Advanced Scene Switcher 1.17.5

In my previous review I had some feedback to be improved. Still gave it 5 stars.

All of those improvements has happened. I would rate this 10/5.

This plugin shouldn't be 'advanced scene switcher', it does SO much more. Almost anything you'd want to automate, this can do it.

This plugin is currently my #1 plugin for OBS, and provides features that in the future hopefully will be default to OBS.

Can only recommend.
Fixed a major issue I had with a program that would always white screen when launchingit to capture (no more flashbangs for the viewers) and can do the job of two other scripts I needed for specific functions. A must have for me now.
I was looking for a way to trigger a scene switch according to the time. I have a 15-minute countdown that plays over a wide shot before the church service begins. With Advanced Scene Switcher, I was able to do it exactly as I wanted.
This isn't just a Scene Switcher, it does SO much more than that.
I don't even use it for switching scenes to be honest..

Its one of the most useful plugins for OBS Studio.
I love it! I entirely use the macro section and I love it. It makes streaming, only while streaming, almost effortless. Although, it's the preparation that can be time consuming but I already had previous experience with macros. I used an Android macro app (unfortunately it doesn't work with my current phone - that does make me angry because I can still download it) as an impression of what coding is like and I even loved it then. I'm still going to school but I haven't gone back since the pandemic and my experience with my first professor's own book. He used his own typo-filled education book. Anyways, I intend on going back to school after the pandemic ends.
This is a really well done plugin, and I am now reliant on this plugin for switching my scenes upon media states (it even allows switching depending on remaining time, which is great for media sources as you won't have to see the video go black). The macros are also really powerful, allowing you to execute a sequence of actions.
Im not pro in OBS, but this plugin really brings up my beginner levels to a notch higher than I could if i spend someone to coach me and improve my OBS scene management skills.
This plugin has come a long way. It's now fancy as all hell!
Absolutely love the ideas and the dedication the developers have put into it. With the Macros Scripting it makes my insanely intricate setups a breeze. ❤
Can't stop shooting what a wonderful plugin for OBS and churches!!!
Made 10 macros and relative some hotkeys and removed about 10 scenes and PPT files instead.
Became so easy to operate.
Hope it will make us not make a mistake from now on.
Really appreciate you guys for your brilliant efforts.
I've been using this for years to control my scene changes by custom scripts.
Amazing plugin, really recommend it!
Amazing piece of software, this is just incredible. Thanks for creating this great tool!
It was good even before the last update. But the added macros are amazing. I no longer have to think about ending the stream when the ending song finishes. I no longer have to think about launching any program when I start the stream.
Imho this plugin should be more popular.
Hello! It's a very good plugin, I use it a lot, although may I ask something? Is there something like this, for streamlabs? I want to switch to it, but this holds me back a little bit

I don't know if something like this exist for streamlabs.
Lastest version doesn't seem to work on Windows 10 with latest version of OBS for switching audio. I had to uninstall and use a previous version.

I cannot reproduce any issues with the audio tab on my end using version 1.10.
You are referring to version 1.10 and 1.9, are you not?
Can you share more details what is causing issues exactly?

I would appreciate a log file (with verbose logging enabled) and if possible your exported plugin settings.
On macOS OSX is not working on OBS 26.0.2, however it works in 26.1.2.

OBS is shipped with certain versions of libraries the plugin depends on.
The version of these libraries was changed from OBS 26.0 to OBS 26.1 and I chose to support the newer versions of OBS.

I could of course always build two version of the plugin but this would probably cause too much confusion.

In general I hope that the problem resolves itself over time as people slowly migrate to more recent versions of OBS on macOS.
But if you have suggestions on how to handle this situation better I am all ears :)

Unfortunately the plugin overview page also does not let me select OBS 26.1 as the minimum supported version, as only changes in major version seem to be supported. (So OBS 25, OBS 26, ...)
i dont like the week day are removed from time tab
W
Warmuptill
This was not intentional and should be fixed already - please download the plug-in again (same version) and the time tab will once again show the weekday options.
But thanks for also reporting the issue! :)
I can not even install it. Absolutely buggy. Big Sur 11.1
W
Warmuptill
I finally managed to set up a VM running Big Sur 11.1, but cannot replicate any issues installing the plug-in.

Can you describe in a bit more detail what exactly is causing issues?
Do you have trouble running the installer itself or is the plug-in not showing up in OBS after running the installer?

In case of the former please remember that you have to right-click / control-click the SceneSwitcher.pkg file and select "open".
Simply double clicking might result in macOS blocking it as it is an unknown third party installer.

In case of the latter can you please share a log file of OBS?
Please also make sure you are using the latest version of OBS as the plug-in is only compatible with OBS 26.1 or newer, due to changes in the QT version.

Anyways feel free to contact me if you need further assistance and I hope you will get it to work soon! :)
Amazing plug-in!

thank you for making this

The way I use OBS, I program in several scene customizations using scene/source filters activated by function keys (F13, F14, etc) when I switch scenes via Touch Portal.

Would it be possible to also program into this plug-in, customizable virtual function key presses with specific scene switches?

thank you very much

I will add it to the to-do list, but I am not sure when I will get around to looking into it.
Thank you for the suggestion!
Hi, the plugin was working well but now Windows Defender is quarantining the plugin as it is being detected as a trojan? Any insight on this?
W
Warmuptill
Hi, I have no clue why that would be the case :(
If you have any doubts the source code is available.
Where did you download the plugin? Which version? Was this already the case for previous versions?

EDIT: I have disabled the download for now, while I investigate this further.
EDIT2: Apparently the 32-bit Windows version of the plugin was somehow triggering windows defender.
Rebuilding the plugin once again with a different version number seems to have resolved the issue for now.
Release was updated and download is enabled again.
