Scenes are part of an exciting makeover of our Studio that empowers you to build out your stream in advance and ensures a smooth viewer experience.


How to add a scene

  1. Go to Restream Studio and click Add Scene in the top left corner.

  2. Choose between Camera, Media or Countdown.

    1. Camera scenes use your camera input as the primary source of your feed.

    2. Media scenes use media sources, like videos and presentations.

    3. Countdown scenes provide customizable timers for your intro and transitions.

  3. Each scene that you add will appear on the left side of your screen.

  4. Repeat the process to create as many scenes as you'll need for your stream.


How you can customize a Scene

  1. Click the three dots next to each scene to rename, duplicate, or delete it.

  2. Drag and drop your scenes in your preferred order.

  3. Select a layout under your preview window to adjust your scene's look.

  4. Add graphic designs, captions, or QR codes from the menu on your right.

  5. Hover over your preview window to reveal additional controls:

    1. Maximize any video box with the double-pointing arrow.

    2. Click the three dots to adjust volume, hide, or replace an element.

  6. You can customize each scene individually in advance or while the stream is live.

FAQ

How are scenes different from the classic Studio?

With this enhanced version, your scenes can be built out in advance. You no longer need to change layouts and graphics on the go, making your transitions smoother, like switching through slides in a presentation.

Can I automatically switch between scenes?

Switching from scenes containing cameras or media is done manually. When using a Countdown, you can auto-switch to the next scene.


The auto-switch for all scenes is coming soon.

Can I have multiple media sources for a single scene?

Media scenes can be used with one active source at a time. You'll have to choose between a shared screen, a presentation, a video, or an RTMP source.

Can I swap the positions of different elements in layouts?

Yes, all you need to do is drag and drop each feed in your preferred spot.

Will my scenes disappear if I leave the Studio?

Not at all. Scenes are a way to organize your stream in advance and are auto-saved under your Studio. They will be right there when you're ready to go live.

💡 Creating scenes in Studio saves you hundreds of clicks per stream.
