How To Set Up Hot Keys In OBS | Easily Show/Hide Lower 3rds Live

Need a faster way to show/ hide video or camera sources while you're streaming? Want to change scenes by tapping a key on your keyboard? Want to trigger sound effects or music on the fly? You're going to want to watch this!

In this tutorial I show you How To Configure Hotkeys in OBS. You'll learn what they are, how to use them, and a few tips on how NOT to configure them if you still need to type!


Using these techniques you'll be able to show and hide your lower 3rds, switch scenes and trigger transitions, play music or activate sound effects, or even play video clips. This can be used to improve interactivity with your audience, play video clips you're reacting to, pop up still images or gifs, and improve the flow of your show.

These techniques work with any source, but if you want the graphics used in this video, or other drag&drop, BPM-synched, genre specific, motion loops for DJs, Producers, VJs and Content Creators, head over to www.overcast.tv and check out all our Stream Packs & Stinger Transitions!

Think of them like sample packs and presets for your livestream. Arrange, combine, crop, and remix the components to compose your own unique DJ live streaming experience, create original VJ compositions, or use in music video content.
