OBS Studio is a fantastic piece of free software, constantly updated and maintained and used by thousands of streamers and creatives worldwide. If you are now considering dipping your toe into the world of streaming or screen-recording for tutorials then this is the course for you.
I start from the very beginning by adding an image to a scene. From there I work into more complex topics slowly and carefully, always in a chatty and relaxed way. No high-power, in your face snappy tutorials here. All is calm and very zen. At the end of the course you will have a great grasp of OBS Studio and be able to concentrate on expressing your creativity rather than worrying about the software.
This course covers:
•A basic overview of OBS Studio
•Adding Image, Video and Camera sources to scenes
•Working with source filters
•Creating a set of multiple scenes
•Scene nesting
•Audio / Video sync
•Streaming and recording settings
•Elgato Stream Deck
The only requirement for this course is either a PC or Mac with access to the internet. A webcam (internal is fine) would be ideal, as well as a Facebook account – used when testing live-streaming (don’t worry, we don’t go ‘live’ on the course).
Come along with me as we work through OBS Studio and demystify this amazing application and release our creativity on the world.
