Hey what’s up everyone, it’s Derek withNerdOrDie? In this video I’m going to show you howto make customized scenes for your stream with our new free resource. Let’s get right into it. It’s been awhile since we’ve releaseda free resource, but I hope this video makes it worth the wait. With our scene maker, you can create and customizeyour own intro, be right back or AFK, and outro scenes quickly, easily, and of coursefor free. You can even make scenes that feature yourgameplay in the background while you wait for in-game queues. There’s tons of options on how this canbe used, so let’s take a quick look at what I’m talking about. This is the default scene design that you’llbe able to use. You’ll be able to change out the backgroundvideo or use an image, update what all the text says, change the fonts, change the colors,and much more. All of this can be done with a couple of easysteps that I’ll explain in this video. In the top left we have social media popupsthat will animate and show off your social networks. In the bottom left, you’ll see labels thatwill display your recent follower, biggest tipper, latest sub and more. The bottom right has a countdown that canbe customized to last longer, and display different messages. There’s also a message that displays whenthe countdown ends! In the middle we have a heading and sub headingthat you can change out, and even a logo or brand image which you can add in as well. We’ll use the settings generator to customizeall your settings – so it will be quick, easy, and you’ll even be able to make multiplescenes if you’d like! If you guys and gals like free resources likethis… please let me know! These take quite a bit of work, but I’dlove to release bigger and better ones in the near future. Make sure to like and share this video ifyou want to see more designs like this. To start, head over to NerdOrDie.com and clickon “Free Resources” at the top. Here, you’ll find all items in our shopthat you can use free of charge, such as our panel and overlay makers. Let’s go ahead and click on the scene maker- the direct link will be in the description below as well. Add the item to your cart and go through thecheckout process. After you have the files downloaded to yourcomputer, let’s go ahead and unzip them. As you will see, there is a main folder called“Stream Resources” with two other folders inside of it. Anyways, once you extracted the files, you’llhave two folders. First, let’s start with the settings generator. This is where the real magic happens. In the “SceneMaker” folder that we justextracted there’s a link to open up the Settings Generator, go ahead and click that. At the top, you’ll see all the categoriesof options that you’ll be able to change – you can click these to jump around to differentoptions sets. You’ll also see two buttons on the right. The first will allow you to toggle the sizeof the preview window to make it larger. You can also click directly on the previewarea to toggle its size as well. The second button is to download your settingsfile, which we will later place in the “Settings” folder. More on that later. You’ll also see a live preview towards thetop right. This will give you an idea of what your scenewill look like.
This will give you an idea of what your scenewill look like. Please note that it will contain the defaultbackground videos and images – as well as default user names pulled into the labels. We will go over switching these out afterwe go through the settings that we can change here. Also, the live preview will cycle throughonly 1 social network and then the schedule, this is so you can get an idea of what everythingwill look like quicker. Let’s move on to the actual options. First is the Background Type. Do you want to use an image or video for youbackground? Next is Background Overlay Opacity. This will allow you to decide how much ofthe background color is shown. Slide this up to have a more solid color ordown for a more see-through. Background Blur will allow you to add blurto your image or video, if you’d like. Background Scale lets you scale up the sizeof your background image or video. I recommend scaling up a bit if you add blurto the background. Display Branding will let you decide if youwant to show a logo in the middle or not. Logo Opacity allows you to change how solidor see-through the branding image is. Logo scale will change the size of your logo. Frame width lets you change how thick theframe around the scene is. Scene Title is the main title of the scene. Scene Tagline is the smaller text underneaththe title. So basically, what you need to do is typein new text, and it will be done. The next section is colors. Here, you can use color pickers to decideon what color you’d like to use. Click “Change Color” to open these pickers. The box on the right will display the currentcolor chosen. We’ll see that we can drag around to getwhat we want, and even adjust the opacity of each item. Background Color will be what is used on topof the background image. If you’d like a solid background color,you can move this opacity slider all the way up to 100%. Alternatively you can move it down to 0% tohave no color on top at all. ccent Color is used throughout the design. You can see here it’s used for the yellowborders on the labels, for the social media icons and borders, and schedule border aswell. Frame Color is simply the color of the frame. Primary and Sub Text color will change thevarious text colors. Content Backgrounds is the color behind ourlabel, social media, and schedule areas. Again, you can adjust the level of opacityif you’d like. The next section we have is for the Labels. Display Labels let’s you choose if you wantthis section shown or not. There are a maximum of four labels that youcan show at a time. Each one will allow you to change the headingmessage. For example, you can change “New Follower”to “Latest Follower” or whatever message you’d like it to say. Additionally, if you’d like any label removedcompletely, you can simply leave the header area for each one blank. Labels also have a “Path” setting. So, for the first one, in the heading I’llhave “New Follower”, then in “Label One Path” I’ll put the name of the fileI want to be displayed here in this case, it’lls be “most_recent_follower”. If this doesn’t make sense now, don’tworry – I’ll explain this a bit more once we get into the text file placement.
we get into the text file placement. You’ll be able to do this for all the otherlabel sections. I highly recommend only using the text filesthat provide a single user name, the ones that you would normally have scroll will notwork well here. If you’re familiar with StreamLab’s StreamLabels or the Muxy Ticker, you should have an idea of what’s going on here. Anyways, for now, let’s move on to Schedulesettings. If you don’t have a set schedule, you canuse Display Schedule to hide this area completely. Here, you’ll be able to set your times foreach day of the week. Let’s say you don’t stream on Sundaysand Wednesdays, just change the text to say “Off” or something like that. Once you’re done with your schedule youcan now move onto the scaling area. This will let you increase or decrease thesizes of each section. Simply move the slider for each respectivesection you want to change. You may need to wait for the schedule or socialmedia areas to show, to see the changes you’re making. Once you’re satisfied with the scaling ofeach section, you can move onto font adjustments. The first two options allow you to selectthe fonts to use for the primary and sub fonts. Click “Search” and you’ll be presentedwith all the fonts that Google fonts offers – which you can scroll through. To narrow things down you can use the categoriesbuttons to select types of fonts you’d like to use. If you’re a bit overwhelmed, you can checkout https://fonts.google.com/ to see their directory, it contains featured and the mostpopular fonts – making it a bit easier to navigate and make a selection. Then just come back to the settings generatorand search for the name of the font you’d like to use. I’ll go ahead and search for Oswald, whichis a font I’ve used before, select it, and then click close. Furthermore, certain text areas can be adjustedin their size. You can also use the vertical offset slidersto adjust the placement of the text. Let’s say you want to swap the positionof the text for the labels, you can use their vertical offsets to move their positions. The next section is for the Countdown. Again, you can enable or disable this sectionif you’d like. Countdown Time will let you set how long inminutes the countdown will last for. This will not update on the live preview. The next two text boxes let you adjust whatis shown while the countdown is active, then what message is shown when the countdown ends. Finally, we have the social media section. Here you can change the headers for each network,as well as change the name display for each network. I’ll go ahead and update these to show myTwitter and Facebook info. Let’s say you don’t want certain networksto show, all you have to do is make the text boxes blank for any social media popups youdon’t want to show. Now, let’s just click the download buttonto save our settings. If you’d like to make additional settingsfiles for future scenes, you can do so by editing again, and clicking download whenfinished. Let’s finish up with this scene first. Now that your settings file is downloaded. You’ll need to place it within the settingsfolder. This file should be the only file locatedhere. It’s full file name is settings.js – makesure the file is called this when places in here.

here. Sometimes, if you download multiple files,your computer will add a number at the end of the file name, such as settings (1). To use the settings file in our scenes, we’dneed to remove the (1), and ensure the file is just called settings. With that, we’re all ready to go, the nextstep is to add your scene into OBS, or whatever streaming program you use, so that we cansee everything is working so far. For OBS, let’s add in a Browser Source. We’ll want to add a Local File, then hitbrowse to select the scene.html file that we’ll find in the “SceneMaker” folder. Set the Width to 1920 and Height to 1080. “Shutdown source when not visible” canbe checked if you’d like. Make sure that “Refresh browser when scenebecomes active” is checked. Once you hit okay, you should see your designso far. Now, we can link our text files and changeout our background and logo images. To properly link our StreamLabs Stream Label,Muxy Ticker text files, or any other program you may use to generate text files on yourcomputer, we need to link things up properly. The “Text Files” folder needs to be storedin your main folder, and will be used to pull your latest followers, tippers, and subs directlyinto the scene. So to be clear, my “Stream Resources”folder has the “TextFiles” and “SceneMaker” folder in it currently. This will allow us to use the text files folderfor multiple scenes that we may create later. The following step is optional, and only neededif you want your scene to display your stream supporters automatically – so if you don’tplan on having your latest followers or top tipper shown in your scene, or perhaps youdon’t want to move your text files from where they are currently saved at, then youcan skip ahead. All that we need to do is set Stream Lab’sStream Labels or Muxy’s ticker to save the files in the “Text Files” folder. Let’s quickly go over the steps for eachprogram. Remember, if you use these programs already,you’ll have to go into your streaming program and update the file paths to your proper textfiles, or they will not be displayed – as they will be moved and no longer updated. For Stream Labels, you will open the program,login and click “change output directory”. Then, simply select the “TextFiles” folder. All your files will now be moved to this folder. You can go back into the settings generatorand update the file path names if needed. With the Muxy Ticker, simply log in, clickthe settings tab, and then click the file directory. Navigate to where your TextFiles folder issaved and select that folder and hit “select folder”. If you decide to add any cheer files fromthe Muxy ticker. You will need to add /cheer/TheNameOfTheFile. So, the most recent cheer, if using Muxy Ticker, will look like /cheer/most_recent_cheererin the settings generator path. Once you’re done linking this all up, you’regoing to need to redownload a new settings file from the Scene Maker, and then replaceany settings file within the “settings” folder. Basically you just need to remember that ifyou make any changes in the settings generator that you’d like to use, you will need tooverwrite or replace the settings file. If you just changed your text files locationon your computer, you will need to update these changes in OBS as well – anywhere theymay have been used. This might be a bit confusing, so let me knowin the comments if you’re having issues here. Once you have the text files saved in, wecan move on to how to change out the backgrounds and branding image.
and branding image. Let’s start with the background. We’re going to go into the “SceneMaker”folder and now into the backgrounds folder. Here, you’ll need to put the image OR videothat you want to use. You could also use a solid background colorif you’d like – which was shown in the changing colors portion of this video. In this folder I have included a default imagecalled bg.jpg and video called bg.mp4. If you do not want to use this image or video,simply delete them. Now, you need to place in your own backgroundimage or video. I highly recommend using one that is sizedat 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels tall, otherwise you might see some distortion orskewing of the image/video. All that you need to do is make sure yourimage or video has the name of “bg”, like the default image, and it will work. Images will accept .pngs and .jpgs, videoswill work with .mp4s and .oggs. So, let’s say you want to use a jpg, makesure it’s called bg.jpg and it’s the only file in this folder. For a video that’s a .mp4 it would be namedbg.mp4 and put in this folder. Alternatively, you could delete all imagesand videos in the background folder, and then simply add your background image or videoplaylist into OBS directly. However, you wouldn’t get the backgroundblur effect without adding a filter to it in OBS Studio. For example, if you delete the backgroundimages completely, you could put your gameplay capture behind this scene in OBS, and createa cool overlay while you wait for a queue to pop. For the logo or branding image, the same typeof thought process applied. Again, if you don’t want to add an imagehere, you don’t have to. Let’s go to the “Logo” folder, and dropin the logo you’d like to use – this one will need to be a .png file. There’s plenty of online image converters,such as TinyPng, and I do recommend higher res images here. Somewhere around the 1000 pixel by 1000 pixelmark. Anyways, once your image is in here, makesure it’s named logo, and it should be good to go. With that, you can refresh one final timeand see your scene in all its glory! Take a quick moment to double check that everythinglooks great. Let’s talk about how easy it will be tomake multiple scenes now. To do so, all that you’d need to do is gointo the main folder, copy and paste the SceneMaker folder. You can rename this folder anything you’dlike. For example, I’ll just call this one “BRB”. Now, we will want a new settings file forour new scene – perhaps you’d like the title and subtitle to say a different message. Maybe you don’t want the countdown shownhere – since you won’t be sure how long you’re gone for. Hit download, and then take the new settingsfile and place it in your new scene’s settings folder. Just make sure you override the old file ifit’s in there. Also make sure the file is named settingsand not something like settings (1) or (2). I know this is quite a long video, but again,this is something we put a lot of work into. I wanted you to have as many options as possibleso that you could customize this to your needs. I really hope you all like it, and like Isaid, if you do, please let me know by liking and sharing.
