      Bite The Bullet Twitch Assets

      Bite The Bullet Twitch Assets

       

      Some of the most important aspects of being a streamer is creating the channel page. Your channel page is where you can put your informations about you and your stream for your viewers to see.

       

      Click the button below to download the Bite The Bullet Twitch Asset!

      Use the table below as reference to the proper sizing of graphic that you can use on your Twitch channel.

       

      OPTIMIZE YOUR FILE SIZE

      Twitch is pretty flexible when it comes to the file size of images that you can upload and use for your page. In general, we’re working with a 10 MB size limit. If you’re over the limit, and haven’t quested your way to higher graphics editing XP, use a tool like EZ Gif or Tiny PNG with lossless compression.

       

      TO GIF, OR NOT TO GIF

      This is entirely up to the individual. As a general rule of thumb, you don’t need to GIF hard in most cases. GIFs are great for animations like emotes. For general customization on your Twitch graphics, you will want to stick to PNG or JPG. PNG files are perfect for cases where you need to maintain transparency in the background. There are significant file size differences for both, and JPG offers better compression and smaller overall files.

       

      LET’S MAKE SOME TWITCH GRAPHICS

      The world is your oyster, and you have infinite options when it comes to your graphics.

      If you’re not a Photoshop pro, stroll over and download GIMP for digital design. If GIMP isn’t doing it for you, simple apps like Placeit get the job done fast and with great results. It’s the perfect option for the graphics novice, and a streamer beginner that doesn’t yet have a fully distilled brand style guide to work from.

      Take a template and tweak until your heart is content. Save it, upload it to Twitch, and you’re in business!

      BITE THE BULLET TWITCH PARTNER CHEERMOTE

       

       

      After you’ve become a partner with Twitch you unlock some very cool customization perks. The most exciting to many Twitch fans are the Cheermotes on your channel. You can set 5 unique cheermotes depending on each tier of Bits 1, 100, 1,000, 5,000, and 10,000. In simple mode you just need to upload the 112 x 112 size of your cheermote. In advanced mode you can upload in 5 different sizes: 28 x 28, 42 x 42, 56 x 56, 84 x 84, and 112 x 112.

      In most cases, simple mode will do just fine. The advanced mode is most useful when a cheermote looks best at higher resolutions, and is harder to distinguish at smaller resolutions.

      Bite The Bullet Interactives

      • Deeper levels of engagement between a streamer and their audience.
      • Infinite replayability.

      Audience Voting

      Viewers earn points while watching and can spend them at any time to:

      • Refill Chewie’s HP
      • Spawn single enemies or groups of enemies
      • Spawn different tiers of randomized weapons
      • Spawn different kinds of items (nutrient pickups)

       

      “Popcorn” Engagement

      Viewers opt-in to a raffle system where they spend points to cause an in-game effect of their choice if they win.

       

      Summary:

      The bot says in the chat that a raffle is happening and gives exact instructions on how to participate (“Type !raffle followed by the name of a paid command. For example: !raffle spawnenemy”), and says how long the raffle will last. When viewers participate, the bot acknowledges them. When the duration of the raffle ends, the raffle winner is announced in game and chat, and their chosen effect. C takes place. A new raffle then begins.

       

      Detailed Description:

      While the player is in gameplay (not in the main menu or hub world) a bot will periodically announce a raffle, giving instructions on how to participate. Viewers follow the instructions given by the bot to ‘bet’ a fixed amount of points to participate in the raffle. The viewer can pick from any paid command in their submission to the raffle. If they win the raffle, their prize is the command they chose being applied in-game. For example, it costs 100 points to participate in the raffle, and you can put up a 1000-point cost command as your bet. If you win the raffle, your 1000 point command is applied to gameplay and it only costs you the risked amount of 100 points. The winner of the raffle is announced in chat (along with the effect they chose) and the raffle then repeats. Additionally, the name of the winner is shown in game in a popup, also showing the effect they chose.

       

      The instructions the bot provides at raffle start are:

      "A new raffle has begun! The raffle will last seconds. Type !raffle followed by the name of a paid command. For example: !raffle spawnenemy"

      The raffle has dynamic timings to prevent spam in inactive streams. If no viewers participated in the last raffle, the new raffle will wait several times longer for raffle entries to come in. The default raffle duration is 5 minutes. During this time, any viewer can cast in their raffle. If no one participated in the previous raffle cycle, the next raffle will last 25 minutes. As a baseline, the bot only sends messages at the beginning and end of the raffle - first to announce it is happening, and second to announce the winner. When a user submits a raffle entry, the bot responds stating that the user's submission has been received. Users are able to submit multiple raffle entries to improve their odds of winning, but each submission still has the same cost in points.

      Guide for Twitch Images Size

       

      To set yourself apart from other streamers, having Twitch graphics for your channel is an absolute must. Using this guide we'll tell you all the sizes you can use on your Twitch channel for any form of graphic you can use. Includes image sizes for your panels, alerts, offline banners, profile photo, VOD thumbnail, and profile banner!

       


      You 're no longer alone when you're gaming with a Twitch channel — whether you're performing a raid or fighting evil forces, you have a whole crowd behind you cheering you on. Link to your fans and gain more followers by adding images that will give your Twitch channel a unique personality.

       

       

      TWITCH PROFILE PHOTO (AVATAR)

       

       

      Let's start with the basics of it. Your Profile Picture also referred to as an Avatar, is the primary image associated with your Twitch channel. The first impression of your stream brand will likely be a new viewer, so make it count.

      Remember that Profile Pictures are square unlike most other stream graphics – you'll need to use an aspect ratio of 1:1 (equal in height and width). Twitch recommends a minimum size of 200 x 200 pixels, with a maximum size of 256 x 256 pixels. If possible, we suggest using 256 x 256 to ensure the highest possible image quality – anything above this size and Twitch will automatically scale down your image. The maximum file size is 10 MB, and JPEG, PNG, & GIF are only the file types approved.

      Recommended Size: 256 x 256 pixels

      Maximum File Size: 10MB

      Accepted File Types: JPEG, PNG, GIF

       

      TWITCH PROFILE BANNER (COVER PHOTO)

       

       

      So, you caught their attention successfully and they are on your channel side. Now win them with an epic, imaginative Cover Picture.

      Now let's just think about the measurements. With the latest updates, Twitch suggests a resolution size of 1200 x 380 pixels. Any need to get fancy with image height anything smaller or larger than 380 pixels will automatically scale to the 380px needed. Again, at the moment max file size is 10 MB, and approved file types include JPEG, PNG, & GIF.

      One thing to remember here: the banner art should scale according to each user's window width. It means that if a user's browser window is wider than your picture width, your banner must extend. TDLR, keep your height constant @ 380 pixels, but the wider the image, the better it will scale – which means you could theoretically extend your width beyond 1200px for ultra-high - resolution (we saw a few banners as big as 3000px!).

      Recommended Size: 1200 x 380 pixels

      Maximum File Size: 10MB

      Accepted File Types: JPEG, PNG, GIF

       

      TWITCH OFFLINE BANNER (VIDEO PLAYER BANNER, STREAM SCREENS)

       

       

      Marathon-streams, late-night IRL chats, and G-FUEL 's unhealthy numbers ... who needs to sleep when you're having such fun? Yet for R&R, even the streaming gods need time off-camera. The question is, what happens when you're away from your channel? Okay, this is where banners offline come in. When viewers visit your channel, a static banner image featuring (hopefully) engaging visuals will welcome them and some of the channel info essentials. A well-designed Twitch Offline Banner hustles while you're asleep.

      The Twitch Offline Banner is comparatively straightforward when it comes to scaling. Stick to a 16:9 ratio, with suggested 1920 x 1080 dimensions for maximum resolution and efficiency. Do you want to keep it below 10 MB? Then stick to JPEGs & PNGs. Here's pretty cut-and-dry, people.

      So while we're at it, above there applies to your usual stream displays, too. You know, Start Screens, BRB Screens, Stream Stopping Screens, and so on. Just stick with the resolution & sizes above / below and you're good to go, playa.

      Recommended Size: 1920 x 1080 pixels

      Maximum File Size: 10MB

      Accepted File Types: JPEG & PNG

       

      TWITCH THUMBNAIL

       

       

      Often it all hits right on the line ... You 're in the field, the donations and subs are flowing, and talk is in heat. Save the bad boy out as a VOD to reshare with your community at a later date once the Stream Ending screen has rolled on. But a pro streamer knows that VODs alone do not guarantee views – to get followers to press, you'll want to upload an entertaining and innovative Thumbnail image.

      This one is pretty easy – to pull off an awesome Twitch thumbnail you don't need crazy graphic skills. You'll want to stick to the standard 16:9 aspect ratio, with an overall 1280 x 720 pixel dimensions. As simple as pie, stick with JPEGs or PNGs.

      Recommended Size: 1280 x 720 pixels

      Accepted File Types: JPEG & PNG

       

      TWITCH WEBCAM (OVERLAYS)

       

       

      So, you have opted to use an on-stream Webcam overlay. Cheers to that one. Soon, hundreds, if not thousands, of audiences all over the world will see that gorgeous smile of yours. Just don't look like a novice with a slipshod overlay – put some time & thought into your webcam concept and you'll be rewarded with it.

      There are two common Webcam choices to consider here: aspect ratios 16:9 or 4:3. In the end, the decision will depend on the resolution of your stream camera. While 16:9 seems to be more common, some streamers prefer Webcam frames of 4:3.

      Webcams are really a bit of an unusual ity from a production point of view. Pinning down precise sizes or proportions is difficult since streamers usually crop their Camera boxes over OBS to suit the image they 're looking for – or through rendering unique forms by masks, etc. Nearly always, the final frame will be scaled down and modified by each streamer to match their needs. Typically speaking, no two streamers can scale their cam the same wayit all comes down to personal choice.

      For such reason, it is difficult to prescribe a particular webcam size, while we consider making it as wide as possible. Start at the very least with 1920 x 1080 pixels, so that you maintain the consistency of the display when scaling down. Using a PNG (JPEGs are not recommended because they do not enable transparency) if your camera is static. Start with a GIF, for animated frames.

      Recommended Size: 1920 x 1080 pixels

      Accepted File Types: PNG (Static) & GIF (Animated)

       

      TWITCH PANELS

       

       

      Let's talk about your stream info ... If you've ever used the native header markdown on Twitch, you know it's a lot of BLEH. Heyyyy, groups of text, adios viewers. Really, do not get us sick. Veteran streamers use Panels to create sparkling, interactive channel profiles – without eye-soring. Present your most important channel information in meaningful, bite-sized bits while incorporating your stream brand and personality at the same time through unique designs.

      Okay, down to business – let 's talk about sizes. For Panel Headers, the maximum width is 320 pixels – something wider than that and Twitch will scale the image automatically. For height, creativity has a bit more leeway to you. Many streamers enjoy using shorter, horizontal panels with a simple segment title – 'ABOUT ME' or 'DONATE' or 'SOCIAL MEDIA' for example. For these, we suggest 75 pixels (or 320 x 75 px) in height. Others prefer taller, vertical (or square) panels allowing more text and image in the space, in which case we recommend a maximum height of 600 pixels (or 320 x 600 px). The streamers often like to mix in both types. It's your choice. Here, the maximum file size is 2.9 MB while we recommend that you stick to JPEG or PNG.

      Recommended Size: 320 x 75 pixels (Minimum), 320 x 600 pixels (Maximum)

      Maximum File Size: 2.9MB

      Accepted File Types: JPEG & PNG

       

      TWITCH ALERTS

       



       

      Let's be honest, we all want to be noticed by senpai – and that includes your viewers. Only think about some of the game 's largest streamers ... $10 promises you can remember their famous drops of alerts within seconds.

      Stream alerts can be one of the best resources for increasing the Twitch community and encouraging engagement with viewers. Set up your alerts properly, and each supporter, sub, host, or donation can expand your brand of streamer – and bring you one step closer to the pros.

      Unlike the other Twitch graphics listed here, Stream Alerts are generally managed via a third party streamer software, such as Streamlabs, and then connected to your OBS Studio. We suggest that you stick with the 750 x 250 pixel alert dimensions. Go for PNG files for static alerts (JPEGs aren't suitable, since they lack transparency). You'll want to use GIF or WEBM files for the animated alerts. The maximum file size here is 10MB.

      Recommended Size: 750 x 250 pixels

      Maximum File Size: 10MB

      Accepted File Types: PNG (Static) & GIF / WEBM (Animated)

       

      Welp, this is the end of the guide, folks. Style guidelines and size specifications for all Twitch graphics. Now go ahead and rule the world of streaming like any faceroll-EZ, uber-tilted Bob Ross. The pen is in your hands and the streamer-sphere is your canvas.

      Bite the Bullet Camera

      Bite the Bullet Camera

      The blue line tracks the target interpolation point.

      The single green line represents the position the camera should have after all interpolation calculations.

      The red line represents the past interpolation points (in other words, positions where the green line was).

      You can see how the camera is usually in the same position as the green line (indicated with the camera icon). This is when the camera tracking was working as expected. This was used while I was trying to figure out why the camera was jolting rapidly in certain directions. I wasn't sure if it was the interpolation calculation breaking, or something else breaking it.

      You can observe the target blue line suddenly jumps to a distant location, and at the same moment, the camera goes to its position. This itself visually represents the bug, as the camera should've kept at the same position as the green line, which kept moving smoothly even when the blue line had a big sudden shift in position.

      This showed me that something was overriding the valid calculated position (green), immediately snapping the camera to the target position (blue). In this case, the old code was forcing the camera to fit within our area bounds. Our intended effect was that the target (blue) point would jump suddenly so it stayed within bounds as seen in the video, but not force the camera with it at the same time, instead, allowing it to smoothly track to the target point


      3:23

      How I smoothed camera feel even further, illustrated with shrew diagram:

      C = Camera

      P = Player

      LG1 = Last frame's calculated camera goal position

      LG2 = Current frame's calculated camera goal position





      The calculated camera goal position is based upon things like camera bounds, player position, and aiming direction.

      Your typical basic interpolation would, on the previous frame, have lerped (linearly interpolated) to LG1, and on this frame, lerped to LG2.

      We now also calculate an interpolated goal position (positions of which exist on the red line, in the direction of LG1 to LG2), and the camera interpolates to that interpolated position instead (this new path of the camera path represented by the green line).

      The difference between our method and the basic lerp can be seen by comparing the color-coded paths of the camera. Consider on frame 1 we are on LG1, and on frame 2 we need to go to LG2. The gap between the two purple lines indicates the difference between the camera trajectory when using a basic lerp method. In our method, the difference in camera trajectory is between the purple line to LG1 and the green line leading to the inner-interpolated position.

      This difference is mainly felt in the case of sudden large shifts in goal position. These shifts in goal position will feel smoother compared to a basic lerp method. Imagine for example if LG1 and LG2 were on opposite sides of the camera. In a case like this where the target position made a large sudden movement, with a basic interpolation approach, the camera would turn on a dime to go to its new dramatically different destination. The camera's trajectory would therefore suddenly be in a completely different direction even though its movement is interpolated. Our technique is about also smoothing the trajectory, not just the movement.

      In our method, the change in destination would not have such a dramatic and immediate effect on camera trajectory because the destination we actually use (in the red line above) is the product of interpolation, so the camera will have a soft turn to the new destination. In extreme cases, the direction of the camera's trajectory can still change quickly, but because the destination is interpolated, the camera will 'turn around' slower. The camera isn't immediately interpolating to the distant target point (which would result in high speed), it instead targets the interpolated destination, resulting in a gradual ramp in speed as the interpolated destination tends toward the real destination.
