OBS has a standard plugin installed already called Automatic Scene Switch but it’s surprisingly lacking in features. Upon researching how to make my Zoom Effect I stumbled across a problem where I needed to automatically switch to scenes based on certain types of triggers.
Luckily, open source Devs are awesome and someone figured has created a more powerful tool called the Advanced Scene Switcher which you can download from HERE.
This install process is fairly straight forward but for the sake of rounding everything out, here’s how to install it. This install is going to be for Windows 10 users only.
Step 1 – Unzip
You’ll receive the files in nifty little zip files. Unzip the files into it’s respective folder.
Step 2 – Install
Navigate to the folder that you unzipped the files to and follow the folder path of SceneSwitcher -> SceneSwitcher -> Windows
In this final folder, you’ll find the .exe labeled AdvancedSceneSwitcherSetup.exe
Double Click it.
Step 3 – Warnings
After a UAC prompt from windows, you’ll see the below image.
Click Yes as this warning is just letting you know that you’re putting files in an area that contains files already. Since this is plugin for OBS, this is exactly what we want.
Click NEXT -> INSTALL -> FINISH
You’ve Successfully Install the Plugin
At this point, your install of advanced scene switcher is complete and you can now move forward with life. Yay you.
