When Using Animated Overlay for stream, OBS has very high cpu usage


New Member
So when I have another source open (one without the animated overlay) at idle without doing anything, obs is usually 2%, However when I switch to the source with the animated overlay, it spikes up to 20% on idle only. I tried streaming with both sources, I had no problems nor lag when I wasn't using the animated overlay. Using the animated overlay was bringing CPU to 100% usage and heavy lag. I experimented and hid it as well, my game ran smoother. Anyone know the problem here?

Also note, the overlay is in AVI file format so we could get it transparent. When i used a WEBM version of it (I encoded original through Handbrake) it had a lot less cpu usage. Could it be its due to the AVI File format? Thanks in advance
