Free stream overlays are a great option when you start streaming and don't have the funds to get a full overlay setup. You may also not be entirely sure streaming is something you can see yourself doing long term. However, in order to give your streaming career the best shot, you will want to make it look as professional as possible.
As previously mentioned before you go all-in on live streaming it's a good idea to test the water. Free stream overlays allow you to have a professional-looking stream without paying a dime. Although nothing beats having your own personalised overlays and brandings, experimenting with free overlays is a good idea. Additionally, consider the option to buy a stream overlay package which is much cheaper than fully personalised branding.
With that being said we have compiled a top 5 list of Hexeum's free stream overlays.
How To Set Up A Stream Overlay ?
The live streaming industry has come a long way over the last few years. There are more and more components involved in running a successful stream. When it comes to setting up overlays you will need to choose some streaming software.
There are quite a few different choices available regarding streaming software. The most popular are OBS, Streamlabs and Streamelements. The process of setting up overlays in each one of these solutions will be different. However, sites like YouTube are full of great resources and tutorials on getting everything setup.
In general your stream overlays will be separated into scenes within your streaming software. For example, when you are playing a game you use the live screen scene. If you take some time to talk to chat then you would use an intermission screen.
