This is a theory not a statement of fact.Hi. I love this plug-in! I’m so addicted to use it for better looks. However, I have a issue with the plug-in...
I’m using it on Mac OBS 25.0.8. When I use move source filter, my Stream Deck software will get almost 100% cpu usage for a little moment, even I didn’t use Stream Deck for that moment. Move transition had no issue as I can see.
Is there anyway to make it not to happen this?
I suspect it's because video compression relies on some things on the screen staying static, the more you have moving the harder it is for the video compression to do it's job. For example I use the scroll function on a long bible passage and although it's only text the CPU utilization jumps up significantly on that part of my show.
Video files and cameras coming into OBS are already compressed but things moving IN obs are like vector graphics being rendered and compressed in real time.
Here is a video where I show Process explorer overlaid on the scenes. Notice the spike when I start recording, then when I transition to the text scrolling scene, I go back then I start streaming and do it again. https://youtu.be/ODp8ySIPTUI Just to be clear I am not using "move transition" to do the text scrolling that is just the simple scroll filter on a text source. This is just a little Latitude e7240 ultrabook that's why OBS is so intense.
