Migrating from another streaming application or operating system? Try out our new Scene Collection Importer - it supports OBS Classic, XSplit, and Streamlabs’ fork of OBS out of the box. It also adds better cross-OS translation for your existing OBS Studio scene collections.
We’ve also added icons in the Sources list, the Add Source menu, and the Advanced Audio Properties dialog, to help tell all your various source types apart at a glance.
We've added other various features to the OBS Studio UI to improve ease of use. A new T-Bar for transitions in studio mode for larger productions, a button to save Replay Buffer clips, Browser Source drag n drop support for URLs and projector toggles
