Motion Effect is now integrated with Streamlabs Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). Now you can easily create custom transitions for your scenes. It is a great way to create a professional-looking stream that captures the attention of new viewers. While it is possible to buy overlay themes with custom transitions, Motion Effect lets you animate scene transitions by yourself.

Today, we’ll show you how to add and customize a Motion Effect scene transition. Let’s get started.

How it Works

The Motion Effect scene transition will animate a source that is present in more than one scene. In the example below, I have my webcam source present in my “Live” scene and my “Just Chatting” scene.

Instead of a traditional cut or fade, it moves from one location to the other. If there are sources that exist in one and not the other, they will zoom in/out instead.

How to add a Scene Transition

  1. Open Streamlabs OBS and click on the cogwheel in your scene selection tab.

4. The duration field determines how long the source will take to get from one spot to another.

5. The acceleration sliders will make your source start fast and slow down, or start slow and speed up, depending on how you set it up.
