Here’s a brief article on how to change the color of your twitch overlay in Streamlabs OBS (and any version of OBS, really) – brief because it’s, really, incredibly simple.
The video above, using the very popular VX Pro Red as an example, is a pretty succinct look at just how few steps are involved. This is applicable to ANY of the designs on this site, not just VX Pro, so feel free try this with whatever stream overlay you’re using.
Here are those steps for you, blow by blow…
This is near enough the same process, only things are in slightly different places.
The steps above actually apply to almost any Source in the Sources panel, not just image/video based Sources. You should even be able to change the color of your twitch alerts, by right-clicking the Source that displays your stream alerts and selecting Filters – all the same Effect Filters should be usable as described above.
As you can see, it’s incredibly easy to change the color of your stream overlay or twitch alerts. As mentioned before, it works on pretty much any stream overlay on the site, even video-based files like streaming soon and brb screens.
With over 150 stream graphics available, this can all get a little overwhelming. Perhaps you don't know your Twitch overlays from your stream alerts, or what exactly Professional Customisation means on our stream design pages. Well, take a look at our guides section.
My name's Lou and since 2014 I've designed & maintained everything you see, from website to stream overlays. Twitch Overlay isn't impossibly large teams with zero accountability - any order or contact you make, you're talking to me and me alone so feel free to get in touch.
Our newsletter is quite literally just an excuse for us to give away paid content. Over the past year we've given away VX Pro Chroma, Razor Purple, and Carbon stream overlays (each worth between $10-12) simply as a thanks for being subscribed. And when we're not doing that we're putting exclusive discounts in there, so generally it's a win-win.
If your stream is picking up a little momentum and you're looking into ways to monetize, consider giving our affiliate program a try. The minimum requirements to join are very fair, and as you grow and refer more people our way, we'll bump up your cut! Plus once you become a preferred affiliate you can request any overlay at no cost.
