What are StreamElements overlays?

What is included in a StreamElements overlay package?
StreamElements overlays with matching stream labels
Create an unforgettable livestream experience for your viewers with StreamElements overlays from OWN3D. Whatever you want for your stream, our StreamElements overlay packages cover everything you can imagine. The overlays fit over your camera and gameplay like a template and make your content look unique. There isn't only space for your content: You can also integrate the actions of your community into your stream with labels like "Last follower," "Last donation," and more to make them stand out.
Start, break, end and offline banners
Pick up your fans with a start scene right at the beginning of your stream, with a BRB scene, let them know you'll be back soon, and properly say goodbye to your viewers with an end scene. You'll also find all of these scenes in your StreamElements overlay pack! With different, memorable scenes - also calledIntermission Banner- your stream becomes even more professional, showing you care about your stream!
Get notified live in your stream when you get a new follower, subscriber, donation, or similar: With StreamElements alerts! Not only do you get to see your audience's actions immediately, but you also give them a lot of attention in the stream for a moment. This often leads to a natural flood of support! Our overlay packages always include the appropriate stream alerts, including stream sounds. So they fit perfectly to your overlay and your overall appearance.
For professional content creators, switching between individual scenes in the broadcasting tool is already part of everyday life. For example, you can connect these individual scenes with so-called transitions by switching from the just-chatting screen to the in-game screen or break screen. When using animated stream transitions, a stimulating effect appears when switching so that the change is not abrupt but smooth and professional. In our StreamElements overlay packages, you receive great designs and animated transitions, which perfectly round off the entire design concept and turn a standard stream into an actual professional stream.
A complete design for your channel
Besides the fundamental design elements for your livestream, our complete packages also include many useful other gimmicks that you can use to beautify your entire channel and bring it in line with the rest of the design. One of them are the so-called stream panels. With these, you can give your Twitch bio a personal and individual touch and equip it with various buttons such as links to social media, donation page, or other channels (YouTube, etc.). If you stream on YouTube or Facebook, the StreamElements overlay packages also include banners you can use for your YouTube or Facebook channel. The included banners and panels design always fit perfectly with the rest of the package design, creating a nice symbiosis and a seamless concept that will delight your viewers.
How to add overlays to OBS from StreamElements
OBS Studio is the best-known and most used streaming tool, but our StreamElements overlays can also be used with other streaming tools like XSplit or Streamlabs. If you want to use a StreamElements overlay, you need nothing more than a free broadcasting tool such as OBS Studio and the OWN3D overlay all-in-one package downloaded after purchase. The setup for almost all programs is effortless, but in this small tutorial, we would like to show you the single steps of the setup with OBS Studio and StreamElements. Since StreamElements and OBS Studio are free to use, everyone can get started directly with the tutorial without taking long detours.
Log in to StreamElements with your preferred platform's account. Signing up is free and can be completed in a minute. You will then be taken to the StreamElements dashboard. Here you will find the main menu on the left side. Click on the "Streaming Tool" menu and then click on the tab labeled "My Overlays". This is where you can add, manage and edit your overlays.
You will now see all the overlays you have created in the overlay menu. You will only find an overlay here if you have registered. Therefore you should add a completely new overlay. Click on the button "New overlay." In the overlay editor, confirm the automatically recommended resolution of the overlay (1080p) by clicking on "Start."
To create a new overlay, click on the blue plus icon in the lower left corner and select Static / Custom -> Video. Since the newly added overlay element is still blank and nothing is displayed yet, you need to link the new video element to a corresponding file, i.e., an overlay element from the downloaded OWN3D design. Click on "Change Video" and on the next screen on "Upload".
Now you can click on "Select Files" in Windows Explorer to find and add the desired file. Select the design element and click "Open". Now the new overlay has been added and the new browser source can be added to your streaming tool. Finally, click "Save" and then the link button to copy the URL for OBS Studio.
Now start the broadcasting tool OBS Studio. In case you haven't downloaded and installed it yet, you can find the download linkhere.
Once you've started the program, it's time to add your StreamElements overlay. To do this, you must create a scene within the program and add a source. Conveniently, OBS Studio already has its scene set up when you first start it. If this scene has already been deleted or you want to create an additional scene, you can easily do this with the plus icon in the scene area.
Now add a new browser source to your scene by clicking on the "+" in the "Sources" dock and give your source a name. In the next window, you can enter the URL in the "URL" box. Now you should see the overlay in the preview screen. You can still change the resolution of your overlay, pay attention to the resolution of your monitor. The resolution should always be the same as the overlay in the StreamElements editor - 1920 x 1080 px. Click OK to confirm, and you've inserted your new StreamElements overlay!
