Can I use these layouts with multiple participants?

Totally! These examples are indicative of just a few of the views you can achieve with Studio layouts. You can mix and match them as you prefer with all of your guests and active sources.

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.

Can I freely resize the feeds within these layouts?

Our layouts currently have fixed sizes and proportions. Don't hesitate to share any feedback on how we can improve them with our team!

What about layouts in landscape mode?

Streaming vertically is just as easy. If you turn your stream into landscape mode, you'll see an adapted version of all of our layouts. Whether you stream horizontally or vertically, we've got you covered.

💡 Studio shortcuts can help you switch between layouts with just your keyboard
