Here is how you set up a Green Screen with Gamecaster:
Launch the program, and if you haven’t already, set up your camera by clicking the camera icon on the lower right hand side of the screen.
Once you have added your camera, you should be able to see your picture on the main screen. To enable chroma key, hover over the scene and click the “Edit Scene” button that appears.
From there, scroll down to your webcam widget, then adjust the settings on the right side of the screen.
Should You Replace Your Green Screen Background in Gamecaster?
Depending on the look you’re going for, you can either remove your background or replace it with something more visually interesting. There are many great webcam background ideas for Twitch. Here are just a few:
When Eljayem_ began streaming with a webcam, he used a backdrop of a milk aisle and made sure that his webcam overlay was large enough you could see the milk from a thumbnail. Many randoms would come into his chat just to ask about it or make a joke. Several would become a part of his community.
Appear to live the life of luxury. You could also either wear a suit to blend into your environment or other apparel (such as scuba gear) that wouldn’t fit into the design.
Driver’s Seat of a Car
Note that a few viewers may potentially think you are actually driving. Make sure your mods know how to handle the situation. This background is another setting that is great for community engagement.
Remind people of childhood adventures in their own treehouses. Or use this backdrop as part of an all-night stream where you tell scary stories to your audience.
Major League Sporting Stadium
Not only should you have backdrops of you on the field, you could have other with you in the stands or on the stadium screen. Use each in a different part of your stream. Perfect for those who play sporting games.
International Space Station
Because, why not? Be the envy of Twitch by streaming from outer space! Or at least make it appear that way.
Like several others on this list, the fighter jet background is perfect for generating engagement.
Give your audience updates about your community or upcoming events behind the desk of a newscaster. Add newsy sound clips to bring the illusion home.
Film something ahead of time or use stock footage to create a very fun look. T10Nat filmed herself walking around her room and plays the footage in her background. It makes for very interesting visuals and her viewers love it.
