copy this and we're gonna send it to other people, again using my phone. So I might use the internet quality might not be good. Let's make sure that you use in genetic via a wired connection. And now we're gonna start the meeting. I have my mic muted in here, and we're gonna join a meeting here on my phone, turned on the camera. Hello, like you see, it's just a wireless connection that isn't so great. So we have the same problem on my phone. It's a little bit less with Skype, I see, But yeah, it still doesn't look good. So make sure to use a wired connection. And what we can do now is we got me joining tree. Ember doesn't actually mean his name. We can go here to OBS and we can add NDI source. No any isobars, guests. The guests here, the source name will be tree. That's me. There we go. That's a little bit small. Okay, so what we can do is right-click Transform fit to screen. I know we're a little bit bigger. The downside of this as though there will be the Skype logo here at the top. So that will be the ******** on your screen. So you need to have a layout that goes a little bit over him. The upside from it though is that the guests come in separately. So if there's multiple people joining, multiple people would get their audio levels in here separately so you can turn down somebody on its own. That's a really, really big plus of using the MDI is from Skype. If you want this to rotate true people that are in your call, what you can also do is instead of setting it on a person, so I said it all myself right now, you can also set an active speaker and it basically changes to whoever is talking, just like You are used through from Teams or Zoom calls like that. If she wants her core Teams or Zoom, you can do that window window Capture. I explained in the last step, like I said, I recommend to put on virtual camera. What do people can see what's happening in your stream? 16. OBS Image Rotation: Do you want to make a social media rotation or do you wanna show sponsor she have on your stream? Maybe you want to make a slideshow from other pictures. This is a Turiel on how to make a slideshow where pictures rotate in OBS. So if we go here in my own collection and we go to start here, you can see that I have distinct this is my YouTube tree. You're there, so I'm guessing, you know, but they actually rotate. This is a social media rotator. If I go to the Properties, you can see there's a lot of pictures in here and they rotate to them. So how do we add it? So I'm just making a new scene real quick here. And then we click on the plus. Then we have image slideshow right here. If we click that, we can call it whatever we want. I recommend calling it something that you can remember. For example, if you went to social media, handles to go to call it social media promotion or social media. If you want your sponsors to rotate to in God something like sponsors social media. We click on, Okay, this window pops up. We've got a couple of settings here. I'm gonna make this a little bit smaller. Always play even when not feasible. Okay, what does this mean? The images are rotating. So if you make it invisible, the source, you don't see it on your stream. However, the images keep rotating. So to keep going on the same base, if you click on it, we can set different settings. Stop when not visible, restart when feasible, makes it reset it if you hide it, it will start with the first picture again, boss one, not visible, unpause and visible. If you make it not visible and visible again, it will resume where it left off. Slip mode, automatic or manual. Automatic is the easiest way which makes these slides go automatic. That makes sense, right? So next image you will play after a certain amount of time, we may all you need to click a hotkey every time you wanted to switch. So for social media, there's no really convenient because you need to click every time you want to show a different one transition. You can set it on cut fate, swipe and slide. This is just how it looks like. It will go to the next picture, time between slides. Now, it takes eight seconds, I believe thousand seconds is the second row, eight seconds, and the speed is 0.7 seconds. I would just try and mess around with these things and see what works for your slideshow. And here we have loop, you probably want loop on. This means that it starts over when it did the last picture. If you don't put it on, it will stop the slide show after the last picture. Which might be good if you're doing some kinda like PowerPoint presentation, but not when you're showing your social media or smaller height when slideshow is done, if you don't put it on loop, it hides the source. If you do that, a good way of using this, for example, is if you want your slideshow to only start and stop, you can put source visibility on your stream deck. If you click on it, you can start the slideshow and it will automatically hide it again at the end, randomized playback. This randomizes the images so they don't appear on order for social media, it's really important. Boning size, aspect ratio, automatic. This is ten ADP, which is just normal resolution for screens, I guess keep it on automatic and will work. And then here this is the place where you add the images. So if you click on the Plus at foul, we can find an image, image rotation. And I click another one. You can also add a directory. We can add this one its whole, but I'm going to just do them one by one another file, Instagram, okay, so I'm going to do with tree for now. We can make these higher or lower by clicking on one and I'm using the arrows here on the right side. And then this thing also brings up default explorer again. So again, we can decide how fast you want it to go here. Click, Okay, we can see it's already in progress. We can hide in and started. It restarts at the moment, but I can, we can set those settings and their properties if you want to change anything back, right-click, go to Properties and we're back at the settings that you've seen before. So this is how you make a social media rotator or an sponsorship rotator, or just an image, any image you want rotator. 17. OBS Animated Background: In this video, I'm gonna show you how you can make an animated background for your stream. If you were to make it animated background, what we need to do is to have an image that can loop. We can either find one on the internet or may call ourselves. I'm going to make one myself right now by going through Photoshop and making it 1920 times 1080. Okay, so now we have an empty canvas, and I'm just going to make it a color real quick. So now we have a colored background, but we don't have anything on it yet. Let's add Here we go. Two dads in the house, and I'm just going to add them in here. Then we're going to copy him a couple times. There's probably better methods of making sure this loops. But I'm just going to do it like this for now. Kinda thing is this needs to be like as much spades everywhere all the time. I'm not really good at it, but it doesn't matter. It's just for the sake of the tutorial for now. I'm not going to put too much effort into this one. Doesn't look too good. You can make it like really different. I would recommend you make it different. And this just for illustrating purposes, I want to make sure that you guys can see what it does. So I made this a quick image. Now we're going to save it as I'm just going to save it on my desktop right now. Cow background. And make sure that you save it as a PNG. Now we're gonna go to OBS. Hello. I'm just gonna make a new scene for now. I know I have love scenes in here, but it does just because this is where testings and I show things. So you guys, we're going to add a source and that's gonna be image. It doesn't matter how you call it, but right now for me, it doesn't really matter here for the tutorial, so I'm just going to leave it empty. And we're going to add this image here. Okay, so now it's a static image. But what we can do is we can go to filters and click on the Plus and scroll. Yes. Now if we do this, we can see it starts cooling. We can make it super fast or not fast at all. We could go both ways. We can also lead to go for it locally. But because I didn't make the cows perfectly, you see that there's more space here than it is here. Because I was like lazy and I didn't make it perfect. But if you want to make something like this, make sure that the images you add are the same distance from each other. So it does loop perfectly. So we can make it goes fast as we want. Let's make it not too fast. Here we go. Because otherwise if we make it too fast, oh, it's just really distracting. And now we could just add something on top of it. So for example, if you want to add our camera, boom, make this smaller and put it in the middle like this. Now we have our camera with an animated background behind it. 18. OBS GreenScreen: You want to play a game on stream, but you don't want your whole room to show you what a green screen, but how do we remove the green screen in OBS? I'll show you. In OBS right now, we add our camera. We're going to right-click it and go to filters. What we see here, audio, video and effect filters. You will have this if you can write, also has audio. So if you have a webcam or a camera that has iron in it, you will see these divided, but you don't need the audio for this. If we click here, we can see that is all audio things here. We do not need that, the ones down here. So effect filters, we want the chromatic here. We immediately see something happening. That is, our OBS is going to show, guess that's what we're recording underneath here. So what we wanna do is we want to turn it off first. Now we want to collect this on custom and select a color. We can pick a color in here. And we're going to pick a little bit of a brighter color. And I'm going to put up the saturation a little bit. If we don't need back on VC, you'd have we all gone right now. That's not good. Okay, So we went to play with the similarity. We can see that we picked a wrong core. You know why? Because now I go way too much so we can see our skin is going away now. That's not good. What we can do is select the color again and try and play with this. It doesn't immediately apply. So if you click on Okay, we can see it doesn't immediately apply. We can pick another color and click on here. Let's see if it works better. Some cameras do work better than other cameras with this, we can see this works a lot better. It's all black now, which is the core is supposed to be. But it could be that a little bit of shine through. I think we are a little bit chance for it, to be honest. I've entity dad, we're gonna make it to that real big. It's okay. It's just for, for checking takes now we can see that we shine through. So it looked like we were good because there was black behind us. But as soon as we have something behind us, we're not actually good. Okay? So we need to go back to filters and we need to start working with this again. So we need to be at least this. But we still have that green screen going on a little bit. So we need to select the color and make sure that we pick a different color. I could be dead right now. Isn't lit well enough because as you saw it as super dark here right now. So if you have this, it could be that you need to light your green-screen better. So you basically want to keep playing around until you have the green screen nicely setup. Then when you have it setup why you click Alt and you drag everything in until you just have the part you are with the green screen. So for example, right now, this is us with the green screen. You can see that the green screen is still there, so we need to work a little bit more on it. I made some adjustments right now, and this is a little better. But you really need to play with the green screen every time you change your lives, your green screen will look different. I would turn my lights on right now in my room. We'll see that this is going to start being really weird. So you could have the skin like this that is super light, that could actually green-screen away everything here is where the green screen, everything here. That's just what you apply after you green screening out. So now you know how to remove a green-screen in your OBS. 19. OBS Studio Mode: This is the ultimate way to use studio mode in OBS Studio, what is through your mode? If you go into OBS Studio mode here, if you click on this, you'll see these two things, these two pages. And this is actually what pseudomonas. But what can you do in studio mode? A lot of cool things. You can change things in your stream without them being seen in the live footage. So we have preview here. This is where we can change things. So for example, we can switch scenes here and here in the program. This is a live stream. It will not change like a C was still on the starting soon screen. This means we can mess with things about here without messing with it. Here. This is normally where camera, by the way, oh God, oh, no signal, but I'm using it to film this right now, so it's not connected. So what we can do is we can have our camera, the camera scene. We can transfer that to the program. If you click on transition here, we get our normal transition. So this is the standard transition you've set. We can see it's right here, right now. We can also just click on cut. So for example, if the game scene here we can click on the gut and it immediately goes to the other side, cut, cut, cut. We can also feed it for 30 seconds and it goes with a slow fade, or we can fade it in ourselves manually. We can add more transitions by clicking on the plus here. If for example, we can swipe, we click Swipe and then it swipes. Instead. We can also set the milliseconds to be longer or shorter if you wanted to swipe to be longer or shorter. But we can also do is click on the cogwheel here. Here it says duplicate. This means that if we are on the same scene, for example, this is the same scene and I start moving things here, or start adding things here. Let's add an image. For example, tea, then I click on Okay. You see this is the same scene. However, we don't see it in the program. Yeah, even though we're having gotten a preview here, if we click on transition, we're going to see here too, we can still move it around and position it through. We can cut it through. You can see it moves later than when it actually moves here. If you don't want it to be Preview only, but immediately changed here. We can click on here and then it changes on both scenes. So to duplicate scene is just so you can move this around. Well, this is still static. We can also use duplicate source and then we can change the source to something else. So for example, properties. We're going to click on this, and obviously we have a different source here. We change the source, but this is still the same cow right here. Even though change the source. What shadow? If you do this, it takes a lot more CPU power where you don't do that. So what would a duplicate source swaps Preview slash output scenes after transitioning. So this means that if I undo this, because, but this isn't the same scene. But if we click on this and we go to starting soon, because you will see this was actually the program before. So this was the live stream and it just switches the position of these two. Switches the position, if you uncheck this, it will stay on the same page. You've always got from left to right. So you've always got affirmed a preview to the program. I mean, if you have this tectorial and it will also be from right to left. This is a diffuse same videos you see here, but it doesn't start playing until it's actually into life footage. There are some more settings that you need to wear off. If we go to Settings here, and then we go to general. I mean, we're already in general, but we scroll down. We see studio mode right here. These are some additional settings you can set for LA studio mode transition to see, well double-clicked, let's apply them. If you double-click, it transitions. This is a way to quickly transition to a different scenes. So double-click enabled portrait vertical layout. So it just changes how the layout looks like and it makes it different. I mean, the things become really small, but maybe if you minimize your tab a different way or have vertical monitor, it might be easy to work with this setup. Show prefer your program labels. These are just the labels up there. If we uncheck that, we see they're gone, but it's better to show them. To keep you as a reminder that this is just a preview and this is what you see live on stream. 20. OBS LUTs: In this video, I'm going to teach you how you can make your camera look better and using lots, lots, lots like an image that contains a lot of colors that you can override over a photo or a video. This will change the colors in the photo or video to make it look different, better. Hopefully, the first thing we want to do is add our camera. I'm assuming that you already done this, but we're just going to add my webcam in here right now. Then right-click on filters. This is where you click on the Plus and find LUT applied lot. If we click on here, we can call it whatever we want and we can search for on a PC. However, you probably don't have one on your PC yet. You can just Google free loves, and you get a lot of free lots available to you. Here are fonts from lots and I can just download them. Boom. It will open them as a zip. Maybe they will open differently for you if you got them from a different website. And here I have all the lots. So these are all lists. I'm just going to copy this folder and now I'm going to paste it somewhere where I can't remember where I left him, so I'm just going to move them. Now. If we go back to OBS, now we can browse to where we left him. I put them here, lots, lots. And then there's a lot of lots in here. You can click on one and we can see that the camera is changing. You can also just put them in the lab folder and the OBS, then you can find them quicker. And now we can just estimate. This one is really ugly with my camera. This one is okay. I really, it's really dramatic right now. I would just test. So this is like an old school and I guess if you like old school, so if you have that as a team for a stream, there will be a good one. I legacy, they do give a different vibe. Some of them are similar in this package, but it really depends on where you download them from, how it will look. The logo itself is kind of like this P and G where you have like different cores. I don't exactly know how people make these things because I'm not into card grading or anything like that. However, I know how to add loads and make it look different. And it doesn't have to be pretty because this isn't pretty, but it does look different. We can also apply the amount a little bit less, so just the normal camera. And if we can apply a little bit of it, we do have the effect, but we do have the effect as dramatic. Know, it's just I like, I think I keep just like this has dramatic this not so much. You know what I mean? So this is how you make your stream look better with a look package. 21. Connect Your Nintendo Switch To OBS: You went to connect your unintended switch or in attendance which all lead to your OBS to stream from him. I can help you with that. You should attend the switch on your PC. What you need is a capture card. I'm using this capture card, which is the Elgato HD 60 S. There's also some cheapo capture cards on the market, but I have been using this one for years and I have never had a complaint and I didn't know how the T-Bills hold up. So you see some cables coming out. This cable is a USB-C cable to use B, which means that this one needs to go into your PC, into your computer, make sure it goes into a 3, use baseload because otherwise you might have trouble running things. Then this one is an HDMI cable that comes from this side. There's also an input here, but we're going to talk about that later. This one needs to go into your screen. You don't have to do this as you can watch it gameplay in OBS. And you don't have to use this. But if you want to watch on TV instead of on your OBS, you can use this one to connect to your screen. The upside of looking in OBS role-playing is that, you know, when something is in front of a UI element. So it's the only guys that there was an HMI in here that I haven't talked about this also in Jack input here, but we do not need that for the attendance switch. If you want to use the jack entry point, you need a chat link or shuttling Pro. So what do you need to put in this HDMI entry point units and the switch doc my into with shock, obviously put the dog in the power supply because otherwise it won't work. You can only play ducts, okay, so you need to make sure that you switches duct while playing. This HDMI cable comes out of my switch dog. You see this HDMI cable that comes out with my switch dog goes into the in, in on this side and the capture card, we put it in here. Then if we put the power supply in and we put a switch in here, we have connected to the, to the PC. You can start connecting it with OBS. Make sure that you have your switch on and you capture card is attached to your computer before starting OBS, because otherwise it might not pick up the capture card yet. You can use your pro controller or Joy Cons. You can still attach them with the USB to the doc. It doesn't affect recording with the capture card. So how do we add artists and switch to OBS? Where we need to do is click on the plus and click on video capture device. We're going to call this like our gastric artist called from ADHD 60 S. Then here we're going to select the AC. Now it takes over my screen so you guys can see anything. So I'm gonna make it smaller so you guys still see the settings and everything I put in. So if you do have any problems with the resolution already FBS, we can set this on custom and then change the resolution and the FPS, but normally this will work fine. Okay. And then we click on Okay, No problem we have is that you guys probably purity audio, but I do not hear it. How are we going to fix that is go here to the cochlea offense properties and click on monitor only here. Now, I will hear it and we can rerouted. So you hear a truly desktop audio as well. Because then you hear what I hear. If that doesn't work for you. You can also put it on a monitor and output this way. You can hear it outputs to the stream as well, but you have a chance that it will echo like that if you haven't edited desktop sounds yet. Which needs to do is plus an output capture. For me because I'm using the wavelength software, it's input should capture. And then I'm going to click on vaguely extreme. I'm going to mute it for a sec. Otherwise you hear my, my double. But now appeared here and you hear the game true there as well. 22. OBS Virtual Camera: You want to join a discord call with the output of your opus so you can see your camera or you can still switch scenes while showing them in your discord. That is possible by using virtual camera. I'm going to show you in this video how we do. As you see, I'm recording this at OBS. So there's a little stream section. Sorry. First thing you want to make sure is that you obs set up like you want it to. Did you get your camera to the scenes that you wanted to that you set elysium's scenes up like you wanted to? If you done that, we have the scene like we wanted to. Let's, for example, say this. We're going to do virtual camera, start virtual camera. It will just be like a recording that has the start and stop button. So now if you click again, we will stop it again. We will turn it on. Now we can go to Discord. Now we'll go to the settings, then we go to voice and video. Here we can set our voice, which is correct already for me, but we can also set our camera. So what we're going to do is we're going to click on the camera here and set it on obvious virtual camera here. We can test a video like this. See, we can see the same screen because I am recording got in over us right now. So if I make this smaller, you can see that this is the scene that we have here. If you would ask something else, you would see that in here too. But I can do that because I'm recording this would obs and then you can see the other things as you see, it's displaying this right here in the video thing. So if you have a camera there, it would also display the camera here. If you have images there, it will also be displayed if you would switch scenes. It also switch scenes. So next time you join, it will be using the OBS output. If it doesn't. What you can do is join a channel. Start putting the video on right here. It works to on camera and now it works already. But if it does speak during one, we can click on turn of camera. But there's a little button here. We can click on that and select virtual camera here as well. So we do not have to have it on the default one. If we click this little arrow, we can switch to the obvious one as will turn it off. Just click on Stop Virtual Camera again. Make sure that you always have obs open with the virtual camera on. Otherwise it does not work because it needs to be open and it needs to be running. 23. Use Your Phone As Webcam: In this video, I'm going to show you how you can use your phone as a webcam without paying anything, without downloading anything for Android and iOS. For this video, I assume that you use stream labs, OBS, OBS, or OBS life. If you don't use any of these, I hope you're using a Steering program where I can use browser shores. If you use something like Deb, you can use this. So the first thing I want to do is go to OBS dub Ninja. This is a website and it looked like this. The next thing we do is we grab her phone. There's my phone with an old picture of me and my boyfriend. What we're gonna do is open a browser. This is my Chrome, but you can do this with any browser. We're going to type in OBS dot ninja. We get the exact same size as we have here. What we can do now is add your camera to OBS. If you click on that, it will ask you to allow your camera and your microphone and just allowed us right now what we see me from a weird angle, like above there and there. And so now we're flipping. We can actually use her phone both ways, but you can do here is click here. And we can actually also, instead of the front camera, use the back camera if you like that, but I like to use this one. And now we just click on Start. And you get this link at the top. You see that link. You can just copy that link copied. And now you can send it to yourself. So let's say we send it through Discord or email or anything. They will send it from your phone through your actually PC. I put you guys down here for a second. What we need to do is we get the link to our PC with any any software, doesn't really matter what, as long as you get it via email, via whatsapp, via your Discord, anything. Then we go to OBS. Here in OBS, I'm using OBS to record this as well, so I disabled the preview real quick. And what we need to do now is click on applause and Edit Browser Source. We can call that phone and click. Okay, and here we pasted, decode the link that we just had. I make it 1920 by 1080. Think about the numbers per se and we can just remove this. And then okay. No, I didn't see it yet. Let me enable a preview to see. Oh yeah, now we can see that I'm here. I don't really have a good position for these guys. Seem to be seem to have a little bit of lag right now, I think is because of the Internet. Boom. I've said it on my mobile data now and it's actually a lot smoother. Like can see. This is kinda the same angle as the camera has right now. So this is a little better. I would definitely recommend that if you have trouble with your Wi-Fi trying to do it on a mobile data, although it costs a lot of mobile data, of course. So be careful with that as well. But yeah, that's fine. You can add some filters if you'd like to. So that's how I add my phone when I leave my phone for streaming for to show something. And I really like it this way. Or you don't have to install anything on your phone. So that's kind of like a plus for me. My phone is basically what I use here to actually share my phone screen. You can always cut this out. You can always like mask it out. So for example, if we would have this, this green and we would go to OBS, we get to the low stream sections. But if we would add game capture, we would add that one screen specific window. My phone. Don't know which one of the two it is, so it'll check out this one is it? And we would actually go to camera. It will be our camera and we couldn't mess this out. I'm just going for you guys here. We can mask this out by using old and I'm dragging it in. And then we have a camera. We can use this as a webcam. I guess. It will work like that. I think that's actually pretty good. It doesn't work good full screen, but this is something that you can use as well. They use it as a camera. If you don't have a camera, but you do have a phone, I just think there's plenty of options when you can afford it or when the prices go down a little bit, you can always switch over to a camera that I use like the Canon 5D. Or you can get a webcam like I used for up there, which is the Logitech C 920 24. Pronouns in Twitch Chat And OBS: You want to make sure that people see your pronouns and sit him right into a chat or you went to read them and make sure that you don't make any mistakes yourself. I'm going to show you how you can get pronouns in your foot shed. The first thing you want to do is download an application for your web browser called a flanker phase. Here it says download for Firefox. So you click on that and you can connect with your twitch. Then if you go back to twitch, then here in the top you see this Frank Interface Control Center. If you click on that, you can open the options from Frank or phase. Then it says search. I thinks I'm a little bit lazy, so I'm going to type in their pronouns. So when you type programs here, it will have this extension, this add-on coming up. And here it says Enable. If you've done that, you can see that there's new options here that you can set batch color. You can change the color of your batch, for example, pink if you want to be as she or her, or because you just like pink. You can also change the colors per batch and he could be light gray, for example. You can also just leave these on the default settings. You don't really have to set them. And when we have enabled and we can see people's pronouns. Here's also a button that says settings that will bring you to the same menu here, the pronouns, if you click on website here, it's going to load in and we have to look inward at Twitch. And then here we can submit what our own pronouns are. She, her. But you can select any of these and then just click on Submit. Now too upset knows what your own pronouns are. So this is how you set your own pronouns. And so you can actually read the pronouns for other people in chat. Now, if I go back to twitch, click this away and I type high, you can see that I'm a sugar and it's pink because I made it pink. You can also just keep the default settings and it will be transparent if I believe so, it'd be displayed in OBS itself. Oh, let's put it off white mode. I've got to chest here. One of the stream elements 11 is doing that I just added as a rigid, if you want to have the pronouns in here as well, what you can do is go to Settings. You gotta go to stream here. And then if you have good accurate with the stream key like I do, there's nothing more here, but we can also connect account. We're just going to prove this and now we're connected with our count. And then here we see twitch jet plug-ins and add-ons. We can have it on non better, especially Frank or phrase or a better Twitch TV and frame your face. Make sure that these are insult for your browser TO. Otherwise they don't work. And then we click on Apply. Now we see that two things have opened here. I'm just going to accept the cookies for now. This is just the thing or we can change our stream information. We can use that if you want in OBS. And we also have gotten a chat here and go into your chat settings, go to non malt, sorry, mine is in Dutch, but the things will be the same position. And at frame your face control center here we can set the chat preferences, so we just type pronouns here again and click on Enable. Now you will see that the she, her is in my chat. 25. Capture Gameplay From Second PC To OBS Without Capture Card: In this video, I'm going to show you how you can capture the gameplay from one PC and set it to another PC without using a capture card. To do this, we make use of OBS ninja. Therefore, you need an Internet connection. I recommend that you put both PCs on the land connection. No Wi-Fi, please. The reason for this is that essential gameplay to the other PC via the internet. So the better your speed is, the better your Internet connection is, the better this will go. Let me show you how you do this. You go to OPS dot ninja. Then here we see remote screen-share into OBS. If we click on that, boom, we can select the screen to actually share. I'm going to select my first screen because that's my left screen where I play the games on. Now we can see a stream section of our screen. If we copy this link here, we have our browser search link for OBS. Right now, I'm recording it without sound. This it says No Audio Source detected. What it records is my whole left screen. So please don't put something weird on the left screen when you're sharing your screen to somebody else because you're going to see literally everything on the screen. What we need to do now is we need to go to OBS. There it is. And then add a browser source by clicking on the plus and click on browser. We type PC screen. Visit here, 19201920 by ten ADP. And then we can delete this and then click on, Okay, what happens is this sharing my screen which is OBS right now. So we're just this frame section. What we can do is hide this and you don't see that in the screen. That's kind of annoying. I believe we're looking at a little bit different than Firefox. If you having trouble with the Firefox version, try and use the Chrome version. It does work in Firefox as well, but I believe he can't hide the thing. I'm not a 100% sure. So right now we see the gameplay of the screen, but we're also recording it, so we just see giant stream section. But what you can do is you can send this link, just put in here to your friend who is streaming from another PC or just you're on a PC and then copy and then paste it in the other PC. And this way, they will get this, what you see here, which is our stream section. They'll get that on their screen. And this will be extra gameplay. Know, not what we're seeing right now. It will be Derrick screen and not our own screen. The quality of this is quite good. I have used it on my desk stream a lot when Nim and I were playing the same game at the same time where we had a double screen, thicker box for the hello, there's almost no delay as well unless you're probably at the other side of the world. But if you do happen to have a capture card and you're sitting in the same room, it's probably better to use the capture card for the quality wise. But if we know in the same room, you can't really use a capture card and this would be a good alternative to use. It's also just a one-way street. So if I record my gameplay and send it over, I didn't see anything from the other person. So keep in mind that you go into a discord color, something like that so you can actually hear their response and know what's going on for you. 26. How To Display Your Heartrate In OBS: In this video, we're going to show you how you can get a heart rate all your Twitch stream. First thing you want to do is sign up on pulsar dotnet. You need something to measure your heart rate when it's a heart rate monitor, like one of these examples for heart rate monitors, you can use Arctic coast pole H6, the polar each time and the one who ticker I didn't know what it off my head. Sorry, I had to look but I'm using the Kosovo coast Bu, postpone close Bu, selling off this program does not work with something like an Apple Watch or other smartwatches. What we need to do is actually where it is Moser. So let's get to set it up. This is how you set it up for female breast area just on the left side for Guy just as full as you can through your heart. You don't want to wear it over your shirts. I'm gonna do it under my shirt real quick. Under my shirt, right here in the same spot. But now we can actually measure it because it's touching my skin. What we used to do now is get the Pulse app. Just go to your mobile phone and download it from the Play Store or the Apple Store. When you did download this app, make sure your Bluetooth is on. This connects your monitor to your phone. Now we need to log in with a password and name that we got from the website. So we go to step called install mobile application is here, e-mail and the password here, I'm obviously going to make sure you guys don't see my password because that's kinda awkward. But looking with that so it can connect to your phone. Your phone and your computer are connected. If we go into the pulse-width app, we can search for this device, this heart monitor. For me, it was called something like 808171 through five. If you have the same thing, you probably have a really long quote like this, this role. I had a lot of unknown devices there as well, which I didn't know what it is, but they seem to be in my area. But it's this weird code. Probably if you're the same as I have, if you have a different one, you might see something different as your heart monitor. If you click on there, you can see some information about it. So for me now, it says heart rate battery and connected. And it also says if the battery is full, So let's kind of convenient to know if the battery is almost empty or not. Now you can see your heart rate already in your phone, which means that it's connected. The width does this is to just do random, a lot of jumping jacks. So let's go. Your heart rate should go up by now unless you're some kind of supports proton, you probably didn't notice anything but then we're calling her new more exercises. So when it connects it, we can go to configure widgets, urinal upside here, we can choose whatever we want. Let's go for a default one. If we copy this link behind the default one. And we posted in or OBS as a browser source. We can actually use it already. It's so simple. It's actually like that's it. But you can also make some adjustments. You can change colors and you can change which heart monitor will display in your stream. We can change the thickness of the lines. We can choose a course. There's a lot of variations here that you can grab. For example, this Cyberpunk one looks pretty cool. You can just easily change them by changing the link in your browser source by just editing them instead of making a new one every time. So it's easy to just grab a different one if you want to play a different game. 27. Change Webcam Shape: In this video, I'm gonna show you how you can change your webcam in any shape you want. So how did we get those cool webcam shapes? Well, I have my webcam in a circle with a circle webcam border. And a lot of people asked me, How do you do that tree. It's actually a super simple. What you need to do is have a mask where everything is black except for anything you want to show. For me that's a circle. So I have one wide circle on a black square, square, a triangle. So let's say we've got a webcam at the scene at 20 here. That's me when I make myself small just so you guys can still see what I'm doing. Otherwise, it'll just be on the whole screen. And let's say I want this to be a different shape than it is right now. What I do is I right-click here on CNN 20 and then go to filters. Now I'm going to add an effect filter called Image Mask blend. And then here we can browse for any pictures. Here I got my mask are choosy is just black circle and I click on it and now I am a circle. This is how simple it is to add the circle. I'm going to tell you how to actually make a mask. How we can make one is you just start a new Photoshop document. You could technically do this in paint as well if you want to, or you can start it in game four in Affinity Designer or something like that. It doesn't really matter which program you use, but let's make a new one here. 191920 by 1080. There we go. Now what we do is we just go here and we go into all the way black. And then just fill this up. And then we want to grab white all the way wide, the f's. And we can take a brush. For example, if we would start drawing. This would be how do webcam would look like? All the yellow is the place that the webcam will be. The black is gonna be what is cut off. But you can also do that with the shape, for example. So we can make it. Obviously we need to fill the shape with white. There we go. But we could have a square like this. And now it's just a square. But you can get really creative like this. And if you're not that creative, I got you covered as well. 28. What Options Does The Stream Deck Give You In OBS?: Record is just recording in OBS where you normally have that Start Recording button. That's what does though. So if you click on here and we can make sure that we start recording by this button. You can also pause recording by clicking on this button, deleting them or right-click and delete stream, the structure stream. So if you want to make a multiaction with record as stream and it will start recording and streaming at the same time. Replay buffer. Okay. So for the replay buffer yes, to go to Settings here. And then we go to output. If you can't see this screen, make sure that you said your output mode on advanced. Then we click on replay buffer and we enable the replay buffer. Here we can set how long we want to replay buffer to beat. This is how long the clip is gonna be, let's say 60 seconds. This will be a clip of 45 and B. It says we can apply and okay, so what happens is you start replay buffer here. If it's not appearing research OBS and it will reappear for me. It didn't immediately appear, so I didn't have to restart OBS, start this replay buffer. It starts recording the next 60 seconds. And then when there's a second over here, we've got 61 seconds. The last second will be removed. So it will only save the last 60 seconds of what just happened. And then if we click on the button in the stream deck, it says replay buffer. This is turning it on and off. Here. We can save it. So if we click on this button now, it will save the 60 seconds that we had in the replay buffer. You can find those replay buffers in the same place as the recordings you are making. Then we have seen collections here. You can switch between seeing collections scene that's just from one scene to another. Source visibility. So we can toggle something from being seen or so. So basically, the eyes go on and off and you can see them or not see them. Than audio mixer. We can interact with normal for audio sources in OBS like that, media source control. This makes sure that you can pause and stop a video or boss and play, or pause and restart or just stop the video. If you have a longer video that you play in OBS, you can interact with that with the stream neck. Now, studio mode, this will activate the studio mode so we can study. You won't hear this, but we haven't programmed this is the preview. You can also transition this from this side to the other side. But the preview, we can basically switch genes without it actually switching in the program, so in the live stream. So this is a really neat options. So it's really great to be able to activate that with the stream deck now that we have preferred to program, this is the left side. If you are doing something, you can immediately switch that to the live stream by pressing this button. This is something that professionals use often. They will preview something and then switch it to live. And that's how you can do that yourself. You can also change the filters. So for example, if you have a filter in your microphone that makes you sound like high pitch or low pitch. You can trigger those with us, but now we can put them in a multi-action to trigger them with some funny graphics around it. There we have screenshot here with this button, we can make a neat the screenshot in OBS of the thing you're streaming, you're streaming output and transition. We can transition from one page to another one. We can have a cut feed the stinger swipe. You can set a different transition. So just basically how it looks like when you go from one scene to another scene in OBS. 29. OBS Chat And Activity Feed: I should see my OBS. You can see there's a chart here. And if I connect this back to George, you will see that there is an activity feed here to where people who followed and the check right here. If you want to get this, you can go to OBS life, That's website where you can download the plug-in for your OBS, where you have the activity in your stream chat in. 30. OBS Project On Monitor In The Back: If you have a screen behind you or monitor and you have that connected with an HDMI cable where you can do is just full project or one of these sources on it. So full projector and you click on the screen that is on. Or you can even do that with a scene. And you can feel protector that scene on a certain monitor. So you can choose whichever monitor you're going to use in the back. This way you can, for example, have alerts or your chat be displayed behind you. 31. OBS Replay Buffer: Then we have to replay buffer. What this is is you click on Settings, then you go to Output replay buffer and you click on an April replay buffer. If you do not see this, I click on the simple and then click here on offense. Here we can set the amount of replay buffer. This is kind of like Twitch clips where you can save the last 60 seconds that happened. So if you put six here, the last 60 seconds, there'll be safe. If you put up more or less here, that amount will be safe. We click on Apply and Okay. Then you see this button here. If you don't see it yet, just restart OBS, we click on this, then the 60 seconds start running. This means that if you press a hotkey urban on the stream deck that says Save replay buffer, we can actually save those 60 seconds and they will be saved in the same folder as you save your recordings. You can find them by going through Settings output recording. And then it says here, video RA for me, for you, I'll probably say something else because that's where you saved them. 32. OBS Disable Preview: If you don't want to see this Preview, right-click and then disable preview. It just says Enable Preview button, you click it again, then disables it though you don't see the stream section. So if you're recording, then you don't see that they're recording. Recording. Another pro of this will be if you have a slow PC, this costs a little bit less effort for your PC because it doesn't have to show you real time what is happening in your stream. Downside is that you don't know what's happening real-time on your stream. And enable it by clicking on it again. 33. OBS Multiview: Then we also have multi-view. So what we can do is we go to View here. It says, most of you feel screen windowed. If we click on multi-view window, we can test. This is kind of like what I use on TV. These are all the scenes. This is my preview, kind of what you would have industrial mode here as preview and program is what its life, the racism scenes down here. And if we click on them, you see that they actually switched the scenes. You can also see the name of the scenes underneath it. Away for cream, no chroma. But you can see multiple scenes in here. You can see where you can switch to and how they will look like before switching to them like this. 34. OBS Course Project: Thank you for joining my course on OBS for a course project, I want you to set up OBS, full-screen camera scene and gameplay seen where you can run it at a BUN back screen. And I want you to set up an end screen as well. These are the basic things that you need to keep your stream running. Bonus points if you come up with more scenes and if you set them up with your stream deck, I love to see how you guys set up your OBS, recording your scenes and go through them so I can see how they look like Bozeman, the course project for everybody to see. If you haven't done so yet, make sure to read the scores so others know what you thought of it. And I hope to see you in one of my other courses.
