Overlay designs are essential for most streamers, especially when they are animated. Here is a compilation out of my own creations representing the most popular animated Twitch overlay elements.
ANIMATED START & ENDING SCREENS
Start screens shouldn’t be missing in any stream these days. It enables the streamer to gather his fan base in his channel and build hype before the start of the stream. The advantage here is that the streamer can start the session with an already higher number of viewers.
End screens have the effect that the stream does not end abruptly and enables the viewer to choose another channel or to wait for a host.
ANIMATED STREAM ALERTS
An attractive alert animation increases the likelihood of interaction by the viewer. This addresses the reward system in the brain. Need, action, reward. Keep your viewers addicted to your stream.
OVERLAY & STINGER TRANSITIONS
Transitions are an elegant way to switch between different scenes. It gives the stream the final touch.
STREAM LOGO ANIMATIONS
Logo Reveals are a powerful tool to put a unique stamp on your videos and to build anticipation for the content that follows.
