    Do Browser captures that are hidden/in unused scenes impact performance?

    Hello, I've got a OBS profile with a large number of browser captures spread across several scenes, however only one is ever being displayed at a time. I'm just wondering if having these captures in the profile impacts performance even if they are currently hidden? Thanks, Levy

    Does streaming and recording at the same time use more CPU when using NVENC?
