Ever since I started 3D printing, I have relied on many people who post videos of their experiences on YouTube and other web sites.
In the fall of 2016, I started researching and assembling some video gear so that I could give back to the community by sharing some of my experiences. Unfortunately, some family issues distracted me for a while, but, I am finally ready to start some live streaming to share some of my adventures. Here is some of the gear that I am currently using for live streaming and editing video.
This is the main computer that I use for creating 3D models, slicing and communicating with the printers.
MacBook Pro 13″ i5, 8gb ram running Mojave
2 x 27″ Asus Monitors
Wacom Intuos (came bundled with ZbrushCore)
Zbrush (upgraded from ZbrushCore)
Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc)
This computer was added because the Creative Computer could not handle multiple webcam inputs, running the creative software, encoding and uploading simultaneously. Using a stand alone computer seemed like the best solution.
Previously used HP mid-tower AMD FX-8150 with upgrades, 24gb ram, 120SSD boot drive, 2TB data drive, Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
OBS Studio (open source)
Elgato HD60S (from MacBook Pro HDMI output)
2 x Logitech C920

iPad for checking stream / chat / etc
Old Sony 40″ LCD TV for reading chat with my old eyes
