Xaymar filter-shadow-sdf: Inner/Outer shadow based on signed distance fields
Adds Inner/Outer Shadows for dynamic sources based on signed distance field generation. This is fast, but does add a bit of latency when it comes to updates - which means that moving objects will leave a trail before the generator has a chance to update.

OBS Stream Effects

Bring your stream to life with more modern effects! Stream Effects adds several much needed features to OBS Studio, such as real time Blur and 3D Transform. Now you can blur out sources you think may be questionable, add sick 3D effects or recreate the Heroes of the Storm displacement overlay with the Displacement filter.

Building the Project

Building the project is fairly easy and relies on CMake to ease the process.


  • Visual Studio 2013, 2015 or 2017
  • CMake
  • A built version of obs-studio


The project supports both command line and GUI versions of cmake, these are the parameters than can be configured:

  • PATH_OBSStudio: Path to the root of a completely built obs-studio version.
  • INSTALL_DIR: Where the INSTALL target installs files to.
  • PACKAGE_PREFIX: The prefix for the PACKAGE_* generated files.
  • PACKAGE_SUFFIX: The suffix for the PACKAGE_* generated files, defaults to the version number.


Building is simply handled by CMake. If you generated an IDE project, just use the IDE provided options for building.


You can directly install files into an existing obs-studio installation or put them in a separate directory for later packaging and releasing. Simply point INSTALL_DIR to the directory where you want the files to be installed to and then run the INSTALL target (which will also build the project if it hasn't been built yet).


Packaging has two options, 7zip and zip. Simply run the targets PACKAGE_ZIP and/or PACKAGE_7ZIP and you will have a build that you can distribute.

Continuous Integration

To ease detection of bad commits and PRs, CI support has been added to the project. Currently the following CI providers are supported:

  • AppVeyor (for Windows on any support Visual Studio version)
