Using Paint to annotate OBS

Thanks to cknoor for pointing me towards a tutorial, will link it later!

This is what I ended up doing, for OBS 64bit 0.16.2

  • Open a Paint Window
  • Add a Window Capture and choose the Paint window.  Make sure this is the top layer on OBS
  • Click on Filters, and set the Color Key to those items shown
  • Also in Filters, set Reduce until you can’t see the top window and the scroll bars – this will depend on your monitor (I think, I’m no expert!)
  • Choose the size of the Paint window to match the OBS setup – this is just trial and error.
