Prepping the Overlays

Before you can output your overlays with Dazzl.tv, you have to prep them in Studio. If you already know how to do this, skip this step.

Preparing Your Singular Overlays in Studio

A - Log into Singular, Download a Theme

Sign up for Singular (if you haven't already), log in to your Dashboard, and download a free theme from the Marketplace. To access the Marketplace, hit the "New" button in the upper left corner and select "Market".
