OBS Scene Importer

The OBS Scene Importer allows you to import a scene collection from OBS Studio into XSplit Broadcaster for an easy and streamlined way to transition between the two applications.

You will have to export your scene collections on OBS Studio first by going to Scene Collection > Export then saving the JSON file.

Importing OBS Scenes

  1. Go to Extensions > OBS Scene Importer.
    If OBS Scene Importer is not shown in the Extensions menu, you will have to install the extension plugin first through Extensions > Add extensions > Find more extensions.

  2. Click then browse and select your exported OBS Scene Collection JSON file.

  3. Click Import to continue.

  4. Before a new presentation is created from the scene collection you imported, you will be prompted if you want to save your current presentation.

A log file will also be generated in your XSplit logs folder after importing.
