Stingers are short video clips that can be used to introduce, end or transition between various scenes of your presentation.
Stinger transitions can have alpha transparency which allow content from the scenes to still be visible while the stinger plays. Only a few video formats support alpha transparency such as MOV and WEBM. Since MOV with alpha channels are usually large files, XSplit Broadcaster uses WEBM as the native format for stingers.
MOV videos and sequential PNG images can easily be converted to the native WEBM format and added to the Transitions menu using the Add Stinger wizard. Existing WEBM with alpha can also be used with the Add Stinger wizard to instantly add them to the Transitions menu.
