Capturing Models with OBS Studio?
Pretty sure the answer is no, but is there anyway to grab the models using OBS Studio WITHOUT using Display capture? I'm not a fan of people seeing every window I have open when I alt tab.

If not currently an option is there a chance this is planned for a future update? It just needs to show up as a program running in Windows so it can be grabbed by OBS.

Any develops care to give their opinion? I know a lot of vtubers, myself included, that love to use this to have our models dance on stream. However it kinda stinks that the only way to capture it is to use a display capture. You can select DME using a game or window capture but it only shows the menus. Is there any chance this could be fixed so that capturing it in OBS would overlay the dancers instead of the menu?

I would like to do the same thing. How did you get it working at all?

You have to just have it running and then select a display capture source, the one that just shows your whole monitor. That is the only way to capture the actual dancers that I am away of. So I'm hoping the developers could change something to have the dancers detectable using the Game or Window sources instead.

ahh ok yea I did that, but its not practical for actually using on stream. Unless your maybe browsing web or watching video with chat. I only have 2 monitors right now, if I had a third I could make the wallpaper green and chroma key an avatar out. Using a hole monitor just for this is kinda to much too.Other Idea I was looking into was spoofing a display and doing the same thing. Evidently you can make a dummy plug for the dvi port using a dvi to vga adapter. Anyway that all iv come up with hope devs just add a windowed option.
You could use a second monitor and just use that to capture your content.

I have 3 monitors but capturing displays is just bad practice and I already have monitoring stuff up on them.
