How to add a Pre-recorded Live Stream after a Countdown?

There are cases when you want to show the countdown right before the beginning of your pre-recorded 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 with your Pre-recorded video.

3. Make a tick on AutoSync Mode and add a Video layer.

Note: If you make any changes within a scene (f.e. dragging or removing layers) while AutoSync Mode is active, all the changes will be SYNCed and visible to your audience right away.
If you don't want to synchronize any changes automatically, you can do it manually by clicking Sync with Live button instead. 

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

5. Once you're ready to switch from a Countdown to your Pre-recorded video, 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.
