Procedure for adding shot layer for a Zoom Meeting to add to the broadcast
I was looking for the instructions for adding a Zoom meeting screen capture as part of a broadcast as we remote presenters we want to bring in. Right now I'm using the Screen Capture option and have figured out how to configure the window in properties, etc., but I thought there was a better way to do this? I found a procedure from 2017 "How to bring in a guest remotely with Zoom", but these procedures appear outdated.
These are the steps I use now:
Bring Outside Presenter into Wirecast
1) Click “+”/Add another Shot Layer (Blue Strip on bottom of screen)
2) Choose Screen Capture/New Screen Capture
a) The “Screen Capture Properties” (circle with 3 dots on top menu) window will immediately replace the “Shot Layers”. Be sure the following boxes are checked:
i) Capture Video Box is checked
ii) Capture Type: Window
iii) Show Cursor Box is checked:
iv) Capture System Audio (√ sometimes have issue with this - no audio)
v) Select Window/Monitor – Configure Box (click Configure Box)
(1) Application: Zoom (Zoom must be open and meeting running)
(2) Window: Zoom Meeting
Would love up to date user manual directions.

If Zoom is on another computer you can use the free Newtek NDI Scan Converter which will send video and audio over the local network.
Craig, update: We are not bringing Zoom into Wirecast via a shot layer any longer. We are using NDI Screen Capture on a PC with Zoom, feeding into Blackmagic Shuttle (which is connected to our studio HD camera for filming against green screen) to Wirecast on my MacBook Pro and I am Livestreaming the Zoom to our audience via USTREAM/our website.
