How to Create a Scene On OBS
Setting up a scene allows you to customize what you want your viewers to see. If you play a number of different games, you create a custom scene for each, tailoring to each experience.
Select a scene
To put together a “scene,” such as the game you’re playing, your webcam’s feed, or custom overlays, right-click the Scenes box and click Add from the dropdown. Name the scene and then click OK. You can build multiple scenes and switch between them freely, allowing you to change it up as you change what you’re playing.
Add a gaming source
There are three different sources you can use to add your game to the scene: Game Capture, Window Capture, and Display Capture.
To add a source to your scene, select the scene and right-click inside the Sources box. Click Add and then choose the source you want to add.
Find the right source for you
Game Capture captures the feed from a single game and will capture games that run in full screen. To add Game Capture as a source, name it and choose the game you want to capture. The game must be open for OBS to see it; if you don’t see your game, make sure it’s open and click the Refresh button. Note that Game Capture currently only supports DirectX 8, 9, 10, 10.1, 11 and OpenGL games.
Window Capture captures the feed from a single window, which could be a game running in windowed mode, a web browser or another app. Window Capture will not capture a game running in full-screen mode.
Display Capture captures your entire monitor. Ideally, you’re running Windows 8 or new, and keep in mind it doesn’t capture games in full-screen mode. Add *Monitor Capture* as a source and name it. Choose the monitor you want to capture (listed by number) and choose whether you want mouse movement to be captured.
Now to add your webcam. Right-click inside the Sources box and click Add > Video Capture Device and type in a name for your source.
In the Device Selection window, choose your Device and modify how you want your video to look. You can open up your webcam’s settings by clicking the Configure button. For webcams that have built-in microphones, make sure the right Audio Input Device is selected in the Audio section.
Now that you have two sources in your scene: a game source and a webcam source, you are almost ready to go! You won’t see anything in OBS until you start streaming or previewing your stream. To see how it will look to your audience, click Preview Stream.
