Ecamm Live is an all-in-one live streaming production platform for Mac, that allows anyone to create professional quality live or pre-recorded video content.

The following article will teach you how to add your Singular overlays into Ecamm Live.

Note that this tutorial only works with the Ecamm Live "Widgets Overlay" feature. This feature is only available to Pro Ecamm Live users and also requires Mac OS 10.13 or newer.

Prepping the Overlays

Before you can output your overlays with Ecamm, 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".

We recommend matching your with and height to the resolution of your video. You'll also need to select 30 FPS for frame rate. Lastly, you can simply choose the "Fill Entire Frame" option and ignore the Width and Height.

5 - Stream to destination

With your overlays successfully on top of your webcam video, you can now stream to your desired destination (bottom right corner menu).
