What are the different types of Facecam frames?
There are many different types of facecam borders that one can use and that are also used by many major streamers. The different types of webcam borders include Animated Facecam overlays, Non-Animated Webcam Frames, or Cute Webcam Frames. Most of the time, the design of the facecam border matches the rest of the Youtube or Twitch overlay, i.e. the general stream overlay, the start and end settings, the Twitch alerts, the pause screens, the Twitch panels and the sub badges. An animated facecam frame is the best choice in terms of optics. Animated Facecam borders make a very professional impression on potential new viewers and are crucial for a good animated Twitch Overlay Template.

Our conclusion on Facecam frames.
If you often watch the streams of streamers with a very large range, you may notice that they often do not use a webcam frame at all. These streamers already have a huge range. For them, it is no longer as important as their stream overlay and thus also their facecam border looks like. However, in our opinion, a well-structured and well-designed streaming overlay is very important for prospective and future streamers. Many potential viewers feel more comfortable with a professional streamer than with someone without a proper streaming overlay. The facecam border is one of the most important Twitch or Youtube overlays, as it is the part that is visible to your viewers all the time during your stream. He leaves the biggest and most lasting impression on new potential followers. So our advice is: A facecam frame is very important for your stream to leave a good impression on your community as well as potential new viewers. It is not so important whether you have an animated or a non-animated webcam border. The main thing is that your webcam frame harmonizes with a uniform design and attracts new viewers.
