Using OBS Studio to serve yourself coffee

Posted on

Using OBS Studio and a green screen to serve yourself coffee may sound like a strange idea, but with the rise of virtual events and remote work, it can be a fun and creative way to bring a personal touch to your video presentations. Here’s how you can set it up:

  • Set up your green screen: The first step is to set up your green screen behind you. You can either purchase a green screen or use a green sheet or wall if you have one. Make sure the green screen is evenly lit and has no wrinkles or creases.
  • Install OBS Studio: OBS Studio is a free and open-source software for video recording and live streaming. Download and install OBS Studio on your computer.
  • Create a new scene: In OBS Studio, create a new scene and add a source for your webcam. This will be the video feed that shows your face and hands.
  • Take a picture with your webcam without you in it. Add this image to the scene as well behind the webcam source.
  • Add a green screen filter: Next, add a green screen filter to your webcam source. This filter will remove the green background from your video and then you can see your background.
  • Now record a video with you serving yourself a cup of coffee.
  • Add a new scene with the webcam source and the greenscreen filter and add the video as the background. (Video needs to be autoplayed)
  • Now when you switch scenes you can sit in front of the greenscreen and it will seem as if you are serving yourself coffee.
  • For extra effect put the same cup as used in the video on your table already and take a sip after your clone puts it down.

With these simple steps, you can use OBS Studio and a green screen to serve yourself coffee in a virtual setting. This fun and creative approach can add a personal touch to your video presentations and make them more engaging for your audience.
