Hello Makiru and TieTuesday :)
As pointed above by FurRiffic there are folks using OBS right now with FaceRig.


The most likely reason it you are/were seeing a solid black feed 3 days ago is most likely because you were using the experimental "nextversion" branch, but did not read the announcement with the change log.

The announcement stated that for that particular experimental version, a manual installation step was needed for installing the brand new virtual webcam driver ( without that step you would be getting a black video feed ).

Fortunately, in the mean-time we have moved on from that testing stage ( with positive feedback from the folks who had installed it) , and now the new driver gets auto installed when the build updates on the "nextversion" branch ( no need for the manual install step anymore) . Please make sure you do not use the old virtual webcam, (the ones with "32" or "64" in the name), they are deprecated. :)


Let us know the above guess was indeed the case, or if you are experiencing similar symptoms , but caused by another issue. "black video feed" may also occur if you have more than one program trying to use the virtual camera at the same time, as those other programs can grab use of the virtual camera in exclusive mode before OBS/xsplit does ( and thus black feed occurs). Simply close all programs who may be using the virtual camera before starting OBS and you should be good :).


At any rate, we do not reccomend using the experimental "nextversion" branch when planning FaceRig use at events. For events, only use the default, more widely tested branch. In the unlikely eventuality of us pushing a broken update on the default branch, you can still roll back to the previous good version by using "previousbranch".
