If you want to improve the production quality of your stream one of the best ways to do it is to add transitions. This adds an effect when switching between scenes instead of just having a hard change.
Let’s take a look at how to add custom transitions to Streamlabs.
How To Add Transitions In Streamlabs
Streamlabs already comes with some pre-made transitions that we can use to get started. We have listed a few places to get completely custom transitions down below if you want to get really creative on your stream.
To add transitions to your stream you go to your scene settings.
Here you can add new transitions and connections between scenes.
Transition – A transition is a specific animation you are adding which can be used in your account.
Connections – A connection is where you decide which two scenes you want to place a transition between.
Adding A New Transition
To add a new transition click on the Add Transition button. Under the type tab you will see all of the default options that Streamlabs provide. Select one and click done. You can also adjust the time the transition takes in this tab.
You are then able to select a certain transition as your default. This means that anytime you switch scene it will use the default transition unless otherwise specified in the connections tab.
As you can see below my scenes now slide instead of just a straight cut.
How To Add Different Transitions To Different Scenes
If you want to have more than just a default transition applied to each scene you can set up specific transitions to switch between certain scenes.
To do this go to your Scene settings –> Connections. In the connections tab click Add Connection.
You will be presented with the screen above. For beginning scene select the scene you are starting on. Then select your Scene transition, this can be one of the transitions we created above. Lastly select the ending scene, the scene which you are transitioning to.
You will be able to create a separate transition for each connection that you have.
