OBScenery FX

OBS Scene Effects are used to enhance performer video broadcast experiences

About the Product

OBScenery FX was created as a platform to support any number of scene enhancements during video broadcasting and as the name implies, it relies on OBS (Open Broadcaster Software)... you can learn more about it on our Platform Prerequisites page. It is in very early development so there are only a few modules available, but the only limitation is your imagination

Here's a sample of what OBScenery FX can do:

and another:

Components are packaged into themes that have their own unique style. Currently, the prototype theme is the only one available, but more will be coming and even more are already conceptualized. We'd like to hear your ideas!

Here are some of the features of the prototype version. It is fully functional (See the Installation Instructions tab for setup information)


The platform has been designed to work with any video broadcasting platform, but the first implementation has been done for Chaturbate where a small number of performers have already started using custom-made technology for scene enhancement

Because we've designed this system for modular development, we can quickly create new components... so stay tuned for more exciting elements to add to your broadcast!

It comes with a user-definable preferences screen that allows the broadcaster to fine-tine the behavior of each of the elements during a live broadcast
