There are cases when you want to show the countdown right before the beginning of your actual live stream. In order to do so, take the following steps: 

1. Setup a Countdown layer and click on Scenes at the bottom.

2. Click on Plus Icon to add a new Scene.

3. Make a tick on 'Instant Scenes Switch' and add a Video layer.

4. Choose Web Cam (Make sure that your Microphone is connected too). If you have an external microphone, add an Addiotnal layer (click Audio > Microphone).

5. Launch your stream, by clicking on 'Go Live' button.

6. Once you're ready to switch from a Countdown to an actual Live, just click on a scene, and it will be synchronized with live right away. 

Note: When the stream is live, you'll see a Red dot in the corner of the scene, which is currently synchronized and displayed in your stream. 

Note: In case you experience any technical issues with Audio/Video, please follow this short instruction.
