The Scene Editor enables more ways to elevate your livestream: It allows you to add useful widgets with various functionalities to your livestream—completely available within your Sound Alerts setup.
Below you will learn everything you need to know to get the most out of the editor:
These are the widgets currently available within the Sound Alerts Scene Editor:
- Goal widgets for followers and subscribers
- Live widgets such as an activity feed or leaderboards for the Twitch Extension or Sound Alerts with Channel Points, a chatbox, the emote wall, and our alert box
- Label widgets to display dynamic showcases of recent subs, raids, cheers, or followers and showcase top viewers in various categories per streaming session (as requested by our community)
- Text widgets to display individual messages in your livestream
Labels work like newsticker displays from classic TV. For example, you place your follower label in the desired position, and the username of the person who last followed you will be seen. The display can be configured in various ways. Color, movement direction, and running speed intensity are just examples.
There are currently eight different labels to choose from. You can see them in the picture below:
