Are you ready to learn how to create Facebook Live overlays? Before we get started we wanted to give you an opportunity to check out our extremely popular Secrets to Zoom Success ebook – get yours below!
Now’s let’s get to it! If you’ve watched our Facebook Live videos, you’ve probably noticed that before we start, we have an image teasing our live video.
Throughout the video, we have an overlay underneath.
Then at the end, we have another image thanking our viewers for watching.
Overlays are a great way to make your videos look more professional and sleek. But the good news is they’re really easy to do. Which I’m about to show you.
1. Create The Overlay
To create our overlays, we use Canva. But you could use any image editing software. The main thing is, the image software has to let you do transparent backgrounds.
First, create an image which is 1280 x 720 in size. This is the standard size for a Facebook Live video. The image needs to be the same size, so it fits over the video perfectly.
From there, it’s a simple case of designing the image for how you want it to look in your video.
Here, I’ve decided I want a bar at the bottom of the screen saying “The Go! Agency Rocks!” (Tip: If you make your bar a little transparent, you’ll be able to see a little of the video through it which makes it look nicer.)
Now you’ll notice the rest of the image is blank. That’s a good thing. As mentioned, I want my background to be transparent for later, so I’ll be able to see the video.
When I now save the image in Canva, I have to tick an option for a transparent background.
Whatever imaging software you use, make sure the image is saved with a transparent background and in a file that supports transparency (like a PNG). (Have I mentioned transparency enough yet?)
Ok. Step 1 was easy. Your image is done. Now how do you get it onto your video?
2. Using Open Broadcaster Software
Open Broadcast Software (OBS), is free software used by streamers in order to direct their videos and to add overlays.Instead of running our Facebook Lives through Facebook, we run them through OBS, which sends the information on to Facebook. That allows us to edit the video we send in real time.
Once you’ve got the software installed. Open it up. It will look something like this:
At the moment, we haven’t told the software what we want it to show, so it’s blank. So let’s first add our webcam.
Click on the scene on the left-hand side. Then click the ‘+’ under Sources. This will allow you to add a source (choose what you’d like to show).
In this case, we want to choose our webcam so we’ll choose “Video Capture Device”.
We can then name the device (default is fine) and click OK.
Then it’s just a simple matter of choosing the webcam we want to use. Choosing a preset (the larger the better) and clicking OK. Your webcam video should now show on the main screen of OBS.
Here’s our Marketing Assistant, Dan to demonstrate how it should look.
Now you need to follow the same step again to add your overlay. Click the ‘+’ under sources. This time choose “Image” and then choose the overlay you created. It should look more or less like this:
Once you click OK, it should automatically show above your video as an overlay. Our wonderful model, Dan, again demonstrates:
As I mentioned (multiple times) earlier, the top of my image is transparent. If it wasn’t, you’d be unable to see the video because it would be hidden beneath the image.
If you look at your list of sources, it should now look like this:
Your Image is on top and your Video underneath it. However, if you pulled the image down below the video, like so:
You’ll notice your overlay has disappeared in the preview above. Why?
Because your video is now on top of it!
Your video isn’t transparent, so you can’t see anything behind it.
Think of the top source as a piece of paper, the source beneath it as another piece of paper. If the top piece of paper is transparent, you’ll be able to see the next piece of paper. If the top piece of paper isn’t transparent at all, everything beneath it will be hidden.
So always make sure your overlays are transparent and above your video in your OBS Sources. Otherwise, you may not see them!
Now you’ve figured out how to add overlays to your video. See, nice and simple. But how do you start up your Facebook Live?
Well, I’m going to leave you on a cliffhanger I’m afraid.
Find out next week when I teach you how to start your stream from OBS and how to do some cool scene changes.

Live streaming exploded in growth as a result of the 2020 pandemic. Facebook benefited hugely from this surge, and the social media network has become one of the most popular platforms to watch and stream live video content. If you’re an individual content creator, entrepreneur, large business, church, or other organization looking to expand its reach with live video on Facebook, how can you make yourself stand out? By customizing your live stream, you can distinguish your live content from the millions of other streamers out there.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to level up your live streaming game on Facebook Live using customization options like overlays, titles, logos, backgrounds, and more. If you want a beginner’s guide to streaming on Facebook, check out our ultimate guide to live streaming on Facebook first.
👀 What are Facebook Live and its use cases?
Facebook Live is a live streaming platform that allows you to broadcast live video with your Facebook account. You can live stream from your personal account, as well as to a page or a group on Facebook. Live streaming on Facebook is 100% free; all you need is an account and live streaming equipment.
One reason why Facebook Live is so popular among streamers is because you can go live from the Facebook app or a browser on your desktop. Live streamers also like Facebook because it’s a social network with 2.38 billion active monthly users; the potential to find an audience for live video is greater, especially if you’ve already built up a network.
Just having followers on Facebook isn’t enough to make it as a live streamer on the platform, however. You need polished content that’s professional and appealing to your target audience. If you want to capitalize on your existing Facebook network to spark engagement for your live videos, there are tried and true use cases that can help you achieve your goal. The most common Facebook live streaming use cases are:
- Live event streaming. Conferences, product launches, webinars, and expos all make great live-streamed events, and you can broadcast them without encroaching on the overall purpose of your event. Live streaming also contributes to your event’s goal of reaching a wider audience and promoting your brand or organization.
- Interviews and Q&As. An interview or Q&A session is a great way to establish authority for your brand. An interview with an industry thought leader can lend credence to your brand, and a Q&A with your own employees can educate your target audience about who you are and what you do. This format is also engaging for live video because you can ask viewers to submit their questions for your interview guest too.
- Behind-the-scenes.Behind-the-scenes videos come in several forms. You can give viewers a live tour of your company headquarters, show them the process for creating your products, or do a live “day in the life” profile of your CEO. A behind-the-scenes live stream breaks down a barrier between you and your target audience. They’re a chance to offer exclusive looks at your business or organization that are reserved for your most loyal customers and followers.
All these types of content do well on Facebook Live, but they attract more audiences and look more professional when they’re customized.
👉 How to customize your Facebook Live stream
You can customize your live stream and make it more engaging using overlays, split screens, background music, animated backgrounds, graphics, and more. Let’s take a closer look at how these features make your stream more interactive and eye-catching.
- Split screen. A split-screen format allows both you and your guest to appear on-screen at the same time. This feature is ideal for interviews, panel discussions, podcast recording sessions, press conferences, business meetings, and any live stream with multiple participants.
- Overlays. A live stream overlay is a graphic that sits on top of your video feed. Overlays come in many sizes and shapes, with some animated and others static. You can use an overlay to show messages from the Facebook Live chat, provide the names of your stream participants to viewers, add calls to action with your social handles, and much more. An overlay makes your stream look more professional and enticing to viewers.
- Lower thirds.Lower thirds take up the bottom portion of your screen (sometimes one-third of the screen, sometimes less) and allow you to introduce guests, speakers, or hosts of your live stream on Facebook. Titles can be simple with a single line of text or more complex with graphics. Lower thirds are also a good place to promote your social media accounts, website, or other contact info.
- Animated background. An animated background is more captivating than a static one and makes your stream engaging for viewers. If your background is moving, remember to keep it simple, however. You want it to be dynamic, not distracting!
- Screen sharing. When you share your screen on a live stream, you can show viewers what’s on your computer monitor in real time. If you have a presentation to show or are doing a tutorial, sharing your screen is an important feature. Formatting your live stream so viewers can see your screen and still view your video feed keeps the live stream engaging as well.
- Background music. Music can help change the entire tone of your Facebook Live stream. It’s also a useful tool for boosting engagement and keeping viewers interested. But if you play music, it has to be legal to use. It must either be your original track, music you have a license to play, or copyright-free music. When you use Restream Studio to go live on Facebook, you have access to free background music you can legally use, and the tracks are infinite.
- Titles. Giving your Facebook Live stream a specific title and description will make it easier for viewers to find you. You can update the title, description, and game you’re streaming (if you are streaming a game) with Restream’s Titles.
There are many options that let you enhance your live stream on Facebook. You can modify all the features listed above with Restream Studio, an all-in-one live streaming solution.

Best Stream Graphics & Overlays
Graphics are an important part of your channel as they set the tone of your brand. It's important that you take time to figure out how you want to present yourself and your channel to your audience.
We know not everyone is an expert within design, which is why we've compiled this list of graphics resources. You should definitely be able to find a design that speaks to you, and that you want to represent your brand.
Some of the resources are free, some you'll have to pay. You shouldn't scoff at the idea of paying for premium graphics. $30 for a full stream package can not only make you take your channel more serious (since you've now invested more money into your stream), people will definitely notice the improvement in stream quality and brand consistency. This signals to viewers that you're a streamer that takes their craft seriously.
Our picks in resources are the best out there. You'll be able to find something that floats your boat.
Free + Premium
Own3D.tv is an all-in-one marketplace for streamers, as well as an educational platform for those just kicking off their streaming careers. They offer a mix of free streaming elements, as well as Basic and Premium packages that provide an advanced setup of themes, overlays and websites. Own3D acts more like a traditional marketplace, with full packages and one-off assets available for purchase, but the major difference that makes them stand out is their free courses. Meant for new streamers, these courses and tutorials are meant to help growing streamers get ahead and know how to use themes, notifications and any other asset before purchasing.
If you do decide to purchase an asset you can go for a one off item or choose a package. The Premium Packages typically go for $80.99 and the Basic Packages for $48.99. While the two packages have some overlap, what are the major differences between the two?
Not sure about investing that much cash toward your streaming career just yet? Well you can earn free overlays, animations and emote packages by signing up for the Own3rs Club, a co-branding initiative where in exchange for interacting, streaming and sharing Own3r content you rack up points.
As mentioned before, if you don’t need a full theme of assets, Own3rs Club also provides a vast library of single or groups of graphics and animations, including:
- Webcam Overlays
- Talking Overlays
- Offline Banners
- Twitch Profile Banners & Pictures
- YouTube Banners
- Desktop Wallpapers
- Alert Sounds
- Stinger Transitions
- Sub Emotes
- Sub Badges
- Bit Badges
These assets will range from just a few bucks to closer to the cost of packages depending on the amount being purchased, popularity and a handful of other factors.
Own3D.tv isn’t exactly the quick one-stop shop that many of the other sites on this list are, but it is a great place to purchase high quality packages or single assets to get you started. Additionally, they show a dedication to growing a streaming community and educating up and coming streamers with a loyalty program, free tutorials and courses that are worth checking out if you get stuck kicking off your foray into streaming.
Nerd or Die
Free + Premium
Originally starting as a tutorial website and YouTube channel, Nerd or Die has evolved into a brand that creates products, custom designs, free resources, and tutorials for anyone looking to enter into the live streaming world. Their goal is to make stuff they're proud of, and it shows.
Nerd or Die has some of the best graphics available for streamers on all platforms. And they have a mix of free and premium products, all of which will make your stream look sleek and professional.
Here's a list of some of their products:
- Sound effects
- Full stream packages
Most of their products are compatible with:
And did we mention that Nerd or Die creates custom event lists, chat boxes and stream widgets that are compatible with Streamlabs and StreamElements?!
How about free resources. Yes, Nerd or Die offers a few free resources that are just as amazing as their products. They include:
- Twitch Panel Maker (free)
- Stream Deck Icons (name your price)
- Alert Maker (name your price)
- Social Media Popup (name your price)
- And more
Nerd or Die is at the top of our list for graphics. Their site is designed extremely well, and each product has a detailed analysis of what's included and how to set it up to ensure you get the most out of your purchase.
If in doubt, check out NoD.
StreamElements takes an innovative approach to overlays, and stores all your graphics and assets in the cloud, reducing pre-stream setup time to a few seconds. This also enables launching your overlay from every device, and backs up all your overlay graphic assets.
How does it work?
StreamElements has its own Overlay editor that offers unrivaled management of your overlays and ease of use with one source loading. In the Overlay editor you can create, edit, duplicate and customize your overlays effortlessly.
All your overlays are stored in your StreamElements account, with each overlay having a unique URL to be placed in your streaming software (OBS project/Xsplit) and containing your whole setup.
Before you use the editor, you get to choose your theme from their gallery. If you don't want a universal theme, you can pick and choose your own overlays, alerts, panels, etc. But having a uniform theme will definitely help with branding, and is a much safer choice when creating (or updating) your profile.
And all of this is free. You pick your theme, and then you customize it with the overlay editor.
Out of the box, you immediately get the following with StreamElements:
- Overlays (in-game, stream started, stream ended, be right back, and just chatting)
You can plug and play your own custom graphics/overlays onto StreamElements. Nerd or Die, for example, creates themes specifically for StreamElements. Although you may have to pay, you can use a custom theme to really hone your brand identity.
If you prefer other chatbots for specific commands, or tips, you can import the following tools:
- StreamLabs (alertbox, tips)
- NightBot (commands, timers)
- Ankhbot (points, quotes, commands)
- DeepBot (points, commands)
- Moobot (commands, timers)
- TipeeStream (alertbox, tips)
As you can see, StreamElements has a lot more to offer than just graphics. Their platform is an all-in-one streaming solution for anyone on Twitch, YouTube, etc.
And it's not just for beginners. Some of the biggest streamers out there use StreamElements and love it. It's hard not to.
Free + Premium
Streamlabs is another all-in-one solution for streamers, like StreamElements. The service is free to use, but they also offer Prime, a subscription based membership that gives you additional features.
Prime costs $149/year or $19/month. What are the benefits of Prime?
- Themes. You can choose from thousands ofprofessionally designed themes to get you started. You can customize your own theme, or pick from thousands of pre-made options. Either way, your stream will look amazing.
- Apps. Every app is free with Prime, and they have over 40 - all designed to grow your channel. You can't use them unless you have Prime.
- Custom Website. Streamlabs will hook you up with a custom domain and website, leveling you up from casual streamer to professional content creator. You can customize your site however you wish.
- Merch Store. You have the option to create fully custom, dropshipped merchandise including clothing, headwear, stickers, home goods and more. There are tons of benefits to the custom merch store, but most importantly it allows you to diversify your income.
- Gold Status. You'll get tons of oppotunities to win amazing prizes and level up your stream with each new All-Star status. This includes PC giveaways, VIP giveaways, game codes, an exclusive gold t-shirt, and more.
- Mobile App. Get your own private server hosted on the Streamlabs Cloud. This ensures if your mobile IRL stream gets disconnected, you won't go offline and lose all your viewers.
- Cloudbot. You get to rename your bot and brand it however you wish. It takes customization to a new level.
You get a lot more, but you get the gist.
Although you don't need Prime, most of the themes, apps, widgets, etc require a Prime subscription in order to you to use them.
You may scoff at the idea of paying a yearly (or monthly) subscription, but you won't have to worry about anything else for your stream. You'll have access to anything you need. This includes:
- Chat boxes
- Events lists
- Stream labels
- Viewer count
- Tip jar
- Spin wheel
- Media sharing
- Donation tickers
- Sponsor banner
- Lots more
Streamlabs is very similar to StreamElements. They offer a lot of the same features and are a great choice for streamers to quickly get their stream setup while looking professional.
Visuals by Impulse
Free + Premium
Visuals by Impulse provides a mix of free and premium overlays, alerts, packages and more for Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube users.

What Is a Twitch Overlay ?
Even if you are a new streamer you have probably heard about Twitch overlays. These overlays are a set of graphics used by a streamer to help reinforce their brand or even display information.
Although these layouts were first used on Twitch, they have become so popular that you will also see them being used on other streaming platforms.
These overlay packages usually consist of static images, animations and widgets displayed using streamer software.
How To Add Your Overlays To Twitch, YouTube and Facebook Gaming ?
In order to add your overlays to a livestream you will first need streamer software such as OBS or Streamlabs. When setting up these overlays you will configure them with streamer software rather than directly through your streaming platform.
The most popular streaming software is OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) or Streamlabs OBS or XSplit. This software allows you to combine lots of different sources into one output.
This software allows you to display, webcam feeds, game play, images, animations and even web pages.
All of our packages come with a quick install file for Streamlabs OBS. This means with one click you can have all of your scenes and sources ready to go. However if you are using OBS then you would have to do a lot more manual work to get the overlays set up. Luckily we provide a full guide to help you.
Do I Need A Twitch Overlay Layout ?
In a nutshell, yes. While having a stream overlay is not a barrier to start streaming they are pretty much the standard among streamers now. Overlay packages are a great way to quickly and cheaply add production value to your channel.
These overlays are so popular because they help create engagement and brand reinforcement with your audience. They can be used to display information on to your viewers or even thank them for their participation.
How Do I Setup The Packages ?
All of our packages come with a Readme file. This file will contain all of the links to download your Streamlabs widgets and there is also a link to our detailed setup guide.
If you ever run into problems while trying to set up your products then feel free to contact us. We will get back to you as soon as we can to help
Are Source Files Included ?
As a general rule of thumb the majority of our products do come with source files included.
However you should check the details of each product. They will detail whether or not source files are included. Additionally they indicate for which elements the source files are available and the file format.
Can I Use Twitch Overlays with Other Streaming Platforms ?
Put simply, yes. Although a better question is whether the overlays will work with your streaming software such as OBS or Streamlabs. Popular streaming software allows you to go live on different platforms. Therefore if the overlays work with your streaming software you can expect them to also work with other platforms.
Our designs are created to work with OBS and Streamlabs OBS which are the most popular software out there.
How Do I Edit My Twitch Overlays & Layouts ?
While our overlay templates provide a great starting point for streamers. You may be the type of streamer who really wants to put your own spin on the overlays. While there are features like colour correction available, this may not be enough for those with a sharp eye for design.
Most of our overlay packages come with the photoshop source files. If you have access to photoshop then this will allow you to put your own spin and customizations on the graphics. Unfortunately we do not yet provide the After Effects source files to allow for complete customisation of the animated files.
We are working on providing these to you in the future and will also provide tutorials on how to use them.
If you are more interested in how to create a Twitch overlay from scratch then you would need to get familiar with photoshop and after effects. We recommend checking some tutorials on YouTube.
What To Expect From Our Twitch Overlays Template Packs ?
The aim of our products is to be packed with every feature and element that a streamer could need. Within our Twitch packages we include, overlays, channel art, Streamlabs widgets, screens, facecam border, and alerts. We even include fast setup files for Streamlabs OBS users, to get you up and running in minutes.

Fortunately we have some free animated twitch overlays, and even fully customisable alerts in our store. We plan to keep adding more free designs with the goal of helping streamers get started no matter their budget.
What Style Of Overlay To Use ?
Choosing the right style to fit with your personality or brand is an important decision when choosing your overlay. In general if you play a certain type of game a lot then you would be best choosing an overlay that fits with that games aesthetics.
If you have a favourite colour then you go for a package with strong use of that colour. If you have checked out our store, you would have noticed the wide range of styles that we feature. We even have style categories such as cute and minimalist overlays.
If you are in any way serious about your live streaming, it won't be long before you are going to want to change the appearance of your broadcasts from the default visuals used by your streaming software.

And if you can afford a small sum, you will find an even wider variety of premium overlays. It may cost more to buy entire stream design packages, but the extra options offered may make the expense worth it if you want your screen to ping and stand out from the opposition on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook Gaming.
