Animated IRL Overlays & Designs
Content creators film themselves in their everyday life and share it live with their community. IRL streams are becoming increasingly popular on Twitch, YouTube, and the like. These streams can be very different and may look very different as well. In the meantime, there are real IRL experts among the streamers equipped with the appropriate devices and always ready for the next dead spot with no connection. We have put together unique IRL overlays for you for the perfect visual background for this kind of entertainment. Whether it's your shows, walking, outdoors, or making music - with our overlays, you'll be perfectly prepared for your next great IRL stream.
What are IRL overlays?
Since 2020, the IRL category, which includes Just Chatting, has been the most popular category on Twitch. Do you want to become an IRL content creator who shows their daily life, likes to chat with viewers, or even travels the world? Then you'll join many other IRL streamers and content creators on Twitch, YouTube, and more.
To avoid getting lost among all the ambitious streamers, there is one special feature guaranteed to set you apart from the rest: IRL overlays. IRL overlays are designs created specifically for this type of streaming, ideally to match the content being streamed. Designs can vary from classic plain overlays to futuristic and stylish designs.
The IRL overlays sit on top of your actual content. If someone scrolls through your category and sees many creators with a simple facecam, your thumbnail with overlay and facecam will stand out from the rest. Create a real eye-catcher with the IRL overlays and immediately make your IRL stream stand out!
What is included in an IRL overlay package?
IRL overlays with matching labels
Overlays are the designs and frames you put around your stream. They are the graphic elements your viewers will see live most of the time. Overlays give your content an appealing design and theme that attracts specific groups of viewers. IRL overlays are designed so that it doesn't matter if you're starting to stream or already a Twitch partner. With matching banners or webcam frames, including placeholders for "Last Follower," "Last Donation," and more, the IRL overlay packages cover everything you need for your stream.
Start, break, end and offline banners
Do you jump right into your stream or wait until viewers are in your stream? You can solve the latter with a start scene. This allows you to start the stream, prepare for your stream at the beginning, check everything and welcome the first people in your stream. After that, you can directly start your actual content. If there is a break and you don't want to stop the stream, you switch to a break scene. This way, viewers know you'll be right back. You can say a proper goodbye or prepare a raid on Twitch with an end scene. If you turn off your stream, remaining viewers can find the essential information about you in the Twitch offline banner, such as stream times or social media channels. All these scenes and the offline flag can also be accompanied graphically with the help of theIntermission banners. These are integrated into the IRL stream packages and fit perfectly with all the other overlays and designs.
IRL stream alerts
The importance of a good IRL stream alert cannot be overstated. If someone subscribes to your stream or follows you, that person most likely wants to be noticed by you somehow. A good alert is a key to making that happen. If a subscription or follower goes unnoticed, they may be disappointed. With an eye-catching alert, the viewer gets the attention they deserve. There's a good chance he'll support you again in some way afterward! A single alert can even lead to a veritable flood of support.
Animated scene transitions
If you're streaming IRL content, you'll need to transition from your main content to another scene at some point. You may need to take a break and want to show in the stream that you'll be right back. With an animated, eye-catching scene transition, you can provide an impactful transition to the next scene.
A complete design for your IRL channel
Maintaining a consistent design is essential, even outside of the actual stream. That's why our IRL Stream packages provide you with IRL overlays for your stream and static designs for your Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook channel! If the design is a common thread throughout your stream and channel, viewers will remember it.
Which IRL overlay suits me?
To visually enhance your IRL stream, think about which area your content belongs to and then decide which design suits you and your stream best. For example, if you like to stream music, OWN3D is sure to have suitable overlays for you, as well as for talk shows and much more. Have a look around the store and get inspired!

Frequently asked questions about IRL overlays
IRL streams include almost everything that doesn't belong under the category of games. IRL streaming is very varied. Creative people always create something new for their viewers for their IRL content. An IRL stream can include interviewing exciting people, filming yourself doing yoga, or letting the audience witness the creation of a new song. The Just Chatting category, which has been popular and most streamed for years, also counts as IRL.
You can integrate the IRL overlays in different ways. Programs like OBS Studio, Streamlabs, or others help you stream the content to a streaming platform of your choice. We'll briefly explain how to set up your IRL overlays in OBS Studio. When you first open OBS Studio (no matter which version), it will automatically create an empty scene for you to add sources. This scene will appear in the stream precisely as you set it up. You can drag and drop the overlays into the background (i.e., drag the file you want to insert into the scene from Windows Explorer into OBS Studio) and then edit it as you wish. Alternatively, you can use the "Sources" dock to include the overlays as a media source. See ourOBS tutorialfor a detailed tutorial on how to set up IRL overlays for OBS Studio.
If you are looking for a free IRL overlay, you can download our free streaming tool calledOWN3D Pro. This tool is a plugin specially designed for OBS Studio and makes streaming easier for you. Helpful streaming features, chatbot, and OBS sources support you in streaming. In addition, we also offer five free overlays and alerts in the tool, which are installed with one click. So you can get started with the perfect stream right away.
You can stream without an IRL overlay. Almost everyone at OWN3D has streamed before, also without overlays, but a good overlay can help you to get one or two viewers more to click on your stream, which will help your stream grow.
