If you want to add an overlay to OBS, just follow these few simple steps below. If you need more detailed information, we have also made a detailed tutorial and video for you: Twitch-Stream Overlay Guide
There are two ways to add your Overlay to OBS:
- A = Import PNG files
- B = Import a complete scene in OBS.
In our stream packages you will mostly get the files you need for both ways.
A: Adding a stream overlay by adding PNG files and text fields manually
- Click on “+” in the Scences box and name your new scene.
- Use “+” in the sources box to select the category “Picture” and create your source.
- Search for the image file of your overlay to insert it.
- To add a frame for your webcam just repeat step 2 and 3.
- Select the category “Game Recording” by clicking “+” in the Sources box and create your source.
- Select “Capture specific window” and look for your game in the Window box afterwards.
- Make sure that the sources are in the correct order (e. g. overlay before game recording) and change it if necessary by using the arrow keys in the source column or just via drag & drop.
- To add a webcam, click “+” again in the Sources box and go to “Video Recorder”.
- Once you have included the cam in your scene, you can select it in your preview, make it bigger or smaller or move it within the scene.
- To integrate notificatios for follower, donations etc., select “Browser Source” with “+” in the Sources box and insert the special link you get from providers like StreamLabs (link: www.streamlabs.com).
B: Import a complete overlay scene with one click!
- Unpack the overlay package and install the fonts you find in there
- Start OBS Studio
- Import the scene (.JSON) we sent you
- Double-click on “Overlay” and select the file path to the unpacked .png file
- Modify text elements in the scene.
- Modify camera – DONE!
