Set up and switch between different scenes to create smooth transitions.


Camera Scenes

Camera scenes use your camera input as the primary source of your feed. They're perfect for when the focus needs to be on the people, like stream hosts or guests.

With a camera scene, you get:

  • 6 different layout options under your stream preview,

  • Controls to maximize the participant, mute or adjust volume, and hide the input.



Media Scenes

Media scenes use additional sources and files, like videos and presentations.

With a media scene, you get:

  • 7 different layout options under your stream preview,

  • Additional controls to maximize the source, replace it on the spot, and hide it.

Depending on the media type, you'll also get controls like playback settings for videos and slide switchers for presentations. Media scenes include presentations, videos, screen sharing, and RTMP feeds.



Countdown Scenes

Countdown scenes provide customizable timers for your stream intros or transitions. They're great for building up to key moments while getting ready.

With a countdown scene, you get:

  • 7 different timer options to choose from,

  • 8 different types of royalty-free background music to set the mood,

  • multiple default backgrounds to pick from or upload your own,

  • the option to auto-switch to the next scene when the countdown is over.


Requirements

  • You can have a maximum of 40 scenes in your Studio.

  • Pick the right browser for your operating system:

    • Windows, macOS, and Linux: Chrome (recommended), Firefox, Arc, Edge, Safari (least preferred).

FAQ

Do my media sources have to take up the whole screen?

No, you can choose from multiple layouts and focus on different elements. For example, you can place your camera feed next to a presentation to show both at the same time, or you can full-screen a video without additional distractions around in.

Can I customize my scenes?

Yes, each scene can be customized individually, allowing different designs for different sections of your stream. Scenes auto-save the design you apply in Studio, enabling seamless transitions.

Is the auto-switch option available only for Countdowns?

Currently, yes, but our team is working hard to bring auto-switch to more scenes. Meanwhile, you can manually switch scenes with a single click or use shortcuts.

💡 Scenes come in various formats to fit all your needs.
