So, I have gotten a twitch account at SheerPanic_ (note the underscore at the end). I will be setting up over the next few weeks to do a show in late Feb – I did my first test transmission today, and while there were a few minor warts it went better overall than I had any right to expect. I apparently need to get over yet another type of stage fright.. (it’s so bizarre. I’m over the “stage fright when multitrack deck is running” and I’ve put a pretty good dent in the “stage fright while performing IRL” but apparently video broadcasting is yet another thing.

It’s also never going to be beautiful – I don’t anticipate millions of viewers or anything like that, so I’m not going to build a set or set up special lighting for it. I will arrange to have multiple camera angles, and I will hard-mount them so they don’t get in the way when I’m doing other things in the studio. I’m going to see if I can set up rules in OBS to switch randomly between cameras as well.

    Ah, but *you* are beautiful. I think it went very well for a first time. Hopefully my commentary and advice didn’t give the opposite impression.

    I thought the broadcast, at least the second or third – Went fairly well. No glitches in audio except maybe once. I mean just starting out you really set up OBS well. I like the transitions!! . I think there is some amount of triggering with foot pedals that is done by other twitch steamers. I am sure there is a “StreamDeck” like deal for feet. I am sure you could rig something up. The transitions are random and like state lighting need like “scenes”. Anyway, as an observer that is pretty much all I got. The music choices where great and it sounded high quality.
