Decorate HP bar and ammo

  • I'm trying to replicate one visual effect. The bottom line is that the game has interface elements that appear only if health is below 100% (a HP bar appears), and also if a weapon is in your hands (an ammo counter appears).
    I saw one streamer how he was able to visually change the design of these strips on stream. (in the game he saw a standard display) That is, when the interface is inactive, the overlay is not visible, but when it appears, it appears with an overlay.
    I tried to use different options available in obs, but could not understand how it was done. The first image is the standard color and interface https://ibb.co/NT47Ttr , the second image is how it looked on the stream https://ibb.co/Y2HgDbV .
    Tell me how this can be done, what overlay methods or maybe plugins should be used?

  • Hey! Not sure if you're still looking for help on this, but it's my first time taking a look at the Creator Crew section.

    For one way to do this, you'll likely need three things:

    Basically, you'd make a new Clone source (copying the SoT capture). To this, you'd add either a Chrome or Color filter targeting the colour of the health bar. This will result in an image without the health/ammo bars.

    Finally, you'd make use of the Dynamic Mask filter (targeting the inverse of the previous clone) on full-size source image of what you want overlayed on your health bar. Note that the image ideally needs to be the same dimensions as the gameplay capture source.
