I believe that your system is well set up. I always test too much at once, not only audio...

Transparency on Main Output / Program OutputInteresting observation...
I am using OBS-NDI and I would like the "Main Output" to display transparency (alpha channel?) when the selected scene does not fill the screen.
Currently, when I view the "Main Output," the background appears black. However, I have noticed that when I switch to the "Preview Output," I'm extremely pleased to see that it displays a transparent background instead of black.
To test this, I use NDI Studio (from NDI tools) and enable "Settings | Video | Show Checkerboard." The appearance of checkerboards indicates that transparency is being shown.
Does anyone have any insights to share regarding why it functions this way?

That is helpful and appreciated.By default, OBS Studio's color format is set to "NV12". In order to send an alpha channel-bearing stream out the back of OBS Studio, I set up the color format to be "BGRA" instead so then alpha is actually part of the signal that gets processed, then sent out the back of OBS Studio via the NDI Main Output. None of the other color formats support alpha channels.
To do this, go to Settings, then select "Advanced" in the left-hand pane. In the right pane, in the "VIdeo" sub-pane, there's a dropdown labeled "Color Format". Select "BGRA" as the format and you will have an alpha-ready stream out the back of that instance of OBS Studio.
NB: Do pay attention to the warning in red at the bottom of the dialog box. Processing in this domain can take a bit of resources, depending on the material you're using. Since this computer does not actually stream to the Internet, there is no issue here. However, it all comes down to what kind of system you have and what kind of hardware you have.
I hope this helps.

I did read up on BGRA and have successfully gotten it to work. The only drawback (as you have alluded to) is that it uses a significant amount of resources. I did just purchase a gaming laptop with an AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and a 3060 GPU, so that should help a bit.
But my question now is... what would be the downside of simply using the OBS-NDI "Preview Output" which supports Alpha Channel (and seems to use significantly less resources) vs using BGRA Color format? Note that I rarely ever use "Studio Mode" in OBS.
Works perfectly fine for me, I use the official link which is 5.5.4:Quick Question: Some people are saying OBS 2.9.X doesn't work with the current NDI, is this true or is it for a specific setup (like the M Camera)?
Strange... I have the same configuration but not working. OBS opens but stays in the background. It might be conflicting with another plugin (maybe vertical plugin, Idk). Would you mind taking a screenshot of your plugins? That'd help!
