OBS 24 is now available and in this tutorial, you are going to learn how you can set up dockable PTZ camera controls inside of your OBS interface for PTZOptics cameras. Once you have downloaded the latest version of OBS (which should be 24.0 of later), you should make sure that you uninstall any previous version of OBS. Once you have uninstalled a previous version of OBS you can go ahead and install the latest 24.0 or later version.
Download the version 24.0 release candidate here for testing – https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/releases/tag/24.0.0-rc1
The new feature you can use to create custom PTZ camera controllers are called “Custom Browser Docks” and it can be found under the main “View” dropdown menu nested in the “Docks” area. If you have never ventured into this area of OBS, you will notice you have the ability to reset and lock the current OBS user interface. You also have the ability to quickly open or close any of the dockable modules inside of your layout. Go ahead and play with your layout and determine which modules you want to access before moving forward. (more…)
