What is a webcam overlay?
A webcam overlay or facecam overlay, is a design to decorate the edge of your webcam. They fit your facecam optically into your stream and can direct the eyes of your viewers skillfully to your face or to the game action. No matter if Twitch, YouTube or Facebook, our Facecam Overlays are compatible with every online platform for streamers and can be easily integrated into your stream with OBS from Streamlabs or Xsplit. Cam overlays look best when they complement your alerts, stream overlay, twitch panels and banners or when they visually follow a similar theme. Our animated twitch webcam overlays are often available in Stream Packs or Stream Bundles that allows you to exchange every single stream element, top designed with a matching theme or logo. Streaming has never been so easy and beautiful.
Our cam overlays are animated in loving detail. We attach great importance to good looking animations for our fancy webcam frames.
How do I add my webcam overlay on OBS and Streamlabs?
The integration of cam overlays in OBS, StreamlabsOBS or Xsplit is very easy. Once you have purchased or completed an overlay, you can import it into all major streaming tools. It is recommended to save the overlay as WebM with alpha channel or if it is not animated, as PNG to have a transparent background. In OBS you can now insert the finished overlay as media source under “Sources”.
With our stream packages there is always an. overlay file included. This file can be easily imported into StreamlabsOBS and automatically places all scenes and overlays for you, you do not have to make any settings yourself.
Can I make my own webcam overlay?
The question of how to make your own Twitch facecam overlay is probably asked by many readers. At Twitch-Overlay we design our webcam overlays with four programs:
- Photoshop: Photoshop is from Adobe and is very suitable for image editing. Shadows and special graphic effects can be realized particularly well in Photoshop.
- Illustrator: Illustrator is from Adobe and is best suited for working with shapes and vectors. Here, the focus is less on effects and more on scalability. This is very suitable for e.g. Stream Emote or Twitch Sub Badges.
- After effects: The Non Plus Ultra when it comes to post processing. Here we animate our overlays and give them the final touch before we release them as a product.
- Blender: A free alternative to the 3D industry standard Cinema 4D, 3ds Max and Maya. The best example for the use of Blender is our Neon Lights Facecam.
Since all these programs are industry standard in design, there are fortunately lots of tutorials and DIY instructions and videos available on YouTube or e-learning platforms like Udemy. If the programs from Adobe are not affordable for you, there are many free alternatives like Gimp or Inkscape. All you need is a little bit of creativity, a pinch of energy and you should be able to create a beautiful cam overlay yourself. Of course, this all sounds easier than it actually is. That is why we offer you to buy one of our many animated twitch webcam overlays in our store, then you can start right away.
Can I also order a custom animated facecam overlay from you?
If you want to have smaller personalizations you can of course order a custom animated webcam overlay, e.g. add or exchange a social icon, if it’s not too much work we can also add your stream name to an existing stream bundle, add your logo or even the logo esports to an animated webcam overlay or stream alert. Larger custom designs or custom stream bundles are part of our product range but have to be discussed with us first by email or in the discord. However, custom designs for animated Cam Overlays are not for the small purse. Here we calculate our actual working time because we do not sell the overlays later on.
If you are planning to order custom facecam overlays, you should gather a few examples and inspirations so that you can explain/show us exactly what you want.
Are there also overlays or stream overlay twitch panels for Free?
Of course, not everyone can afford to invest money directly into their stream, that is why we have included an area in our store for you where overlay templates are free. If you need a free cam overlay, some of our webcam overlays, panels and other top overlays are available for free download in the Free area. So, everyone has the chance to get a professionally designed streaming head start, no matter if on YouTube, Facebook or Twitch stream.
