Zoom and Follow

Have you ever needed to zoom in on your screen to show some fine detail work, or to make your large 4k/ultrawide monitor appear less daunting on stream? Zoom and Follow for OBS Studio does exactly that, zooms in on your mouse and follows it around. Configurable and low-impact, you can now do old school Camtasia zoom live!

Maintained for the current release version of OBS

Inspired by caharkness's Magic Window

Dependencies

Install

  • Install Python 3 (3.6.x for OBS version <28 for Windows and Mac OS, any Python 3 for OBS version 28+)

    Make sure that you configure the correct version of Python within OBS in the "Scripts" window > "Python Settings" tab

  • Install PyWinCtl

    Be sure to install to the Python version that OBS is using.

  • Add zoom_and_follow_mouse.py as an OBS script

How to Use

  • Setup a hotkey for Enable/Disable Mouse Zoom
  • Setup a hotkey for Enable/Disable Mouse Follow
  • Select a source to zoom into as part of the script settings
  • Configure the size of the zoom window
  • Edit the bounding box settings for the source in it's "Edit Transform" menu, usually to Stretch to inner bounds and your canvas size
  • Use Zoom hotkey to zoom in to the source

Set up zoom control for multiple sources

Duplicate (and optionally rename) zoom_and_follow_mouse.py, add it as an OBS script, and follow the How to Use section with the duplicate copy.

To Do

  • Automatically setup transform bounding box
