How to Use Stream Avatars for Free Offline
Stream Avatars is a popular content creation tool for live video broadcasting that adds flair to your video and promotes viewer engagement and channel growth. With Stream Avatars, you can customize your own avatars, equipment, and name tags, or download community-made ones from the Steam workshop. You can also interact with your viewers by letting them knock each other off the screen with punches, bombs, or duels, or play mini-games like basketball, slots, and boss fights.
But what if you want to use Stream Avatars for free offline? Maybe you want to test it out before buying it, or you want to use it for recording videos instead of live streaming. Or maybe you just want to have some fun with your avatars without an internet connection. Is it possible to use Stream Avatars for free offline?
The answer is yes, but with some limitations. In this article, we will show you how to use Stream Avatars for free offline in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download Stream Avatars Demo
The first step is to download the Stream Avatars demo from the Steam store. The demo is free and allows you to use Stream Avatars offline with some restrictions. You can only use the default avatars and backgrounds, and you cannot access the workshop or the viewer panel. You also cannot save your settings or progress.
To download the Stream Avatars demo, go to this link [^2^] and click on “Download Demo” on the right side of the page. You will need to have Steam installed on your computer to download and run the demo.
Step 2: Launch Stream Avatars Demo
Once you have downloaded the Stream Avatars demo, launch it from your Steam library. You will see a window that asks you to choose a platform to connect to. Since you want to use Stream Avatars offline, click on “Offline Mode”.
You will then see a window that asks you to choose a background for your stream. You can choose from four default backgrounds: Forest, Space, City, or Castle. Click on the one you like and then click on “Start”.
Step 3: Customize Your Avatar
Now you can customize your avatar by clicking on the gear icon on the top left corner of the screen. You can change your avatar’s name, color, outfit, accessories, and emotes. You can also adjust your avatar’s size, speed, gravity, and jump height.
However, keep in mind that you cannot save your customizations in the demo version. If you close the app or change your background, you will lose your settings and have to start over.
Step 4: Record Your Video
Once you are happy with your avatar’s appearance and behavior, you can record your video using any screen recording software of your choice. You can also use OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS to capture your screen and add other elements like webcam, microphone, alerts, etc.
To record your video using OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS, follow these steps:
- Add a new source by clicking on the “+” icon under Sources.
- Select “Window Capture” from the list of sources.
- Name your source and click on “OK”.
- Select “Stream Avatars” from the Window dropdown menu.
- Click on “OK” again.
- Resize and position your source as you like.
- Click on “Start Recording” or “Start Streaming” depending on what you want to do.
You can also use hotkeys to start and stop recording or streaming. To set up hotkeys in OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS, go to Settings > Hotkeys and assign keys for Start Recording/Stop Recording or Start Streaming/Stop Streaming.
Stream Avatars is a fun and engaging way to spice up your live video broadcasts and interact with your viewers. But if you want to use it for free offline, you can do so
