Thought we maybe could use a thread where we can just post about that software you stumbled across that made your life easier and want to tell everyone else about
Voice Meter Banana is a virtual audio mixer which makes having multiple audio out devices a lot easier to manage as well as allowing one to easily filter audio when streaming. For example my friends and I occasionally stream while playing for each other but it gets really annoying when you hear yourself talking from Discord in the Stream. With VMB I have it setup so that game audio is going to a virtual audio device before going to my headphones which means I can then just have OBS record the audio from that virtual audio device and the stream never hears my Discord chat.
DaVinci Resolve is hands down the best free video editor I have used. I can’t begin to tell you how many various video editors I tried and while I would much prefer open source DaVinci doesn’t crash every 15 minutes like they all seem to do while also having some nice features that I probably will never use. Having now gotten Vegas Pro from a recent Humble Bundle I would almost say a normal user isn’t going to notice a difference between the two.
