Starting with Livestream Studio version 3.0, producers who use Livestream Studio on low-performance computers can now help preserve their CPU by using Low Definition project formats.
In settings, under the ‘Project Format’ menu, there is a new option for Broadcast Standard.
Alongside High Definition mode, Studio offers Ultra HD, Low CPU Performance, and Low Definition modes.
'Low CPU Performance' includes 720p formats only; 'Low Definition mode' includes 480p formats and lower. These should be selected when using low-performance computers and laptops.
Any HD input sources will convert to the selected project format automatically.
When using Low Definition mode, you will only be able to stream in a resolution equal to your selected Project Format regardless of which streaming provider you use. This is to preserve the CPU.
