I cannot get the words from my syphon source to display over my camera source. If camera source is on top, I see the camera. If syphon source is on top, I see the words. I confirmed my syphon source setting is set to allow for transparency. Syphon is coming from Big Sur. OBS version 29.1.3.

It's set to *allow* transparency, but is it *actually* transparent?

Also, the source might actually be transparent, but not all transports support that. Most physical video standards don't. NDI (network) does. There are others that I don't know about. So that's a possibility too.

Likewise, the transport might allow it, but the source isn't.

If you really can't get *actual* transparency, and you don't need all the possible colors, then you might use the Chroma Key filter in OBS to make it into a "green screen" or whatever color you don't need. Change that color *into* transparency, in OBS.

Syphon works internally on Mac without needing to send video signals over a network. Just tested mine (OBS 29.1.3 and ProPresenter 7.14.1) on M1 MBP, works fine.
