Faking a computer glitch w/Python & OBS [Live Coding Recap]

Streamed: 10/3 on Twitch

This was SUCH a fun stream! We designed and tested a dramatic fake hack/glitch that happens whenever another channel raids us during streams. Such a blast when it all came together at the end!!

During the stream we...

✔ got the Flask-served browser page playing a raid alert song
✔ designed a separate scene in OBS to transition to during raids
✔ purchased a glitch transition to "fake" a computer glitch
✔ learned how to override default transitions in OBS
✔ put together a sequence of events that play out during the RAID in OBS
✔ tested the RAID during an actual RAID! <3
