"Chasing" Live Streaming Countdown Timer for Ecamm, vMix, and OBS
Take your LIVE Streams to the next level with this chasing animated countdown timer created by our in-house designer Paul Dixon!
WHAT YOU'RE GETTING:
- An animated overlay: a looping 1920x1080 video file (.mov format) with a semi-transparent background
- Done For You File: Pre-built countdown timers for vMix (PC) and Ecamm (Mac)
- You CAN EDIT the text "Show Starts Soon" & the LENGTH of the timer itself
- Tutorial Videos: Video tutorials explaining how to set up countdown timers in vMix, Ecamm, and OBS
Here's a video preview of this design. This is the purple version, but you can choose different colors in the drop-down menu above.
The duration of the timer can be adjusted to whatever length you require inside vMix, Ecamm, or OBS and you can change the font of both the timer and the text above. You can also change the wording of the text above the timer.
If you use streaming software other than vMix, Ecamm, or OBS you can still use the animation (providing your software supports .mov), but you will need to create, and add your own timer and text. You can NOT use the animations in StreamYard.
This animation has been designed to be placed on top of your streaming video so that your audience gets a LIVE preview before your actual show starts. For that reason, it includes around 70% black opacity which will darken the video below and allow the animation and clock to shine!
You could also place a static image behind the countdown timer (instead of providing a preview) but we find we get better engagement when our viewers can see something happening in the background.
Important: Make sure to select the color you want using the drop-down menu at the top of this page! You can NOT use these countdowns in StreamYard.
