In this video, we walk you through how to use Open Broadcaster Software to record videos. One thing that a lot people don’t realize about live video production is it’s great ability to capture produced content. Depending on your level of skill many people can create live video content with a produced feel that is very similar to post-production video. Using live production software like OBS with multiple scenes and layouts, you will learn how to create dynamic video presentations. When done correctly you include intro videos, lower thirds, picture in picture layouts and more that will reduce your need for post-production.
