Question as above - would it be possible to somehow use ReShade as an input source for OBS? In games where I already have ReShade injected, it would probably save a small (possibly very small, although it may still be academically interesting) amount of overhead if OBS could copy the game's backbuffer from ReShade instead of injecting another hook of its own into the game. I realize this would likely require some additional programming in both ReShade and OBS, so it may not be easy to accomplish, nor do I have anywhere near the level of programming knowhow I would need to try it on my own. If this thought is totally out in left field, I apologize.

This is possible with the ReShade 5 add-on API. Will see if I can add this as one of the add-on examples. Proof (this is not using the OBS hook, but is directly streamed out of ReShade into OBS):

Nice, good stuff. For anyone who streams and also uses ReShade this makes a lot of sense since generally, the less things that are hooking the executable, the better.

Hello Crosire.

Is there a way to get the "OBS Capture Addon? "

Im recording Youtube Videos and it would be great to spice them up with some nice effects.

You can build it yourself from source from the above link. But I now put prebuilt binaries here too:
reshade.me/downloads/addons/obs_capture_x86.addon (for 32-bit games)
reshade.me/downloads/addons/obs_capture_x64.addon (for 64-bit games)

Thanks for the quick answer.

Ah okay. i thought there was anything official released for public download.
I'm not familiar with "building" something on my own. :dry:

I expericened to get the effects displayed working in OBS. but the recorded footage is clean with no effects sadly.
